Margaret Brennan, the interviewer, wasted no time getting to the heart of the matter. “What is it that you believe?” she asked. “I mean, what week of pregnancy should abortion access be cut off?”
Harris’s response, though detailed, shied away from an actual answer as she said, “We need to restore the protections of Roe v. Wade. We’re not trying to do something new.”
“Let me be very clear. From day one, the president has been clear, I have been clear. We need to put back the protections that are in Roe v. Wade into law. Since the Supreme Court took it, Congress has the power and ability to pass legislation to put those protections back in law and Joe Biden will sign that bill. So, that is what we want,” she said further.
But Brennan persisted, seeking clarity on whether there should be specific terms defining when abortion should no longer be permitted. “At which week of pregnancy?” she pressed.
Again, Harris avoided giving a direct answer, instead reiterating the need to reinstate the Roe v. Wade protections, which allowed abortion up to the point of “viability.”
“We’re not trying to do anything that did not exist before June of last year,” she insisted. “We are saying–”
Brennan interjected, pointing out that many Republicans have voiced concerns that Democratic policies allow for abortions right up until the moment of birth.
Harris immediately dismissed these concerns as “ridiculous” and a “mischaracterization of the point” while still refusing to offer a clearer insight into her stance on the issue.
“I am being precise. We need to put into law the protections of Roe v. Wade,” she argued.
For conservative viewers, this interview leaves them with more questions than answers as they wonder if Harris is willing to endorse abortion without any restrictions, right up until the last moment of pregnancy.
