VP Harris: US Has History of Govt Claiming ‘Ownership Over Human Bodies’

Vice President Kamala Harris slammed the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, characterizing it as “problematic on so many levels.”

While making an appearance at the Essence Festival of Culture in New Orleans, Harris said, “We have to recognize we’re a nation that was founded on certain principles that are grounded in the concept of freedom and liberty. We also know that we’ve had a history in this country of government trying to claim ownership over human bodies.”

Harris added, “We had supposedly evolved from that time and that way of thinking. So this is very problematic on so many levels.”

“The Supreme Court, with the Dobbs decision, for the first time in the history of our nation took a constitutional right that had been recognized and took it from the women of America — took a constitutional right,” said Harris.

The U.S. Constitution doesn’t contain any specific references to “abortion.” However, Harris might have been alluding to “protection of privacy” with the above quote.

Regarding the Dobbs ruling, Harris labeled it “outrageous,” and then called on the masses to make their voices heard in the coming weeks.

“This is a serious matter,” Harris said. “It requires all of us to speak up, speak out and to be active.”

  1. She’s right. Almost a million children and young adults are kidnapped in the US yearly. Guess by whom? Exactly what President Trump is currently taking of.

  2. These leftist double-talking murderers. From one side they say a women (who could have used birth control) has the right to kill her unborn child “because its her right.” yet an unwell person in the hospital or in hospice will have the plug puled by a doctor no questions asked unless you signed a waver. And as we see what happened in England to that young girl the judge decided her fate. Where were her rights?

  3. “US Has History of Govt Claiming ‘Ownership Over Human Bodies’ ”
    While it is true that Left-wing elected officials in the US government have a history of “claiming ownership over human bodies” – a history of dictating what we must or mustn’t do – this isn’t the case with Conservative legislators. Even with regards to babies, it is the Libs who want to claim ownership over the babies, and dictate whether these babies shall live or die.

    • And yet, many of the commenters here have hung on to every word the UNELECTED Fauci and Walensky we’re spewing forth. Dumb stupid gullible obedient sheeple.

  4. Kamala is not just an ignoramus. She’s malicious. She is working public opinion to push the “ownership of our own bodies”, while callously addressing the real issue. Yes, there was a SCOTUS decision that considered the right to an abortion something that was constitutional. But today’s scholars made their point clearly: This does not exist inthe Constitution. If Congress were to legislate this, fine. But meanwhgile, it does not exist. So as a health issue, this reverts back to states. So the voters, not the liberal moral-free Democrats, will decide.

    The issue that this machsheifoh ignores is the fact that this mother seeking to abort had a choice that she made. She expects taxpayers to compensate for her “oops”. And no one ever asked the baby if he/she wished to forfeit its right to healthy live birth. So who is taking away whose rights? Dems? I think so. Remember in November.

  5. When will Mrs. Emhoff show us her report she’s been working so hard on, to the American people, on the root cause of illegal migration???
