NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Vice President Kamala Harris will in practice meet with abortion providers in the White House on Thursday morning, as the Supreme Court is considering an important abortion case following a statement issued by Roe v. Wade (1973) that was leaked earlier this month.

Harris will talk to abortion providers over livestream video at an Eastern event at 2pm in the White House on Thursday, a White House official told Fox News. The Vice President will give introductory speeches, talk to suppliers and engage with advocates for election in the audience.

Harris will hear stories from abortion providers working in states with the strictest abortion restrictions. “She will thank them for fighting to protect reproductive health care, despite personal risk, and promise that the administration will defend women’s access to abortion,” the official told Fox News.

Harris, a longtime advocate for abortion rights, met with former abortion providers in September 2021 to discuss the effects of the Texas SB 8. As California’s Attorney General, she wrote several amicus calendars to defend access to abortion.

Vice President reacted strongly when Supreme Court Justice John Roberts confirmed that Attorney General Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in the Dobbs case that knocked Roe down was genuine. Although the draft goes back to February, and it does not represent the court’s current or final opinion, Harris declared that “the rights of all Americans are at stake.”

“Gypsy guarantees a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion, “Harris said.” It also fundamentally protects the fundamental right to privacy. What is clear is that opponents of Gypsy wants to punish women and deprive them of their rights to make decisions about their own bodies. Republican lawmakers in states across the country are arming the use of the law against women. “

The vice president claimed that “if the right to privacy is weakened, every person can face a future where the government can potentially interfere in the personal decisions you make about your life. This is the time to fight for women and for our country with everything we have.”

In the midst of protests at the court and in the judges’ homes, the authorities increased security, put up a fence around the court and assigned security details to the judges.

In December 2021, Harris predicted that “women will die” if Roe is overthrown.

Melanie Israela policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation’s DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society, blamed Harris for pitting women against their children.

“We should not put women against their children – we should protect them both,” Israel told Fox News. “Abortion is not safe. It poses significant risks to women and ends the lives of hundreds of thousands of unborn children in America every year.”

Lila Rose, founder and CEO of Live Action, told Fox News that Harris’ “harsh disregard for children and their right to be born is a disgrace.”

“The lives of children are as valuable as the lives of adults, and it should be the most urgent duty of every politician to ensure that our laws protect the most vulnerable,” she said. “Instead, Harris wants the law to sanction the greatest human rights violations and massacres of children our nation has ever seen.”

States with democratic legislatures have enacted laws codifying abortion in case Roe should be overthrown. Governor Jared Polis, D-Colo., signed a law create a “fundamental right” to abortion and deny all rights to the unborn. In 2019, Governor Andrew Cuomo, DN.Y., signed a law codifying abortion rights and explicitly delete protection against unborn children. Connecticut’s Legislature has adopted a bill aims to combat abortion restrictions in other states.

At the same time, states with Republican lawmakers have enacted abortion laws, with Texas and Idaho enacting laws that allow private citizens to file civil lawsuits against individuals who assist or remedy abortions after a fetus is detected, at about 6 weeks’ gestation.

While many polls suggest that Americans support Roe, in-depth opinion polls reveal a more complicated picture. On the question of their opinion on abortion during specific periods of pregnancy and other situations, 71% of Americans say they support limiting abortion to the first three months of pregnancy (22%), or in other limited circumstances such as rape and incest (28%), to save the mother’s life (9%) or not at all (12%). Only 17% of Americans said that abortion should be available during an entire pregnancy and 12% said that it should be limited to the first six months.
