Kamala Attacks Americans’ Faith in Bizarre Claims

Vice President Kamala Harris insisted Friday that people can support abortion rights without having to “abandon their faith.”

The comments, which came as the U.S. Supreme Court could be poised to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade case that made abortion a federal right, drew widespread criticism online. Several key Democrats, including President Joe Biden, Harris, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have been trying to reconcile their religious faiths with their support for abortion as the decision looms.

“There’s nothing about this issue that would require anyone to abandon their faith,” Harris said Friday. “It’s simply saying that the government should not have the ability to decide what an individual does with her own body.”

Catholics, evangelical Protestants, and many Jews believe abortion goes against their faith.

“Lord have mercy,” tweeted author Stephen Mansfield. “This woman is either ignorant or deeply deceived.”

“Kamala Harris is wrong,” tweeted Arkansas state legislator Aaron Pilkington. “To Support abortion is to stand oppose to Christian Faith. Just ask any Bishop or Priest.”

Harris grew up in an interfaith household, as her mother was Hindu and her father Baptist. In an interview last year, she described attending a Baptist church while growing up.

“On Sundays, my mother would dress my sister, Maya, and me in our Sunday best and send us off to the 23rd Avenue Church of God in Oakland, California, where Maya and I sang in the children’s choir,” Harris told Interfaith Youth Core. “That’s where I formed some of my earliest memories of the Bible’s teachings. It’s where I learned that ‘faith’ is a verb and that we must live it, and show it, in action.”

Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff is Jewish, and the couple, which married in 2014, observes both Christian and Jewish traditions.

The General Board of American Baptist Churches in the U.S.A. opposes abortion in most circumstances, according to a 1988 declaration.

“As American Baptists we oppose abortion, as a means of avoiding responsibility for conception; as a primary means of birth control; and without regard for the far-reaching consequences of the act,” the board said.

The controversial issue has reclaimed center stage in American politics after an early draft of a United States Supreme Court majority opinion leaked in May that indicated the controversial Roe v. Wade decision would likely be struck down.

The draft, written by Justice Samuel Alito, stated that “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start” and “we hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled.”

Pelosi and Biden, who are both Catholic, also support abortion rights. In March, Pelosi described herself as a devout and practicing Catholic, but said the right to abortion is the law.

“That was right for me, it’s not for me to say what’s for somebody else,” Pelosi said. “Nor is it right for you, nor is it right for the Supreme Court. This has been a precedent of the court that should be upheld by the court.”

Biden, a lifelong Catholic, has been criticized by members of the faith for his adamant pro-abortion views. In 2019, he dropped his long-standing support for the Hyde Amendment, the 1970s law forbidding the use of federal funds to subsidize abortions. In the weeks since the Supreme Court took up the issue again, his support for the right to abortion has hardened.

“The idea that we’re going to make the judgment that is going to say that no one can make the judgment to choose to abort a child based on a decision by the Supreme Court, I think, goes way overboard,” Biden said last month.

  1. Did it ever occur to these crazies that a large number of American women do not agree with them. They look like a bunch of spoiled children who possibly aren’t getting their way.
    If you want an abortion-go to a state that allows it.

  2. There is something worse than being a hypocrite, though, and that’s being an unrepentant and unforgiven hypocrite. Harris, Pelosi, Biden, and the whole damned Democrat party, plus all the baby murders and supporters are so pathetic most of them don’t deserve to live either. Just a thought!

  3. Kamelnose expresses a severely warped view of Christianity. Her views are definitely not inline with the major Protestant or Catholic doctrine.

  4. When your faith guides how you live your life, go with (your) God. When you think your faith should determine how I live mine, MYOB. You’re not my mother and we do not live in a theocracy.

  5. THEY SAY THAT THEY (THE BRANDON SOCIALIST CLUB) DON’T WANT TO PUSH PEOPLE INTO ANYTHING, YET THAT IS WHAT THEY CONTINUALLY TRY TO PUSH DOWN OUR THROATS. SATAN AND HELL AWAIT YOU BUNCH OF SATAN’S DEMONS.

  6. For ANY cause, you can’t have it both ways. Robert E. Lee was a West Point graduate who was asked by Lincoln to lead the Union Army in the Civil War, but at a time when ‘state’s rights’ were of greater importance than Federal rights, Lee told Lincoln he was going to ‘stick with Virginia’, resigned his U.S. Army commission, and subsequently became the leader of the Southern army. Devout Catholics that they are, Biden and Pelosi (and others) need to ‘choose a position’ on abortion then formally and publicly resign from the ‘other view’ that isn’t in line with their view. “Hmmm. Do I want to continue to be a Catholic for whatever that might be worth for all eternity after I’m gone, or do I want to keep my Government post and make millions more ($) for a few more years even though I’ve ALREADY got more money than I could possibly spend? But, of course! That ‘after life’ stuff is probably just a bunch of make-believe crap, anyway. I’m gonna ‘go with the money’ … but I’m STILL gonna claim to be a Catholic just in case I actually can have my cake and eat it, too. I mean, that’s what all we politicians do: play both sides against the middle and hope for the best.” Ain’t America great!

  7. Thou shalt not kill.
    Period
    A young girl/woman does have alternative options to committing murder. The most obvious would be to keep their legs closed until they’re married. I’m simply saying American family values have left the building!!!

  8. The whole thing shows people have no idea what the R v W ruling is and what it should be struck down. —- IT’S NOT ABOUT ABORTIONS. – It’s about weather a State can make a law against abortions. ,,,, And since the Constitution says NOTHING about abortions, or any other specific medical procedure, R v W should never have prevailed in ANY US court in the first place.

    Don’t people know that anything not SPECIFICALLY spelled out in the constitution is 100% up to individual states.

    FACT. Abortions will still be legal in a lot of US states. Some will even permit post birth homicides. Is that not enough for these nut cases.
