Kamala’s Latest Word Salad: No Protection For Viable Unborn Babies

Vice President Kamala Harris — who is known for rambling on in what her conservative critics have deemed “word salads” — recently claimed that people don’t have to “abandon their faith or deeply held beliefs to agree” that a woman has the right to kill her unborn child even after that child is considered viable and can be delivered safely.

Harris made the comments during an interview with Milwaukee’s TMJ4 News on Thursday, claiming that even in the case of a viable unborn baby, “the government should not be telling women what to do with their bodies.”

TMJ4 Chief Political Reporter Charles Benson began the discussion by stating: “Wisconsin has an 1849 abortion ban law in place after the Supreme Court decision was reached on Roe v. Wade. Prior to that, it was a 20-week ban on abortion. So, my question for you is, what is your position on protecting reproductive rights while those and others are saying they want some protection as well for fetus viability?”

Harris responded by rambling on about women being able to decide what to do with “their bodies” — ignoring the fact that the unborn child is its own separate body, and Benson’s question was about viable babies, who can be safely delivered at that time rather than killed. She also falsely claimed that the Supreme Court “took a constitutional right” away from American women by overturning Roe, when the court actually just ruled that the fictitious right found in Roe never existed to begin with.

“Let’s start with this: And I think it’s very important for us to all agree that one does not have to abandon their faith or deeply held beliefs to agree the government should not be telling women what to do with their body,” Harris claimed. “She should be able to make that decision, if she chooses, with her pastor, her priest, her rabbi, whomever. But the government should not be telling women what to do with their bodies.”

“And so, when we look at this issue and we know that the highest court in our land just took a constitutional right that had been recognized from the women of America, from the people of America, I think we all have to step up and say that we need to have leaders lead by having some level of compassion and understanding that they should trust women to make decisions that are in their best interest and that they, women, are in the best position to know what is in their own best interest,” she continued. “It’s that simple.”

“No laws?” Benson pressed.

While Harris didn’t outright respond in the affirmative, her answer was essentially a “yes” — as she refused to outline any restrictions whatsoever on abortion, and has repeatedly advocated for abortion up until the point of birth.

“It’s not about saying that — it is about saying that we need to, first of all, codify and put back into place the protections of Roe v. Wade,” the vice president replied. “That is what we are fighting for. And when Congress does that, the president will sign it.”
