Vice President Kamala Harris has once again made headlines for saying there is no conflict between individual religious beliefs and support for abortion rights. It comes amid reports that cite leaked documents to say the Supreme Court was set to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, which could curtail abortion rights across the country. Harris, a Baptist from a multi-denominational family, said decisions about abortion should be made by the individual and “not by the government”.
Harris said: “For those of us who have faith, I think we agree, many of us, that there is nothing in this matter that will force anyone to give up. his faith or to change his faith. It’s simply saying that the government should not have the ability to decide what an individual does with his own body — let him make that decision with his pastor or his rabbi , or whomever she consults. But it shouldn’t be the government that makes that decision. The Vice President’s mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris, was a Hindu immigrant from India. Gopalan married Jamaican-American economist Donald Harris and Kamala grew up in a Baptist church in Oakland, California.

Harris’s husband, Doug Emhoff, is Jewish, making him the first Jewish spouse of a vice president. Additionally, the Vice President has never been shy about going to church regularly and being a practicing Christian. Previously, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly said something along the same lines. Pelosi said: “Everything I agree with the Pope on is not necessarily what public policy should be in the United States, because people make their own judgments, honor their own responsibilities, meet the needs their family. Let me say this. A woman has the right to choose to live up to her responsibility. It’s up to her, her doctor, her family, her husband, her significant other and to his God. But after all the support, some people didn’t take the vice president’s comment lightly.

Internet reacts to Kamala Harris’ comments on abortion rights
In the coming weeks, the Supreme Court is expected to issue a landmark decision that could hand over abortion regulation to the states. However, the leak of the project resulted in a huge backlash as he voted to cancel the landmark Roe vs. Wade decision revealed by Politico. Now people are wondering if Harris knows anything about abortion. One user said: “It just shows that she knows absolutely nothing about anything….” Another user said, “When did she get a degree in theology?”
One user said: “Killing people shows a hatred of others, abortion is child sacrifice, you have to hate those kids to think they’re ‘better dead’, you could be, they don’t are not. Affirm life and personal responsibility.” Another user wrote, “If faith is the killing of innocent babies, abortion should work for Kamala Harris.” One user tweeted, “Until God changes the ‘Thou shalt not kill’ commandment, I will always consider it wrong to kill innocent human lives.” Another user said, “KH must study world religions because it lacks necessary information…or fails to change the narrative badly…”
It just shows that she knows absolutely nothing about anything….

Until God changes the “Thou shalt not kill” commandment, I will always consider it wrong to kill an innocent human life.
