Vice President Kamala Harris says Congress must act and pass legislation guaranteeing American women abortion rights.

In an interview with CBS News Robert Costa, Harris said the women were denied a “constitutional right” afterward Supreme Courtthe decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Harris said, “I think we all share a sense of deep outrage that the United States Supreme Court took away a constitutional right that was recognized, took it away from American women.”

The vice president continued: “Now we’re looking at a case where the government can interfere in what is one of the most intimate and private decisions that anyone can make.”

The interview will air on CBS’ “Face the Nation” this Sunday.

On Friday, President Joe Biden signed an executive order designed to help women travel to states where abortions are legal and expand access to abortion pills through the Department of Health and Human Services.

Harris said, “We also need Congress to act because that branch of government is where we actually codify, which means putting into law, rights that again we’ve taken for granted, but obviously have now been taken away from American women.”

When asked if she felt as if former Democratic leaders failed in not writing Roe v. Wade into law, Harris dodged the question: “I think, to be very honest with you, I. .. I believe that we should have considered fairly, but we certainly believed that some issues were simply resolved. Certain issues are simply settled.”

Harris avoided echoing other Democrats’ calls for the impeachment of conservative Supreme Court justices.

The former California senator did say she didn’t “believe” the justices who said they believed Roe v. Wade had been decided.

Harris said, “I’m coming from the perspective of experience in the Senate. I never believed them. I did not believe them. That’s why I voted against.”

The vice president charged Congress with taking action on Roe v. Wade: “When you think about the Voting Rights Act, Congress acted, the Civil Rights Act, Congress acted because where there were any issues, especially through the courts or any other system, we as a nation decided on the sanctity of these rights, we would legislate it. That’s what we need to do about Roe and the principles that underlie Roe.”

It comes days after Harris was widely criticized for her apparently incoherent speech following the July 4 shooting in Highland Park that left seven people dead.

At the scene of the shooting, Harris said, “We have to take this seriously, just like you, because you were forced to take it seriously.”

She continued: “The whole nation needs to understand and have a level of empathy to understand that this can happen anywhere [to] any people in any community. And we need to come together and talk about why it needs to stop.”

One person tweeted about the speech: “Word salad. It means absolutely nothing.” Another reads: “Nineteen months of continuous streak of never making a single coherent statement as Vice President. Almost wonderful in its consistency.”

On Friday, Harris met with Democratic lawmakers from Indiana, Florida, Nebraska and Montana, states that have Republican legislatures and governors and could soon pass abortion bans.

Harris was quoted as saying at the meeting that the Biden administration would demonstrate a “commitment to protecting access to reproductive health care.” The vice president urged pro-abortion lawmakers to “continue to protect reproductive rights and freedoms at the state level.”

At the meeting, South Dakota Democrat Erin Healy said, “How close to death does a person have to be before a doctor intervenes?” South Dakotans should have the freedom to travel anywhere in this country without question. Applying some state border laws about who can leave and who can’t, paints a very bleak future for America.”

South Dakota Republican Gov. Christy Noem announced plans to further tighten the abortion ban during a special legislative session.

While Indiana Democrat Phil GiaQuinto said WPTA about her feelings about her meeting with Harris, saying, “I think the administration is doing a good job, a great job, of getting the message out that they believe in the health and well-being of women. And again, that politicians have nothing to do with this decision.”

Recently released Yahoo News/YouGov poll taken June 24-27 show that California Gov. Gavin Newsom would do better in the presidential race against former President Donald Trump in a hypothetical 2024 election than the vice president.

In a matchup between Harris and Trump, 41 percent of those polled were tied, while another 18 percent said they did not know who they would vote for in a hypothetical 2024 election.

But when the former president was pitted against Newsom, the California Democrat was leading by just 1 percentage point, 39% to 40%.
