Speaking in Tallahassee, Florida about abortion, Roe v. Wade, and what she sees as the right to kill babies in the womb, Vice President Kamala Harris conveniently left out the “right to life” when speaking about the fundamental rights we have as Americans as described in the Declaration of Independence, obviously doing so because the right to life would include the right to not be murdered in the womb.
One of her questionable quotations from historical American passages was a reference to the National Anthem, saying that America is no longer the land of the free because women can’t kill babies, ignoring that abortion was quite illegal when the National Anthem was written. In her words:
The right of every woman in every state in this country to make decisions about her own body is on the line. And I’ve said it before, and I will say it again: How dare they? How dare they?
And, you know, there is a collection of words — there is a collection of words that mean everything to us as Americans: the heartfelt words of our great National Anthem. That America is the land of the free and the home of the brave.
But let us ask, can we truly be free if a woman cannot make decisions about her own body?
But that was just one of her ridiculous references to history. She also attempted to quote the Declaration of Independence but left out the bits about our “Creator” and the “right to life”, as both of those are big no-no phrases in the Democrat lexicon now. Here’s what she said:
So we are here together because we collectively believe and know America is a promise. America is a promise. It is a promise of freedom and liberty — not for some, but for all.
A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence that we are each endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Be clear. These rights were not bestowed upon us. They belong to us as Americans.
The actual line from the Declaration of Independence is “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
So Kamala’s quotation very clearly left out both God and the right to life, probably because the crowd would have been less than happy with her had she brought either of those things up in her pro-abortion speech.
She did completely make up a right, however, saying that abortion was “the very foundations of freedom,” telling the crowd: “And can we truly be free if so-called leaders claim to be, quote — I quote, “on the vanguard of freedom,” while they dare to restrict the rights of the American people and attack the very foundations of freedom.“
