Kamala Harris Will Discuss Abortion at a Labour Conference in Nevada

Later on this week, Vice President Kamala Harris is scheduled to make a trip to Nevada, where she will deliver a speech at a large labour conference and meet with state legislators to discuss reproductive rights.

An official from the White House who spoke on the condition of anonymity confirmed that Harris would go to Las Vegas on Wednesday in order to deliver a speech at the annual convention of the United Steelworkers labour organisation.

Her remarks are likely to centre on the “common vision” that exists between the labour group and the administration of Vice President Joe Biden, noting the contributions that the steelworkers made to the federal infrastructure law that was approved the previous year.

On Monday, during the union convention, Vice President Biden presented some pre-recorded remarks, and on the same day, Labor Secretary Marty Walsh spoke to the attendees of the convention.


It is also one of Senator Harris’s first public appearances since she broke a tie vote in the United States Senate to pass the Inflation Reduction Act, which is a $700 billion climate, health care, and tax package. The vote was to approve the Inflation Reduction Act.

The proposal was able to clear a significant barrier as a result of her vote, which also gave President Joe Biden and the congressional Democrats a triumph just three months before the midterm elections in 2022.

The Vice President will also meet with Nevada legislators while she is there to talk about reproductive rights in the wake of the decision by the United States Supreme Court to overturn the Roe v. Wade judgement.

Since the draught ruling of the court was leaked in May, Senator Harris has hosted a number of talks and roundtables on the subject of abortion and reproductive care with legislators and activists from various states.

The ruling of the Supreme Court did not have an effect on the availability of abortions in Nevada before 24 weeks of gestation because of a referendum that was passed in the state in 1990. The reason for this was due to the timing of the voting.

The Democratic governor of Nevada, Steve Sisolak, issued an executive order at the end of June with the intention of safeguarding access to reproductive health care and abortion services for individuals who reside in other states but travel to Nevada for these services.

The order’s target audience was people who reside in states other than Nevada but travel to Nevada for these services. Individuals who live in other states but go to Nevada for the services covered by the order were the intended recipients of the message.
