Former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate Senator Kamala Harris, D-CA, lamented to voters in Troy, Michigan this week that “we all have” Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from the 2016 election when President Donald Trump won.
“You guys are seriously, you guys are seriously gonna make this happen,” Harris said. “You know that. I mean, you know, we all have PTSD from 2016, yes.”
Harris explained how Democrats can learn from the mistakes of 2016, highlighting that “in Michigan, we missed that election on average by two votes per precinct, think about that.”
She said, “Two votes per precinct on average. And what that tells us, right, is we want to be motivated by optimism and understanding what we know and what we have the power to do. Ifwe just turn out just an extra three or four more votes per district, we win. Right? Per precinct. So, this is doable. We can do this. We will do this. We’re gonna do this. We’re gonna elect Joe Biden the next president of the United States. Yes we are. Yes we are and you guys are gonna do this.”

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’
Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”
“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”
The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.
The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.
Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
