High court ready to stop abortion as constitutional right, VP warns of government interference in private matters
One year after finding no flaws with the Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Vice President Kamala Harris is warning that the government will violate personal liberty if the US Supreme Court revokes the constitutional protection of abortion rights as expected.
“At its core, it’s about our future as a nation, whether we live in a country where the government can interfere in personal decisions.” Harris said in a meeting with abortionists and abortion lawyers via video conference on Thursday. “It’s about our future.”
The issue includes a Supreme Court decision revoking Rowe v. Wade, a landmark 1973 ruling that protected abortion as a constitutional right. A draft of the court’s 5-3 decision, which hit Rowe v. Wade and left the issue of abortion to the states to decide, was leaked to the media earlier this month. The rule is expected to be officially issued in late June or early July.

The vice president’s virtual meeting with abortion providers came on the same day as Oklahoma lawmakers passed a bill banning abortion. “Fertilization.” Governor Kevin Steet has promised to sign and enact any anti-abortion law that reaches his desk, as he did when he approved a bill last month that would make abortion a crime for abortionists.
“Think about it for a second from the moment of fertilization,” Harris said. “It’s offensive, and it’s the latest in a series of extreme laws across the country.” He added that such laws have been enacted “Punish and control women.”
Harris argued that the Supreme Court’s decision represents a threat not only to women, but to all Americans, because the original Rowe v. Wade ruling was based on an investigation that prohibiting abortion would violate the right to privacy.
“The right to privacy that forms the basis of Roe is the same right to privacy that protects the right to use contraception and the right to marry the person of your choice, including a person of the same sex.” He said. “Row overturning opens the door to restricting those rights.”
It would be a direct blow to the fundamental right to self-determination, survival and love without government intervention.
However, another landmark judgment in the case of an abortion – Planned Parenthood vs. Casey in 1992 – found that terminating a pregnancy is a unique act, as opposed to other privacy rights, because it involves consequences for others, including the loss of life. The 5-4 judgment in the Casey case upheld abortion as constitutionally protected, but it opened the door for states to impose restrictions unless they imposed a ban. “Unwanted burden” On people seeking abortion.

“Orange Harris has repeated the lie that contraception and the right to marriage would be threatened if Rock were to reverse,” he said. Said Reverend Frank PavonA Catholic priest and anti-abortion activist.
