Abortion activist Kamala Harris has announced that she will be running for president against President Donald Trump, who has governed with a pro-life position.
“I am running for president of the United States,” Harris announced on ABC, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. “I am very excited about it.”
“I feel a responsibility to stand up and fight for the best of who we are, and that fight will always include — as one of the highest priorities — our national security,” the Democrat from California said when asked what qualifies her to be president.
Harris has a long track record promoting abortion and has recently come under fire for calling a pro-life Catholic nominee an “extremist” simply because he is a member of a Catholic group.
Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris announced on Monday that she is officially throwing her hat into the ring and seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2020.
Amid speculation of Harris’s presidential aspirations, the California senator revealed in December she would make a decision on whether or not to launch a 2020 presidential run over the holiday season. She also acknowledged the challenges she would face while running in such a heated election and how cutthroat the presidential race might be.
“Let’s be honest, it’s going to be ugly,” Harris said at the time. “When you break things, it is painful and you get cut. And you bleed.”
Leading up to her presidential announcement, the first-term senator had been actively elevating her national profile. Harris spent more money on Facebook ads during the summer than any other senator despite not being up for re-election in November 2018, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.
Harris is so extreme one abortion that she has received awards for her abortion advocacy.
She also raided the home of David Daleiden, who exposed Pl;anned Parenthood selling body parts of aborted babies.
