The current Vice President has said some bizarre things.

And she appears so out of her league, even Democrats don’t want to see her on the 2024 ticket.

No wonder, because now Kamala Harris compared killing babies to getting this common cancer treatment.

There is a saying from the comedian Ron White that says, “You can’t fix stupid.”

Nowhere is that truer than in politics.

Saving lives vs. taking them

Many Americans believe our elected officials must be brighter and savvier then the average American.

But nothing could be further from the truth.

One need not look too far to find blunders, missteps, ignorance, and confusion in our leaders.

Take the current administration.

While most of the focus has been on the clearly declining mental abilities and constant gaffes of President Joe Biden, it’s his Vice President, Kamala Harris, who may win the prize for stupid remarks.

For example, Kamala Harris recently compared killing babies by using chemical abortion pills to getting chemotherapy to fight cancer.

That’s right, the second most powerful person in the nation, if not the world, just compared killing babies to saving lives of cancer victims.

Harris’ remarks were in response to a ruling by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals that removed the national block a federal judge placed on the dangerous abortion pill. 

However, the appeals court also banned mail-order distribution of the chemical abortion drugs that put women’s lives at risk, condemned the FDA’s improper and rushed approval process for the drug and restored strict limits on the drug. 

Invalidating science

Harris reacted to the decision, falsely claiming it “invalidates the scientific, independent judgment of the FDA.”

Of course, COVID taught us all about the FDA and its faulty science, which in many cases is more aptly called science fiction.

So it’s bad enough Harris lauded the FDA.

But her comments comparing a drug that kills a preborn baby to legitimate cancer medicine is simply over the top stupid.

Harris said in a statement, “The Fifth Circuit’s decision—just like the district court’s—second-guesses the agency’s medical experts. If this decision stands, no medication—from chemotherapy drugs to asthma medicine, to blood pressure pills, to insulin—would be safe from attacks.”

The Vice President went on, “This decision threatens the rights of Americans across the country, who can look in their medicine cabinets and find medication prescribed by a doctor because the FDA engaged in a process to determine the efficacy and safety of that medication.” 

Harris also said the lawsuit is “the next step to a nationwide abortion ban” and promised the administration would “continue fighting” for abortion access.

Well, let’s hope she is right on that second to last point!

But the simple fact is, the FDA makes mistakes, sometimes deadly mistakes, all the time. 

The science and medicine prove it time and time again.

So the court’s decision is in fact based on very clear science about the deadly chemical abortion drug.

“The decision severely limits access to mifepristone, standing between doctors and their patients,” Harris said. “President Biden and our Administration remain firmly committed to protecting access to medication abortion, as the President and I have made clear since the day of the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs.”

Partial victory

In its order, a three-judge panel for the Fifth Circuit partly overruled Judge Matthew J. Kacsmaryk of the Northern District of Texas, who had ruled the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of mifepristone in 2000 was not valid. 

The Fifth Circuit’s ruling allowed the dangerous abortion pill to continue being sold nationwide while the case goes through the appeals process and the Supreme Court rules.

But some facts in the case are beyond questioning.

The FDA, by illegally fast tracking and approving chemical abortion drugs, failed to abide by its legal obligations to protect the health, safety, and welfare of girls and women. 

The FDA actually never studied the safety of the drugs, ignoring the potential impacts of the hormone-blocking regimen on the developing bodies of adolescent girls.

And the FDA also blatantly disregarded the overwhelming evidence that chemical abortion drugs cause more complications than surgical abortions, and eliminated necessary safeguards for pregnant girls and women who undergo this dangerous drug regimen.

That’s why the Fifth Circuit gave women and pro-life advocates a partial victory, severely limiting the distribution of the drugs.

While the U.S. Supreme Court had temporarily lifted those restrictions, it is evident they will issue a ruling on the case.

And we can’t wait to see what Kamala Harris says about that.
