Pence To Harris: “How Dare You?”
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1980: World Health Organization announces smallpox has been eradicated.
Former Vice President Mike Pence rebuked Vice President Kamala Harris over her stance on abortion as the Supreme Court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“Those Republicans leaders who are trying to weaponize the use of the law against women — how dare they?” Harris said at an EMILY’s List conference. “How dare they tell a woman what she can do and cannot do with her own body? How dare they? How dare they try to stop her from determining her own future? How dare they try to deny women their rights and their freedoms?”
Pence responded to Harris’s remarks while speaking at an event for the Carolina Pregnancy Center, saying “62 million unborn boys and girls ended in abortion” since Roe v. Wade.
“Since 1973, generations of mothers enduring heartbreaking and loss that can last a lifetime. Madame Vice President, how dare you?” Pence asked.
“My hope, and frankly my prayer, is that those five justices on the Supreme Court have the courage of their convictions and will give us a fresh start on life in America,” Pence said.
