VP Harris to lead Biden Administration’s all-out campaign to promote abortion

I admit I’m biased, but the contrast between the tens of thousands of mostly young people engaged in the 51st annual March for Life on Friday and what came out of the pro-abortion-to-the-hilt Biden administration the last few days is stunning.

Elizabeth Dias’s story is headlined, “Reporting from the National Mall in Washington,” which is supposed to suggest the New York Times reporter has her ear to the ground.

It’s fine, if she wishes to right “Abortion Opponents March in Washington, With Obstacles Ahead,” for after all it’s true that we do have “obstacles.”

When haven’t we?

The difference is the Roe v. Wade boulder has been rolled away. We should never forget that in our hand-to-hand combat with the forces of death.

Meanwhile Pro-abortion President Joe Biden and his every bit as pro-abortion Vice President Kamala Harris are gearing up for a “Reproductive Rights” tour. Harris is in Wisconsin today while Biden brings together his task force on reproductive health care in Washington.

Harris’s choice was calculated. “Wisconsin is crucial to Mr. Biden’s re-election prospects — he won there by about 20,600 votes in 2020 — and recent polling suggests a close race in 2024,” The New York Times’s Katie Rogers reports.

Harris will tour pro-abortion states this spring. According to Rogers, “Ms. Harris has become the administration’s most vocal defender of abortion rights.”

Indeed, The Hill elevated her status still further. “Harris takes center stage in 2024 abortion fight,” blares a story that ran yesterday.

Vice President Harris has cemented herself as the Biden administration’s foremost messenger on abortion rights, the issue that the White House hopes will define the 2024 election cycle. 

After an uneven first 18 months in office, where Harris faced criticism over her ability to handle complex and intractable matters including migration and voting rights, the vice president has planted her flag in the fight over reproductive rights. …

“As a leader, she uniquely was able to meet the moment when Roe v. Wade was overturned, and she so galvanized the anger and fear people were feeling when the news came down that Roe was overturned,” said Karen Finney, a veteran Democratic strategist. 

Tomorrow is the New Hampshire primary and “Ms. Harris will join Mr. Biden at a rally for abortion rights in Virginia, where Democrats recently took control of the legislature and have proposed to enshrine abortion protections in the state constitution,” Rogers reported. “Jill Biden, the first lady, and Doug Emhoff, Ms. Harris’s husband, are also scheduled to attend.”

More tomorrow.
