on Saturday


Here’s the thing about what they do and the cruelty of it: in some states there is no exception, not even for rape and incest. You’re telling a survivor of a crime of violence against their body, a violation of their body, that they don’t have the right to make a decision about what happens to their body next, Harris said. That’s immoral.

Harris made the comments during the Power Leadership and Influence of Black Women luncheon:

to event

where Senator Laphonza Butler


was honored. As she was

middle answer to

a question about abortion rights, Butler paused to introduce one of our greatest champions in this movement and one of my closest friends, when Harris came forward

on stage from the wings. from a stage wing.

The vice president has been a vocal force for the Biden administration on this issue

of abortion rights

since the Arizona Supreme Court on Tuesday reinstated an 1864 law, decades before Arizona became a state that banned abortions except when the mother’s life is in danger. Her comments Saturday reiterated what she said in Tucson on Friday and what is expected to be a major theme in her and President Biden’s re-election campaign.

There is no confusion about who is to blame. Former President Donald Trump hand-selected three members of the United States Supreme Court with the intention of them overturning Roe, and they did exactly what he intended, Harris said.

And now he’s walking around talking about, ‘Well, you know, the states can do whatever they want to do,'” she said


. Look what the states are doing. The states approve Trump’s abortion ban. So we’re not going to fall for the ‘okey-doke’. We’re not going to worry about what’s going on and who’s to blame.

The night before, Harris headlined a fundraiser at Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s Spanish revival


mansion in Beverly Hills. About $1.5 million was raised for the Biden Victory Fund at the event, which was attended by 30 people, including Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass.

When I was asked to host this event, I immediately agreed because I realized that if it was at my house, I could drink as much as I wanted, MacFarlane said. I’m not going to get a DUI on the way to bed.

He then turned to Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, who was present.

Anyway, now I wanted to get everything right for this introduction. So I practiced how to say your name. Is it Doug? MacFarlane said this, a reference to some Republicans’ refusal to correctly pronounce Harris’ first name.

Harris and Emhoff are expected to spend Sunday at their home in Brentwood before the vice president leaves for Nevada on Monday.
