Actress Priyanka Chopra & U.S. Vice President Harris tackle mansplaining on abortion rights


Washington, 30 Sept. U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris urged senior female Democrats on Friday to continue fighting for abortion rights and stressed the importance of electing two more Democratic senators in the 2018 midterm elections.

At the Democratic National Commission's Women's Leadership Forum on Friday in Washington, Harris said, "If there were ever any reason for this organization to exist in recent history, the opportunity is now."

During a talk show led by actress Priyanka Chopra, she remarked, "We have got to do everything we can in the next 39 days to remind people what is at issue in these elections."


Chopra took shots at guys exploiting ladies at the start of the session. She made a joke about the uncomfortable silence in the space "Do you recognise that noise? Ladies, it is the sense of no mansplaining." President Joe Biden promised earlier this month that Democrats would codify the right to an abortion into law if 2 more Democratic senators were elected to the U.S. Senate in the Nov 8 upcoming elections. He attempted to claim that this would allow for the discharge of the filibuster, a legislative roadblock that needs a 60-vote majority to be eliminated.

Harris' tie-breaking vote as vice president handed Democrats a tenuous hold on the Senate, that is now evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans. Two Democratic senators, though, are so against getting rid with the filibuster.

After the Supreme Court's Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization judgment in June overturned the right to an abortion enshrined nearly 50 years ago in Roe v. Wade, abortion has become a major problem for voters across the nation.
