Vice President Kamala Harris visited Tucson on Friday in the wake of the ruling that reinstated what she referred to as a "Trump abortion ban."

  • She said the ban was the direct result of the former president's appointment of three U.S. Supreme Court justices who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.

"The overturning of Roe was, without any question, a seismic event. And this ban here in Arizona is one of the biggest aftershocks yet."
