Vice President Harris and Sheryl Lee Ralph Address “ABORTION” Rights at Montgomery County Gathering

Vice President Kamala Harris discussed abortion access and women’s healthcare during a campaign rally at Salus University in Montgomery County on Wednesday. The occasion began with cheers and swiftly transitioned into a conversation between friends as Harris spoke with actress Sheryl Lee Ralph.

“You go to clinics like this because you need healthcare,” explained Ralph, who is married to Pennsylvania state Sen. Vincent Hughes.

“That’s right,” Harris said, as the audience cheered.

The event was titled the “Conversation on Reproductive Freedom.” Harris cautioned that if Republican nominee Donald Trump is elected again, abortion restrictions in more than a dozen states might extend nationwide and that the two-year-old reversal of Roe v. Wade could hurt more women.

“I was recently in Florida,” Harris explained. “Six-week ban, which makes very clear, by the way, that these very important so-called leaders are not very clear about how a woman’s body works since most women don’t even know they’re pregnant at six weeks.”

Laura Rivera, the supervisor of East Norriton Township, was moved by the exchange. She remembered the words Harris had shared with a Civil Rights legend. “I love the quote from Coretta Scott King, ‘This is a fight that has to be fought in every generation,’ civil rights for all,” Rivera stated. “This isn’t about abortion. “This is about women’s healthcare.”

There was a Republican reaction before the discussion began. Karoline Leavitt, the national publicity secretary of the Trump campaign, wrote:

“President Trump has long supported states’ freedom to decide on abortion. Joe Biden and the Democrats are fundamentally out of touch with the majority of Americans when it comes to abortion.”

Tom Stevens of the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia likewise expressed his support for Trump’s approach to abortion regulations.

“That’s the Constitution. States are in control. “Roe v. Wade overturned and returned things to the states, which we welcome,” he remarked.

Harris and Biden have made reproductive rights a priority in their campaigns, and the vice president expressed optimism about young people and their willingness to vote for increased reproductive healthcare access. “This generation of young leaders, when they start voting in bigger numbers, I predict a sea change,” Harris stated.

Harris returned to Washington, D.C., where she was scheduled to headline a gala Wednesday night, campaigning for increased reproductive rights.
