Vice President Kamala Harris set aside a fundamental right when she cited the Declaration of Independence on Sunday to promote abortion.
On the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the now-overturned landmark Supreme Court case that established federal abortion rights, Harris gave a speech in Florida in which he attacked Gov. Ron DeSantis and Republican lawmakers from the Sunshine State, in which are called “extremists”, to protect the rights of unborn children.
At the beginning of his speech, Harris cited the Declaration of Independence, but omitted the right to “life.”
“We are here together because we collectively believe and know that America is a promise. America is a promise. It is a promise of freedom and liberty, not for some, but for all,” Harris said.
“A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence that we are all endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” he continued.

In fact, the opening of the Declaration of Independence declares:
We consider these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
Later in his speech, Harris suggested that Americans cannot “be truly free” without legalized abortion. Never mind the Constitution and its Bill of Rights.
In addition, Harris used his speech to demand that Congress pass legislation codifying “reproductive rights” (ie, abortion), conflating “reproductive rights” with “liberty and liberty.” Harris promised that President Joe Biden would immediately sign any such legislation.
However, this is unlikely to happen because Republicans now control the majority in the House.
Also on Sunday, Biden signed a presidential memorandum to protect national access to abortion drugs. The memorandum does not usurp states that have banned such drugs, but directs the government to explore their protection.
