Pro-life and pro-abortion groups reacted Saturday to projections that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has defeated President Donald Trump to win the White House.
The Associated Press called the race for Biden Saturday morning, followed by network news outlet ABC, NBC, and CNN. The Fox News Decision Desk also projected that Biden will win the state of Nevada and the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, giving him more than the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the presidency.
Celebrating the news, the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League hailed Democratic vice presidential nominee, Sen. Kamala Harris, as a champion for abortion.
“BREAKING: @KamalaHarris just made history as the first woman, first Black woman, and first Asian American woman elected as vice president! She’s always been a champion of reproductive freedom, and we can’t wait to have her fighting for all of us. #ReproFreedomVoter,” NARAL posted on Twitter Saturday afternoon.
Alexis McGill Johnson, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, also celebrated the news, writing on Twitter: With the election of @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris, America will be in the hands of leaders who are committed to advancing and expanding reproductive rights. We at @PPact are thrilled to see them elected and will be ready to work with them on day one.”
