Vice President Kamala Harris spent much of her day obsessing over abortion, tweeting a widely-mocked post in the morning, then appearing at a North Carolina pro-abortion event in the afternoon. Once again, the VP seemed unable to stop herself from giggling despite the seriousness of the subject she was there to speak about:
One year later, the majority of Americans are with us, from so-called red states to blue states, from Kentucky to California. When this issue was on the ballot in the midterms, the people voted in favor of allowing women to have the choice about what happens to their body.
Reaction was swift. Radio host Jason Rantz:
Catholic priest Fr. Matthew Schneider clapped back at Harris’ claim that “the people voted in favor of allowing women to have the choice about what happens to their body”:
When asked about details, an overwhelming majority want abortion restrictions impossible under Roe & Casey, like banning late-term abortion. Also, even people who were pro-abortion admitted how specious the reasoning of Roe was—it never really was a constitutional right.
In her North Carolina appearance, meanwhile, Harris opined that the abortion issue is about “freedom”:
Freedom to make decisions about one’s own life, one’s own body. The freedom to be free from government interference when it comes to one’s private decisions. Decisions that are about heart and home.
The question they never answer is, if you believe in freedom for all, how can you justify taking away a baby’s freedom to live? She also said that she believes the majority of Americans believe that the government should not have a say in what women do with their bodies. Do you remember COVID, Madam Vice President, and your administration’s attempts to force federal workers to take experimental shots they didn’t want?
When you start your speech with giggles and then proceed to claim that the Constitution says something when it doesn’t, you know you’re not very good at your job.
