Vice President Kamala Harris visited Philadelphia to host roundtable on reproductive rights
SPRING GARDEN - Vice President Kamala Harris was in Philadelphia Saturday hosting a roundtable discussion on reproductive rights.
The visit comes more than three weeks after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in a landmark ruling, which allowed states to have the final say about whether abortions will be legal.
Harris, joined by several members of Congress, met with about 40 Pennsylvania legislators.
Harris talked about the Biden Administration’s commitment to protecting access to reproductive health care, including abortion access.

She also encouraged state leaders to keep fighting to protect reproductive rights in Pennsylvania.
Currently, abortion is still legal in Pennsylvania through the early stages of pregnancy or if the patient’s life or health is in danger.
