Kamala Harris Tells Arizona Voters Trump Is to Blame for State’s Draconian Abortion Ban

HeadlineApr 15, 2024

Vice President Kamala Harris told voters in Tucson Donald Trump is responsible for Arizona’s recent revival of an 1864 abortion ban.

Vice President Kamala Harris: “And we all must understand who is to blame. Former President Donald Trump did this. During his campaign in 2016, Donald Trump said women should be punished for seeking an abortion. Don’t forget that. He said women should be punished.”

Vice President Harris made the remarks in her second visit this year to the key battleground state.

In related news, organizers in Colorado say they have collected enough signatures to add a measure to the November ballot calling for enshrining abortion access in Colorado’s Constitution. Arizona activists also plan to add an amendment on abortion rights to their state’s ballot.
