Brown Statement on VP Kamala Harris’ Invite to Indiana Statehouse

Sen. Liz Brown (R-Fort Wayne) provided the following statement on Indiana Democrats’ invite to Vice President Kamala Harris to visit the state as special session to enact pro-life protections begins:

STATEHOUSE (July 25, 2022) – “Vice President Kamala Harris is radically out of step with Hoosiers’ common-sense views when it comes to offering basic protections for unborn humans and women’s health and safety. In May, she presided over the U.S. Senate vote to codify Roe and expand abortion access into federal law. As U.S. Senator, Harris cast votes against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would provide infants born alive after an abortion attempt life-saving care. She also voted against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Act, which would protect an unborn child from horrific abortion procedures after 20 weeks when they feel pain. She voted against the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act and believes the abortion business, Planned Parenthood, is deserving of federal funds.

“One has to question why Indiana Democrats invited VP Harris to Indiana to stump for abortion. Do they share her radical view on painful, late-term abortions and denying basic life-saving care to infants born alive after an abortion attempt? Do my Democratic colleagues believe Hoosiers should fund abortions with their hard-earned tax dollars?

“In great contrast, my pro-life colleagues and I want Indiana to be a safe place for unborn children and a place that supports women and families through pregnancy and parenting. As abortion advocates rally, I will be meeting with my fellow elected officials and working towards the strongest pro-life legislative package possible that we can pass this special session.”
