Americans React To Kamala Harris’s Call For Post-20 Week Abortions With Pictures Of Their 20-Week-Olds

People are sharing photos of their children at 20 weeks gestation after a tweet from Sen. Kamala Harris in 2018 resurfaced, in which she advocated against a ban on abortions past 20 weeks.

Many people tweeted photos and sonograms of their children at 2o weeks old gestation or earlier, denouncing Harris’s pro-abortion platform and call for a ban.

Others shared photos of babies prematurely born around 20 weeks, fully developed and alive.

Harris is a longtime pro-abortion activist with a long congressional record supporting the movement. She voted against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and was a co-sponsor of the Women’s Health Protection Act, which allows abortions without bans. Harris has also notably called for Congress to pass a law affirming the Roe v. Wade ruling in 1973.

Harris even received an informal endorsement from Planned Parenthood Action on Twitter.

She also has a 100 percent rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America, a pro-abortion activism group.

While Biden has not been as active as Harris in abortion activism, he said that his presidential platform includes ending the Hyde Amendment, which blocks federal funding of abortions as well as ensuring “safe, legal access to abortion by establishing nationwide protections for abortion that would stand even if Roe v. Wade were overturned by the Supreme Court.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, at 20 weeks, babies in the womb have all of their body parts and become more active in the womb by “regularly sleeping and waking” and becoming “awakened by noises or your movements.” Scientific research also shows that babies can feel pain very early in the womb, suggesting that an abortion would cause immense physical harm and suffering to the baby before death if performed.
