Vice President Harris to do the heavy lifting on the abortion issue in the 2024 election

Published on

The headline, “Vice President Harris announces nationwide events focused on abortion,” suggests that Kamala Harris will take a strong stance against those who oppose abortion rights.

In a recent article, Chris Megerian of the Associated Press discussed the upcoming “Fight for Reproductive Freedoms” tour, which is scheduled to commence in Wisconsin on January 22, 2024. This date marks the 51st anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, which was overturned by the Dobbs ruling in 2022.

Vice President Kamala Harris is redoubling her focus on abortion rights as the election year begins, planning a series of events across the country as Democrats try to rally voters to give President Joe Biden a second term and regain full control of Congress.

So what does her official White House statement say? Among other things…

“Extremists across our country continue to wage an all-out assault on hard-won, hard-fought freedoms as they push their radical policies – from banning abortion in all 50 states and criminalising doctors to forcing women to travel out of state to get the care they need,” said Vice President Harris. “I will continue to fight for our fundamental freedoms while bringing together those across America who agree that every woman should have the right to make decisions about her own body – not the government.”

In particular, how might this be achieved? In essence, the answer is as follows.

During the Vice President’s Reproductive Freedom Tour, she will host events that highlight the harm caused by these abortion bans and share the stories of those who have been affected. Vice President Harris will also hold extremists accountable for proposing a national abortion ban, call on Congress to restore the protections of Roe, and outline steps the Administration is taking to protect access to health care. She will also urge attendees to use their voices and stay engaged in the fight for fundamental freedoms.

Megerian posits that vice presidents are seldom decisive in election campaigns. However, Harris is poised to play an important role next year. The rationale behind this assertion is unclear. This is due to the fact that Biden is of an advanced age, with the possibility of reaching the age of 86 at the end of his second term.

Furthermore, the issue was a focal point of her recent college tour, during which she visited campuses to engage in discourse with students.

What can be said in response to this situation? To begin with, appointing this vice president to any position is an act of optimism overriding practical experience. Even when addressing the most receptive audiences, which is what the tour will consist of, she is, at best, somewhat inept.

One might inquire as to the rationale behind initiating the project in Wisconsin. The issue is currently a matter of contention in the context of the 2024 election. In the 2020 election, Biden received 4,987,888 votes, while Trump received 4,974,888. The difference between the two candidates was less than 13,000 votes.

Megerian and Brett Samuels of The Hill emphasize that Harris will serve as the primary liaison on abortion issues, a role that Democrats believe will be advantageous for them.

A determination will be made in due course.
