NO FREEDOM TO MURDER THE UNBORN AND/OR THE BORN GRANTED BY GOD AND/OR THE CONSTITUTION:
Harris Avoids Mentioning the words God & Abortion At Apostate 'Faith Leaders' Meeting
Rarely at a loss for words, at a June 6 “Roundtable Discussion” on what Kamala Harris and her PR-team call “Reproductive Healthcare,” and with people the VP labels ”Faith Leaders,” Harris found it impossible, or prohibitively inconvenient, to mention the words “God” and “abortion.”

Kamala Harris held another meeting with abortion activists Tuesday to discuss ways to prepare for the potential end of Roe v. Wade this summer.
Harris welcomed legal and technology experts who support abortion to a roundtable meeting, signaling the Biden administration’s continued commitment to legalized abortion on demand. It is her third meeting with abortion activists since news broke in May about a leaked draft ruling showing the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe and allowing states to protect unborn babies from abortion again.
“I think we all believe and know that our nation was founded on certain principles that we hold dear: principles of freedom, liberty, and self-determination,” Harris said in her opening statement. “And I do believe that all of those principles are at stake when we look at the leaked draft opinion about what this decision may end up being.”
A White House spokesperson told The Hill that the focus of the meeting was the practical impact of overturning Roe on issues like privacy, contraception, and in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Those invited to attend included New York University School of Law professors Peggy Cooper Davis and Melissa Murray, Harvard Law School professor Glenn Cohen, UC Irvine School of Law professor Michele Bratcher Goodwin, University of Michigan Law School professor Leah Litman, leaders with the Brennan Center for Justice, and Ms. Magazine writer Jennifer Weiss-Wolf, according to the report.
A White House official told CNN that the Biden administration wants to build a strong coalition of abortion supporters to work together in response to the likely ruling.

“What’s important to keep in mind here is that some of the vice president’s goals really have been around ensuring that people in this country have an understanding of what is at stake here,” the official said. “And that does take some work in terms of building out who is the coalition of people that are affected by this, that are interested in having their voices be heard.”
These meetings also appear to be an attempt to draw positive attention to Harris, who is widely unpopular with Americans. According to CNN, “Tuesday’s event, an official told CNN, will draw on Harris’ ability to bring people from wide-ranging backgrounds together to work on specific issues.”
Last week, Harris held a meeting with pro-abortion religious leaders and, in mid-May, with abortion workers to talk about ways to keep abortions legal and available if the Supreme Court allows states to protect unborn babies from abortion again.
Harris said the Biden administration supports “unfettered” abortion – meaning the killing of unborn babies for any reason up to birth, paid for by taxpayers. She also made the baseless claim that overturning Roe would lead to banning same-sex marriage and contraception in the near future.
To Harris, unborn babies’ lives do not matter as much as “self-determination.” Harris also has claimed that aborting an unborn baby is about the “right to live and love.”
Harris’s position on abortion is radical and out of touch with most Americans. A former U.S. senator, she co-sponsored a bill that would have forced states to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions for basically any reason up to birth, even if Roe is overturned, and forced taxpayers to pay for them.
Since Roe in 1973, more than 63 million unborn babies and hundreds of mothers have died in supposedly “safe, legal” abortions.
It appears the Supreme Court likely will overturn Roe this summer after a leaked draft shows the justices ruling against the 1973 decision in the Mississippi case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. If that happens, states will be allowed to protect unborn babies again, and experts predict as many as 26 will do so. This would result in hundreds of thousands of unborn babies being saved from abortions every year.
Today, Vice President Kamala Harris held a roundtable in Los Angeles, California with faith leaders to discuss some of the most urgent challenges facing our communities, including protecting reproductive rights and addressing the epidemic of hate that is gripping our nation.
Attendees discussed the importance of protecting access to reproductive health care, preserving the right to self-determination for individuals and families, and working together to chart the path forward. The Vice President affirmed the key role faith leaders play in bringing people together to move our country in the direction of justice, and she highlighted the constitutional rights affirmed in Roe, including the right to privacy, which protects the right to use contraception, and the freedom to marry the person you love.
Participants underscored the importance of ensuring that health care decisions are made by women without government interference, and the need to work together as a coalition to safeguard this right. The Vice President raised that the Louisiana legislature passed a bill that would ban abortion even in cases of rape and incest, saying the bill illustrates that there is a clear and imminent threat to the shared principle of allowing women to make decisions about their own bodies.
During the conversation, the Vice President also raised the issue of gun violence that has been plaguing our nation. The Vice President thanked the faith leaders for the important role they play in working toward healing, hope, and unity in their congregations and communities.
The Vice President affirmed that faith leaders are essential partners to the Administration and that she looks forward to continuing to work with them to build coalitions across faiths.
