Vice President Kamala Harris said on Meet The Press Sunday that the country is "suffering" because Roe V. Wade was overturned by what she called an "activist" court.
The comments were precipitated by this question from anchor Chuck Todd: “How much confidence do you have in the Supreme Court?”
After telling Todd she thought it was an activist court, she further explained, “It means that we had an established right for almost half a century, which is the right of women to make decisions about their own body as an extension of what we have decided to be, the privacy rights to which all people are entitled. And this court took that constitutional right away, and we are suffering as a nation because of it.”
“That causes me great concern about the integrity of the court overall," she went on. "Especially as someone who my life was inspired by people like Thurgood Marshall, and by the work on that court of Earl Warren to bring an unanimous court to pass Brown v. Board of Education.”
Harris may think that women are suffering under new, more restrictive abortion rules in some states, but has she given one thought to the children who will not suffer and will get to live because abortion is no longer an option for their mothers?
