Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday called pro-life politicians “so-called extremist leaders” for placing limits on abortion after the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn. Roe v. Wade.

“And immediately, of course, after Dobbsso-called extremist leaders — that’s what I call them — so-called extremist leaders across our country began passing and implementing laws to criminalize doctors, nurses, health care providers,” Harris said at the Democratic Attorneys General Association conference.

“I mean, think about those people — why they entered that profession, their sense of calling and duty to heal and help. And these so-called extremist leaders are passing laws to criminalize these people, passing laws to punished women,” Harris continued.

Harris complained that the Supreme Court “deliberately shifted the fight for reproductive rights to the states” and praised Democratic attorneys general for “boldly defending reproductive freedom.”

While the vice president called conservative politicians “so-called extremist leaders,” she ignored the extremist rhetoric coming from members of her own party.

Most recently, a 41-year-old man admitted to killing 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson because he was “part of an extremist Republican group,” according to local reports. The man reportedly feared the Republican group was “coming to get him.”

The North Dakota man told law enforcement he hit Ellingson with his car because of “a political argument” the two were having.

Ellingson’s politically motivated death came less than a month after President Joe Biden used the weight of his presidency to describe “MAGA Republicans” as dangerous “extremists” and “white supremacists.”

“There is no doubt that the Republican party today is dominated, run and feared by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country,” Biden said in a politically fueled primetime speech.

While talking about “so-called extremist leaders,” Harris also did not mention Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), the Democratic candidate for the US Senate in Ohio, who recently called on Ohioans to “kill and deal” with the extremist Republican movement. .

Further, Harris’ attempts to paint pro-life leaders as “extremists” ignores the fact that millions of Americans nationwide support abortion limits.

For example, a poll earlier this year found that more Americans support a 15-week abortion ban than oppose it. Another poll conducted over the summer found that 44 percent of Americans think states should have control over abortion policy.
