Harris Claims Reproductive Rights at Risk in Election, Trump Stands by States’ Rights

Vice President Kamala Harris is sounding the alarm yet again, claiming that “everything is at stake” with reproductive health rights in the November election. Predictably, the Biden campaign is ramping up its focus on contrasting the positions of Democratic President Joe Biden and Republican Donald Trump ahead of their upcoming debate. The notion is that abortion rights could be the Democrats’ Hail Mary in what everyone expects to be a close general election.

In what must be an unparalleled display of political theater, the Biden camp decided to hold over 50 events in battleground states to mark the second anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision, which rightly overturned the federal legal right to an abortion. The Democrats are attempting to remind voters that this landmark decision came from a Supreme Court with three conservative justices nominated during Trump’s presidency—as if that’s supposed to be a bad thing.

Harris, performing her usual fear-mongering, stated that the right to make decisions about one’s body being taken away portends the loss of other freedoms. This grand statement came during an MSNBC interview with Hadley Duvall, an abortion rights advocate with a tragic background story carefully chosen to pull at heartstrings. Meanwhile, the Biden campaign is banking on abortion rights being a magical rallying cry that will somehow get them across the finish line.

On the other side, Trump has the conservative base nodding approvingly for his role in Dobbs, while carefully navigating the line on a national abortion ban. True to form, Trump has stated that he believes the issue should be left to the states, a stance that showcases his commitment to federalism rather than dictating one-size-fits-all solutions from Washington. Even with this balanced approach, Trump’s administration still did what many in the religious right considered an amazing job.

Biden is retreating to Camp David for private debate prep while Trump will be conducting informal meetings at his Florida estate. It’s almost laughable how Biden needs a secluded retreat for this, while Trump is running his campaign like a well-oiled machine, even on home turf.

As expected, other Democratic figureheads are hitting the campaign trail with stories intended to serve as emotional appeals rather than grounded policy discussions. Take Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Amanda Zurawski’s trip to Wisconsin; the latter was denied an abortion after being told her baby would not survive, only receiving one after developing a life-threatening infection. This tactic seems aimed at painting worst-case scenarios as the norm rather than the exception.

In the end, Kamala Harris and her ilk might want to consider that crying wolf about every election won’t necessarily alarm the American public into submission. The real issue at stake here isn’t just reproductive rights; it’s the ongoing battle for the soul of America and whether it will abide by conservative principles or succumb to liberal overreach.
