Abortion Rights Campaign

Harris will launch her campaign in Wisconsin on January 22, the 51st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion nationwide. The 2022 Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case overturned this landmark ruling.

Harris stated her support for fundamental liberties, highlighting the need for women to make their own body decisions without government intrusion. Harris’s strategy begins in Wisconsin, a battleground state with variable abortion availability post-Supreme Court rulings.

While other event dates and locations are unknown, Democrats suffered a major setback with Roe v. Wade. As Republican-controlled states restrict abortion rights, the route to nationwide abortion rights is unclear.

Vice President Harris Leads Democratic Abortion Rights Strategy

Democratic losses in the 2022 midterms were mitigated by public anger against the ruling. They strategically used this issue to avoid a Republican takeover of Congress, sparking plans to make it a 2024 election issue.

Harris’s position in next year’s election will be crucial, unlike vice presidents’. Biden’s age—he’d be 86 after a second term—also helped her rise. Harris has led the White House’s abortion stance in over 50 events in 16 states with lawmakers, attorneys general, activists, and healthcare professionals.

Her recent college trip included campus visits to talk to students about this topic. Harris’s commitment to abortion rights aligns with the Democrats’ goal to rally their base and navigate reproductive issues in the approaching election.
