During Monday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that Vice President Kamala Harris was “correct” in saying that the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade was similar to slavery.
“We must also take steps to protect other fundamental freedoms, including the freedom for a woman to make decisions about her own body,” Harris said earlier that day to the NAACP. “And think about it: For the first time in generations, the United States Supreme Court — the highest court of our land; the former court of Thurgood Marshall — took away a constitutional right, that had been recognized, from the people of America, from the women of America.”
Harris added, “we know, NAACP, that our country has a history of claiming ownership over human bodies. And today, extremists, so called leaders, are criminalizing doctors and punishing women from making healthcare decisions for themselves.”
Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre if President Biden agreed with Harris’ comments that the “Supreme Court decision on abortion access is similar to slavery.”
“She is correct,” Jean-Pierre answered. “Today’s decisions are criminalizing doctors and essentially taking the rights away from women, taking the freedom away from women, really taking away people’s privacy that does matter. And that is important.”
“So the President agrees?” Doocy asked.
Jean-Pierre then said that she would “need to actually see exactly what was said” and know the “complete context” but added that “the Vice President is actually right.”
