Kamala Harris: 'The Real Issue Is Women Are Getting Pregnant Every Day in America'
'We need to act with a sense of haste about what is at play, what is at stake'
Vice President Kamala Harris said the “real issue” in America is that “women are getting pregnant every day.”
The VP said the right to abortion needs to be codified for “folks who are at risk” following the the Supreme Court decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
During an interview with “progressive political host” Brian Tyler Cohen, Harris said:
“There may be litigation [by putting Roe v. Wade into law]," she said.
"But we will be in a much better position than to not do that," she said.
"Listen, women are getting pregnant every day in America."
"This is a real issue,” Harris claimed.
“We need to act with a sense of haste about what is at play, what is at stake," she said.
"And codifying Roe will be an important moment in terms of putting back in place protections for the folks who are at risk, right now."
"Because of what the court did in Dobbs, just weeks ago,” she added.
Last month, the Supreme Court made a historic 5-4 opinion overturning Roe through its ruling on the Dobbs case.
The decision determined the right to abortion is not included in the Constitution, returning the issue of abortion laws and regulations to state legislatures.
Democrats are looking to make advocating for the killing of unborn Americans a campaign talking point .
That would win over constituents in the upcoming midterms.
However, a recent Rasmussen Reports poll showed that Republicans are actually gaining momentum on the generic ballot.
Before the ruling, a generic Republicans led the ballot by five points, but now, a month later, they lead by ten points.
