On Roe v. Wade anniversary, Harris takes abortion fight to Wisconsin
Vice President Kamala Harris marked the 49th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision by advocating for reproductive rights in Wisconsin. Harris went to Wisconsin to rally against recent legislative attempts to limit abortion access, in a state that is politically significant.
Without mentioning specifics, this issue has become prominently important due to the Supreme Court's consideration of a case that could potentially strike down or severely limit the landmark 1973 decision that established a legal right to an abortion in the United States.
Harris spoke in support of the Women's Health Protection Act, a bill introduced by Congress to create federal safeguards against state restrictions on abortion. She called reproductive rights essential to women's health and economic security, and emphasized the importance of protecting these rights nationwide.
