Vice President Kamala Harris announced she will embark on a tour across the nation promoting abortion rights, beginning on the anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade next month.
In focusing on abortion, the vice president’s tour is set to advance what Biden-Harris reelection campaign communications director Michael Tyler told CNN will be the “central pillar of the campaign moving forward."
Harris’ “Fight for Reproductive Freedoms” tour, announced Tuesday, will include events focusing on the alleged “harm” of abortion bans. The tour is scheduled to begin in the battleground state of Wisconsin on Jan. 22, 51 years after Roe v. Wade legalized abortion nationwide in 1973.
Biden and Harris have vowed to “bring back” the now-overturned Roe v. Wade as the law of the land. The campaign recently launched a pro-abortion campaign ad in several swing states pledging to expand abortion access for women.
