Harris Says Overturning Roe Will Lead to Restrictions On Contraception, Marriage Rights

'Instead of relying on the courts to draw conclusions about what our rights are, why don’t we explicitly add them to the constitution as the founding fathers intended?'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Vice President Kamala Harris opined in a Twitter post, saying that if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, restrictions on contraception and marriage rights will not be far behind, The Daily Wire reported.

Harris posted the tweet ahead of the court’s impending case which could return the decision making power on abortion to the states.

“The right to privacy that forms the basis of Roe v. Wade also protects the right to use contraception and the right to marry the person you love,” Harris wrote.

“Overturning Roe opens the door to restricting those rights,” she added.

This tweet is one of many that the veep has posted regarding the issue, with some others calling the possible overturn “an extreme step backward” and “outrageous.”

“If Roe v. Wade is overturned, it will be an extreme step backward and a direct assault on the fundamental right to self-determination,” Harris wrote. “It represents a threat not just to women but to all Americans.”

Harris also made a public statement, claiming that Roe v. Wade is not only “maternal health care,” but also “protects the fundamental right to privacy.”

Roe ensures a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion. It. Also, at its root, protects the fundamental right to privacy,” Harris continued. “What is clear is that the opponents of Roe want to punish women and take away their rights to make decisions about their own bodies.

“Republican legislators in states across the country are weaponizing the use of the law against women.”
