Kamala Harris stopped in Massachusetts on Thursday to trash pro-life Americans as “extremists” and promote taxpayer-funded abortion on demand as part of her state pro-abortion tour.
Rather than trying to find common ground by supporting abortion limits that most Americans agree on, such as bans on late-term and taxpayer-funded abortions, Harris and the Biden administration have been drumming up division and pushing extreme pro-abortion policies that even many Democrat voters oppose.
Spectrum News 1 reports the Democrat vice president met with lawmakers, including pro-abortion Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, for a roundtable discussion about abortion in Boston.
Harris criticized the U.S. Supreme Court for causing a “health care crisis” by overturning Roe v. Wade in June and returning the power to regulate abortions to the states.
Now, 14 states are enforcing laws that limit or ban abortions, saving an estimated 150,000 unborn babies’ lives, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute.
Harris and President Joe Biden want to take America back to 1973 when Roe forced states to legalize abortions for any reason up to viability and allowed states to legalize abortion on demand up to birth. They have been urging Congress to pass legislation that also would force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions nationwide, allow sex-selection abortions, and eliminate parental consent and informed consent laws.
Polls consistently find that Americans support parental consent for minors, oppose taxpayer funding for abortions and support legal protections for unborn babies, especially after the first trimester.
Yet, Harris described pro-life Americans as the “extremists” for supporting laws that protect unborn babies from violence, according to the news outlet.
“This moment requires us to see there are extremist, so-called leaders who believe that the way forward is to restrict rights,” she said.
“This is simply about saying the government should not be making the decision for that person,” Harris continued.
However, the government does prohibit people from making many decisions when those decisions hurt other people. Some choices are wrong, and killing an unborn baby in an abortion is one of them. Since 1973, more than 63 million unborn babies have been aborted in the U.S. Each was a unique, irreplaceable living human being who almost certainly had a heartbeat.
In recent weeks, Harris has made abortion on demand a key focus of her work, meeting with pro-abortion movement leaders and politicians and traveling to support pro-abortion candidates in key swing states.
Speaking in Indiana last week, she claimed that keeping abortion on demand legal is “one of the most critical issues facing our country” right now, according to Townhall.
However, many Americans disagree. A 2022 Marist poll found that just 36 percent of Americans believe abortions should be legal without any restrictions. Additionally, 73 percent oppose using tax dollars to fund abortions. Both are positions supported by the Biden administration.
A new national poll by OnMessage and Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America also found that 70 percent of voters oppose abortion without restrictions, and 63 percent oppose legislation that would overturn nearly all state bans on abortion, even limits on late-terms abortion.
