(Abdul–Rahman Oladimeji Bello, Headline USA) Vice President Kamala Harris appeared at an abortion rally in Los Angeles on Saturday, where she claimed that pro-life activists are a threat to America’s democracy.
The vice president’s dual gaslighting of abortion and democracy took place on the heels of the Supreme Court issuing an administrative stay regarding mifepristone, a drug used for abortions, the Daily Wire reported.
At the rally, Harris urged the crowd to “stand up and fight” as she described the situation as a “critical moment” in America’s history.
“When you attack the rights of women in America, you are attacking America,” Harris said to the rallygoers. “We have seen attacks on voting rights, attacks on fundamental rights to love and marry the people that you love, attacks on the ability of people to be themselves and be proud of who they are.”
The vice president warned of pro-life activists attacking “fundamental rights,” claiming that trying to save the lives of unborn babies is an attack on America. Harris also criticized the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling, saying the justices “took a constitutional right that has been recognized from the people of America.”
“I fundamentally believe that you can gauge the strength of a democracy based on the strength of women in that democracy,” Harris said.
Pro-abortion activists planned rallies for the weekend to support access to the mifepristone, the Daily Wire reported. Some of the restrictions imposed by Texas Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk on the abortion drug should have gone into effect. However, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito granted a five-day pause on Friday after an intervention by the Justice Department.
“Simply put, FDA built on its already-suspect 2000 Approval by removing even more restrictions related to chemical abortion drugs that were present during the final phase of the investigation,” Kacsmaryk said in his ruling. “And it did so by relying on studies that included the very conditions FDA refused to adopt.”
However, U.S. District Judge Thomas Rice issued an opposing ruling, saying that the FDA had to allow the drug in 17 Democrat-led states who brought a lawsuit.
The White House declared last week it would continue to fight for killing unborn babies, with press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre vowing, “We are going to continue to fight in the courts, we believe the law is on our side, and we will prevail.”
