Kamala Compares Banning Abortion to Slavery
Vice President Kamala Harris compared restrictions on abortion to America’s history of chattel slavery during a speech on Monday at the NAACP’s national convention.
"We know, NAACP, that our country has a history of claiming ownership over human bodies," Harris said after criticizing the Supreme Court's June ruling overturning Roe v. Wade. "And today, extremist so-called leaders are criminalizing doctors and punishing women for making health care decisions for themselves."
Harris’s remarks were met with faint applause.
