Kamala Harris omits right to 'life' when quoting Declaration of Independence in abortion speech

Vice President Kamala Harris left out mentioning the right to life when quoting the Declaration of Independence on Sunday during a speech in support of abortion

access. Harris' remarks in Tallahassee, Florida, came on the 50-year-anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade, which granted women the right to an

abortion nationwide. The anniversary is the first since the decision was overturned in June 2022, allowing states to set their own abortion laws. But in Harris' speech, she

quoted the Declaration of Independence in saying that Americans are entitled to the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness, notably ignoring how that the phrase also states

Americans are granted the right to life. "We collectively believe and know, America is a promise … It is a promise of freedom and liberty," Harris said. "Not just some, but

for all. A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence, that we are each endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Be clear, these rights were not

bestowed upon us, they belong to us as Americans." KAMALA HARRIS REVEALS BIDEN'S 2023 PRIORITIES INCLUDES INFLATION, JOB GROWTH: ‘NEVER BEEN MORE OPTIMISTIC’ The full
