Kamala Harris Vows Revenge on States with History of Pro-Life Laws

Sen. Kamala Harris, a Democratic presidential candidate, is in a mad dash to be the most progressive contestant in the 2020 election.
Unfortunately, she’s doing a pretty good job.
Harris unveiled a new policy relating to abortion access at a South Carolina town hall that MSNBC hosted Tuesday night. If elected president, Harris promises to strong-arm states working to pass legislation restricting Roe vs. Wade and abortion rights, saying the statewide regulations on pregnancy termination should first be approved by her own Justice Department.
“Here’s the thing, there are states that keep passing these laws,” Harris said.

“So, when elected, I’m going to put in place and require that states that have a history of passing legislation that is designed to prevent or limit a woman’s access to reproductive health care, those laws have to come before my Department of Justice for a review,” she said.
This policy comes weeks after Alabama signed what has been considered one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the U.S., making abortion illegal in almost every way, shape and form.
“I think it’s very clear that – and it has not changed – that women’s ability to have access to reproductive health is under attack in America,” Harris stated during the town hall.
Harris also introduced her plan to restrict the rights of states on Twitter, saying, “A woman’s constitutional right to an abortion is under attack. Today I announced a plan as president to block these dangerous and deadly state laws before they take effect.” 
However, her announcement received an influx of furious replies, as Harris’ use of the word “deadly” stood out to readers.
“To block these dangerous and DEADLY laws?? These laws would protect these DEAD babies millions of them being murdered every year,” one individual tweeted in response.
“Your very principle contradicts itself.”

Harris was also asked where she, if elected, would have the authority to create and enforce such a policy.
“Flipping through my copy of the constitution looking for that right or amendment. Can you point me to it?” one Twitter user wrote.

The legal hurdles that would need to be overcome to make her proposed restrictions a reality seems next to impossible.

Then again, maybe Harris is just another in a long line of politicians making promises they can’t keep.
