Pro-Abortion Kamala Harris Will Break All Tie Votes in the Senate if Democrats Win Georgia

Kamala Harris could be given massive power to push her radical pro-abortion agenda if Democrats win the two U.S. Senate runoff races in Georgia in January.

Democrats already control the U.S. House, and the Electoral College confirmed pro-abortion Democrat Joe Biden as the next president on Monday.

The Republican majority in the U.S. Senate is the only thing in the way of Democrat leaders’ plans to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions and force taxpayers to fund them, but it also is at stake because of the two Georgia races.

If both Democrats win in Georgia, the Senate would have a 50-50 party split, and Harris, as vice president, would have the power to cast the tie-breaking vote.

A former California attorney general and senator, Harris has a radical pro-abortion record that includes prosecuting the pro-life whistle-blowers who exposed Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade. She recently opposed legislation to protect late-term unborn babies from abortion and newborns from infanticide.

Breitbart senior editor Rebecca Mansour said Harris would have immense power that few other vice presidents have enjoyed, and Harris no doubt would use it to support “a whole slew of far-left legislation that could dramatically change the course of our country.”

Mansour wrote this week:

Of course, many vice presidents have been called upon to cast a Senate tie-breaker even when one party had a clear majority. But a split Senate has happened only three times in U.S. history: in 1881, 1953, and for nearly six months in 2001.

So, the outcome of the Georgia Senate races could put Kamala Harris in a position enjoyed by very few vice presidents.

With this power, Harris and Democrat leaders could pass legislation to legalize the killing of unborn babies for basically any reason up to birth across the country, following the lead of states like New York and Virginia, according to the report.

Democrat leaders also want to end the Hyde Amendment, a long-standing measure that prohibits taxpayer funding for elective abortions in Medicaid. The amendment, which most Americans support, has saved approximately 2.4 million babies from abortion, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute.

Democrats also could act on one of Harris’s pet projects, a bill that would stop states like Georgia from passing pro-life laws that protect unborn babies and mothers. The bill would require states to receive approval from the U.S. Department of Justice before they enact any law to restrict or ban abortions.

Other potential actions could include limiting religious freedom for foster care and adoption agencies, homeless shelters and other religious-based charities through the Equality Act and filling federal court positions with activist judges.

And while Harris and Biden have neither confirmed nor denied their position on packing the U.S. Supreme Court, many believe Democrats would consider it if they win control of the Senate.

“Court packing is the beginning of the end of our republic. If the Democrats pull that thread, it will unravel the tapestry of our constitutional system,” Mansour wrote.

With so much at stake, leading pro-life groups including March for Life Action, Susan B. Anthony List, National Right to Life and others are working hard to support pro-life Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue for re-election. They are being challenged by pro-abortion Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.
