Harris Shades State Leaders on Repro Rights & Asks: Whose Side Are You Really On? 😲🚫👶
TL:DR; Veep Kamala Harris is shaking her head at state leaders who are limiting women’s repro rights. Yet, she’s vibing with faith in Americans to push back. 🤔💥
In her latest whirlwind visit to Iowa, VP Kamala Harris threw some major shade at state leaders. Their crime? Trying to trim down women’s reproductive rights after the Supreme Court decided to give Roe v. Wade the boot. But don’t lose hope, she reckons the American spirit isn’t gonna let this slide. 💪🔥
Quick question: 🧐 Why is it that some states seem to think they know better than women when it comes to their own bodies? Ms. Harris posed a similar query, commenting on the underlying message states are sending. It’s like they’re saying, “Hey ladies, you don’t know what’s good for you!” Umm, excuse you?
Now, here’s a heartbreaker: 😢 Harris shared a tale of a woman having a miscarriage and being turned away by a hospital all thanks to these snazzy new state abortion rules. She said, “She went to the emergency room while she was having a miscarriage, denied care. She went back, denied care. Only when she contracted sepsis did they give her care.” Like, WHAT?! Is this the real America we’re living in?
Alright, shifting gears a sec – anyone catch that Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds is pretty pumped about these restrictive laws? 🤨 She thinks they’re changing the “destructive culture of abortion.” Harris, though, is all like, “You sure about that, Kim?” She believes Americans have been voicing their disagreements at the ballot box and showing leaders the door.
BTW, if y’all are feeling some type of way about these reproductive health restrictions, Harris has a plan! ✨ She’s hoping that the protections once provided by the Supreme Court can make a glorious return. And she spilled some tea that if Congress gets its act together and puts those protections back, President Joe Biden is ready to ink his signature. 🖋️📜
In another plot twist: 🌀 Harris also had some words for Florida’s board of education and their…interesting take on Black history standards. She straight-up called their views “ridiculous.” 🙄 And, for everyone playing at home, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had his two cents, defending the instruction but also trying to keep some distance. 🤷
In the end, Harris had a simple request for the nation: let’s come together and not play games with people’s lives, especially when talking about things like the migrant crisis. 🌍🚶♂️ Humans aren’t chess pieces, folks!
The real question though: Is Harris’ optimism enough to spark change in the face of these challenges, or is America heading down a rabbit hole? 🐇 And who’s going to lead us out? Let’s talk! What do you think? 🎤⬇️
