A few things to know before visiting Alabama, Sen. Kamala Harris
One of the slew of 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidates recently felt the need to wade into Alabama’s affairs and make broad brush statements with zero facts at hand.
Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) addressed California Democrats at their convention in San Francisco just a week ago. Harris brought up Alabama’s recent abortion ban and castigated pro-life supporters by saying they couldn’t care less about a woman once she gives birth to the baby.
Harris stated, “What are they doing to support the mother and what she needs in terms of prenatal help? They’re not doing a thing, but they’re trying to tell women what to do with their bodies.”
This is patently false and Harris most assuredly knows it. What Harris did was an attempt to score some low hanging fruit for political traction with those who couldn’t care less about the facts.
However, in the event that someone here in the state hears of Harris’ comments and believes that Alabamians promote laws with no thought to the people affected, here is a list of organizations within the state that are more than willing, able, and qualified to assist a pregnant woman in need, both before and after the birth of the baby. These people are doing critical work in this state. They deserve our time, support, donations, prayers and praise for how they not only talk about the value of unborn life but earnestly show it every single day of the year.
Here are just a few of the services the organizations provide for women, men and babies:
- Pregnancy tests
- Pregnancy options
- Ultrasound/Ultrasound referrals
- Adoption information & agencies
- Maternity & infant supplies
- Medical referrals
- Parenting education
- Post-abortion counseling
- Housing referrals
- Medical referrals
- STD/STI information
- Support for men
Harris will be in Alabama this weekend, taking part in an event hosted by NARAL, an abortion promoter. It’s probably safe to say Harris is not here on a fact-finding mission to support her outrageously false claims.
While I would love for Harris to view the evidence and correct her insulting characterization of Alabama and the amazing pro-life organizations committed to loving and helping mothers in this state, I sense that a bold-faced undeniable fact could walk up and urinate on Harris’ leg and the Democratic senator would shamelessly declare that it’s raining.
