The Vice President of the United States, kamala harrishas criticized the ruling of the Supreme Court of abolish the constitutional right to abortionafter annulling the Roe v. Wade ruling, and has warned that after suspending this right the next one may be homosexual or interracial marriage.
“This is the first time in our history that a constitutional right has been taken away to the people of the United States”, lamented Harris, who has warned that, after this, there could be the suppression of other rights that are considered “resolved”, including homosexual marriage.
Fear for other rights already achieved
The vice president has detailed that the Supreme Court’s ruling includes as an argument that abortion “is not deeply rooted” in the history of the country, with what, according to her, questions other rights such as marriage between people of the same sex or interracial, as well as the use of contraceptive methods.
Regarding the Supreme Court ruling, Harris has lamented that, tnearly 50 years valuing the benefits of Roe against Wade, from now on we have to talk about this hhistoric court ruling “in the past“, according to the US network CNN.
For Harris, this marks the beginning of “ua health care crisis” and that, in addition, after the Supreme Court ruling, millions of American women will go to sleep this Friday without the same health care protections with which they woke up in the morning.
Coincides with Biden and Obama
Finally, it has coincided with the words pronounced by the president, Joe Bide, and that former president Barack Obama has also signed, regarding the responsibility that citizens have for, in the next elections in November, vote for representatives who guarantee the defense of these types of rights.
“You have the power to choose leaders who defend and protect your rights. And as the president said today, with your vote, you can act and you have the last word. So this is not over,” Vice President Harris concluded.

Wade ruling that recognized for the first time women’s right to unrestricted abortion during the first trimester of pregnancy, a legal precedent in force in the country since 1973.
