In last Tuesday’s MSNBC special “One Year Post Roe,” Kamala Harris, the Vice President, expressed her anger and extreme sadness about Roe v. Wade being overturned by the Supreme Court.
Harris mentioned that she was inspired to become a lawyer by people like Thurgood Marshall and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She expressed shock at the recent rollback of liberties that had once been recognized by the highest court in the land. Harris expressed anticipation of a possible event. When the draft of the decision had been leaked without authorization, Harris said she talked to her husband, Doug, because he had been the only person she felt comfortable expressing her angry thoughts.
In an interview with Teen Vogue, Harris urged young voters to support the Democrat platform of abortion-on-demand.
According to the outlet, Harris granted an interview for the Dobbs decision anniversary to emphasize that she believes Teen Vogue readers are leaders.
Harris talked to the outlet on the phone following her speech in North Carolina. During the speech, she expressed her disappointment about the end of Roe v. Wade and referred to pro-life Republicans as “extremists.”
In the interview, Harris stated that the teen magazine readers were leaders. Harris expressed her reliance on the audience’s voice and perspective, emphasizing its significance to the country’s future. Harris said that one way to express your voice is through organizing, voting, and reminding one another that they’re the leaders who can help guide the direction of the country.
Harris highlighted to the teenage audience that young voters hold the ability to alter the Congress’ composition, which could result in Democrats passing a federal law that guarantees access to abortion. During the 2022 midterms, the vice president highlighted pro-abortion victories in states such as California and Kansas that she believes were propelled by young voters.
Harris urged Teen Vogue’s young readers to discuss the importance of voting with their friends and to utilize their social media platforms to advocate for abortion.
