Miami, (EFE).- The vice president of the United States, Kamala Harris, said in Florida that the Supreme Court in 2022 took away from women the “fundamental constitutional right” to decide over their own bodies, but the Government of Joe Biden fights to guarantee it and promote a law that protects it.
“No one can tell people what to do with their own body,” Harris stressed at an event in Tallahassee, the capital of Florida, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the US Supreme Court ruling. the right to abortion in 1973.
The vice president, who arrived in Tallahassee on Saturday and traveled back to Washington today, spoke of the reversal of that ruling decided by the same court last June as a deprivation of rights in a country whose constitution recognizes freedom and persecution of happiness as fundamental values.
“How can you be free if a woman cannot decide, if a doctor cannot treat his patient and if a person cannot direct the course of his own life?” he asked himself.
the fight continues
The vice president invited all Americans to join the fight to preserve reproductive rights and highlighted the new measures taken by the Government to guarantee access to abortion pills prescribed by doctors in certified pharmacies throughout the country.
Harris harshly criticized those who “call themselves leaders”, referring to governors who restrict the rights of women to decide about their pregnancy and penalize, even with prison terms, health professionals for caring for them.
Speaking to a largely female audience who had lined up early in the morning to attend the event at The Moon concert hall, she said Americans fear what else could happen in Republican-controlled states after laws banning the abortion.
“How dare they?” he asked amid applause from the public, which included members of the US Congress and local authorities, but also women like Amanda from Texan, victims of the law that prohibits abortion. In this state.
According to Harris, who greeted Amanda and her husband from the podium, this Texan woman was denied medical care three times in the middle of a miscarriage for fear of being penalized for the ban and was only seen when she suffered an infection. that could have cost him his life.
“No one is immune from the impact of these laws,” he stressed, to later ask Congress to pass a law that protects reproductive rights and assured that “President Biden will sign it.”
Criticism of Florida and other states with bans
In his visit to Florida, which some analysts have defined as a “challenge” by the Biden Administration to Governor Ron DeSantis, a fierce critic of the Government to which presidential ambitions are attributed, Harris did not avoid criticizing the anti-abortion policy of the southern state.
In July 2022, one month after the overturning ruling that protected abortion for 49 years, a law came into effect in Florida that reduced the term to legally abort from 24 to 15 weeks of pregnancy, with no exceptions for cases of rape or incest. .
“Here in Florida, healthcare providers face five-year prison terms just for simply doing their job and now the state has targeted abortion drugs and threatened pharmacies with criminal charges if they dispense those drugs.” medicines prescribed by doctors,” said the vice president.
Harris warned that 22 states, including Florida, have said they won’t abide by new federal rules that allow women to get medicines prescribed by their doctors at certified pharmacies.
In response to these “so-called leaders,” President Biden issued a memorandum directing members of the Administration to identify barriers to access to prescription drugs and recommend actions to ensure that physicians can legally prescribe, that pharmacies can dispense and that women can obtain safe and effective medicines,” he stressed.
After assuring that the Government is not going to “go back” in its objective of restoring the rights of which women are deprived, the vice president indicated that the Americans “spoke with their vote” in the last elections.
“In essence, they said that one does not have to abandon one’s faith or deeply held beliefs to accept that the government should not tell people what to do with their own bodies,” he concluded.
