Kamala Harris supports Planned Parenthood.

Kamala Harris has been a supporter of Planned Parenthood, which called her "a defender of reproductive rights and health care".

Kamala Harris has been a supporter of Planned Parenthood, which called her "a defender of reproductive rights and health care".Planned Parenthood is a nonprofit organization that provides reproductive health care in the United States and globally. Planned Parenthood has contributed funds to Kamala Harriss’ political campaigns, of which she has been a vocal supporter. David Robert Daleiden, an American anti-abortion activist, claims that Harris has risen over $81,000 from Planned Parenthood and other abortion promoters.

But in July 2015, an organization called The Center for Medical Progress posted undercover videos, shot in Texas, as evidence of proof that Planned Parenthood was illegally trafficking aborted fetal tissue. Even though Harris was in the initial investigation, she left that office to take her seat in the U.S Senate two months before charges were first brought against the pair by her successor, Xavier Becerra. During the U.S Presidential race 2020, a meme circulated on social media claiming that Harris favored the abortion agency against the journalist, which is false.

Kamala Harris believes that access to health care should be a right and not just a privilege for those who can afford it and has been a defender of reproductive rights and health care. Democrats had stated that they support Planned Parenthood for the right to quality and affordable health care, including abortion.

As a senator, Harris has co-sponsored the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would prevent states from enacting certain restrictions on abortion access, and the EACH Woman Act, which would effectively undo the Hyde Amendment, which bans the use of federal funds to go towards abortion, such as through Medicaid, by ensuring coverage for abortion under public insurance plans.

As a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, Harris proposed a unique plan to protect abortion rights and access. Modeling it on the Voting Rights Act, her proposed plan would require states to get federal approval to enact restrictive laws in what’s known as a pre-clearance requirement.
