Vice President Kamala Harris delivered a clear message Tuesday night to protect women's rights while speaking to a a packed room of pro-abortion rights elected leaders, officials and candidates from across the country, one day after a draft opinion leaked that suggested the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade. "Roe v. Wade in its power has protected a woman's right, her right, to make decisions about her own body for nearly half a century," the vice president said. "If the court overturns Roe v. Wade, it will be a direct assault on freedom, on the fundamental right of self-determination to which we are all entitled as Americans." Her remarks were delivered to an energized crowd gathered at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington for the annual We are EMILY Gala. 700 people were expected to be in attendance. The event put on by EMILY's List, an organization with a mission to elect pro-abortion rights candidates across the country. The gala was held by coincidence just one day after Politico released its bombshell report that a majority of Supreme Court justices appear ready to overturn Roe v. Wade. The opinion – if finalized – would end 50 years of precedent. Women in almost half the country could see their access to abortion severely limited, Harris said Tuesday night, if Roe v. Wade is overturned. In light of the draft opinion, Harris acknowledged the attendees in the room have been on the frontlines for the fight for many years but warned there was "nothing hypothetical about this moment."
