Vice President Kamala Harris raised eyebrows earlier this week when she claimed that keeping abortion legal is important — for children.
Harris has been traveling throughout the country to speak in favor of abortion, calling it “one of the most critical issues facing our country.” On Monday, she spoke in Indianapolis after lawmakers there called a special session to consider a bill that would restrict abortion. During her speech, she mentioned, “what this issue means to real people, including children.”
Like many other abortion advocates, Harris has used the horrifying rape of a 10-year-old girl in Ohio as justification that abortion needs to remain legal in the United States. But while many have used this tragedy as a rallying cry in the wake of the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade, few people are talking about what really needs to be done: protecting children from pedophiles. Abortion is a violent act and carries significant risks and consequences, even for rape survivors. Instead of championing abortion for young girls who have suffered unspeakable crimes, abortion activists should focus on protecting children from predators.
Harris’s claim that children need abortion is also ironic, considering that abortion has killed over 63 million children before birth in the United States.
