Hattie’s Hangout: Kamala Harris in Office Should Not Be Celebrated

The first female Vice President-elect — Kamala Harris — is not a win for women. It’s a tragedy.

When the media decided to call the 2020 election in favor of former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the uproar of celebration for Sen. Harris being named the first Black female vice president struck everyone’s social media feeds. Excited Americans even flocked to Susan B. Anthony’s grave, who played a vital role in the women’s suffrage movement in the late 1800s, placing “I voted” stickers all across the memorial along with flowers and Biden/Harris pins. 

The defacing of Anthony’s grave was an ironic sight, for the mass majority of Americans must have forgotten Anthony’s bold stance against abortion as they celebrated Harris, who believes it’s okay to kill unborn women living in the womb.

In a speech given by Anthony in 1885, the famous suffragist likened the act of abortion to those of wife murderers and rapists, calling out “this monster evil of society” that suppressed the voices of women. Sadly, many people refuse to remember the legacy of Anthony and what she actually stood for. Instead, they pushed aside history to celebrate a woman who stands for immoral policies that might make Anthony physically role over in her grave.

As a woman, why would I celebrate someone who believes the killing of my female peers is okay? 

As a woman, I am saddened that Harris has been put on a pedestal for her accomplishments, which are marred by the bloodstains of women who never had the chance to live. 

Where was this celebration for women like Condoleezza Rice, the first Black woman to serve as the U.S. Secretary of State? I never heard this sound of applause when Sarah Palin ran alongside John McCain for the presidential election in 2008. How about more recently, when Amy Coney Barrett had to defend herself against ruthless liberal senators that neglected to applaud such an accomplished woman in the legal field? 

None of these women, who are all accomplished in their own right, ever received the same level of acclamation that people have showered over potential VP-elect Harris, noting that this praise comes before the electoral college’s official voting on the presidential winner, which takes place in December. What is the difference? Aren’t each of these women who have paved a way for their success worthy of dignified recognition?

It seems that the only time people scream out praise for a female trailblazer is if she is a left-leaning, pro-abortion, “women’s rights” activist.

As a Christian woman, I have very little to celebrate in the accomplishments of Harris, who boldly rejects the biblical worldview on life and where it comes from. 

Hattie Troutman.

Harris’ political career rides on the delight of killing unborn babies, supporting the federal funding of Planned Parenthood, who is responsible for the murder of over 300,000 unborn babies per year. She also pushed for pro-life centers to compromise on their mission by enforcing free abortion advertisements outside their clinics when she served as the Attorney General of California. As a senator, Harris sponsored one of the most extreme abortion legislations in history that sought to remove restrictions on late term abortions. If Biden and Harris take the oval office in January, the trampling of human life in the womb will only continue as they both plan to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which keeps our federal tax dollars from directly funding abortions. 

Yes, it is incredible to see women rise in leadership positions across the U.S. government, but as a woman who holds to a Christian faith, I will always stand behind candidates that hold to those same convictions, not because they are female or in a minority. 

We live in a country that is ripe for opportunity for anyone no matter their race or gender. This is evident far before Kamala Harris appeared on the presidential election ballot. I love getting to cheer on women who live boldly and audaciously, but I refuse to celebrate a woman who cares more about her own political career than the lives of women who will never get the same opportunities she received. Where is the celebration in that?

  • Another well written article by Hattie Troutman! Thank you for boldly speaking truth! Keep it up, sister!

  • Well said Hattie! This is my first time reading one of your articles (and only the 2nd time coming to the Liberty Champion website) so I really appreciate what you wrote.

  • I disagree with this entire article that focuses on one topic. Why do women who disagrees with another womanś approach in the end love to tear them down just because your personal feelings are being validated? Just because she believes it is a womans right to choose does not mean she is killing women, like that is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. These could be male babies as well and if they were minority babies, would you feel the same way???? Problably not. Its sad that you Trump supporters cant realize that he only cares about himself and his own agendas What has he done for you other that make you feel like you are superior over all else, but that is not gonna happen cause we have a voice and we will be heard. Then you want to add in Christian values? Stop it that a cover up for a deeper hate!

    • And what about the RIGHTS OF THE UNBORN CHILD, HeatherGivner? Talk about HATE? What kind of coverup do Democrats employ when they EMBRACE Pro Choice under a mask of planned parenthood when it is outside MURDER. As far as Christian values, maybe you should check and see if you are capable of having a faith in something higher than your blind faith in a party that only seeks to further disable the less fortunate in this country. Yes, I said, “disable the less fortunate” by keeping them stuck in a welfare system that cripples them. I was a registered Democrat, but as a mother, could not abide by their blatant disregard for the unborn in this country. If you can abide that, God help you, is all I can say. And regardless of party, no one follows ANY leader in this country blindly or with total devotion. We are all individuals and as individuals, we can make up our minds at any time to support or NOT support anyone in authority over us. Hattie Troutman’s comments are “on the mark”.

    • Heather – Ms. Harris IS killing minority babies. Have you never heard of the origins of the Planned Parenthood corporation? The goal was destruction of minorities and any others who were deemed by the founder of the organization to be “undesirable”.

      The refusal to look at reality and facts fuels the abortion industry’s genocide toward minority communities, especially, and all babies in general.

      Trying to insinuate that pro life advocates are racist is trying to deflect reality. The left is killing innocent minorities, plain and simple. Learn the facts and demand an end to this horrible, Hitleresque slaughter of innocents that is perpetuated by those who endorse and celebrate this wretched practice.

    • Umm Harris is a baby killer that should tell you who she puts first!!!!

    • Heather G.,;
      I am appalled at your harsh words. It seems you belong to their club.
      Abortion is murder. K. Harris, I believe will go down in history and become well known and disrespected for her views on human life.

      Broadcasting hate for President Trump is not your real issue here.
      You either know our Creator or you vote for people who believe murdering the unborN is OK…. which is it?

      I thought so.

    • BRAVO FOR YOU!!! I’m glad someone stood up and said something to these people!! KUDOS to YOU!!!!

  • You are entitled to your opinion. That is our right to freedom of speech and freedom of the press. But please be reminded that laws of any kind can be brought to the American people for casting of votes yeah or neigh. Americans have the right to petition all branches and agencies of government for action. The Petition Clause in the First Amendment to the US Constitution indicates “the opportunity ….to change existing laws in a peaceful manner”. A democratic system that cannot be shut down. I remember the bombing of an abortion clinic in Alabama in 1990s that resulted in a young nurse losing an eye and having multiple broken bones. This is not acceptable behavior. It solves nothing. Violence still today on every hand and people certainly do not honor God by taking the law into their own hands. Prayers for Congress to seek the LORD God Almighty before any decisions made or laws ratified, making them officially valid.

    • and what about the violence towards the unborn child? You seem to be perfectly all right with that.

      • And what about the violence of your words and tone towards this person who disagrees with you? And your snide accusation about their beliefs? I follow Jesus who preaches non-violence and love. What religion are you?

  • Great article and well spoken. It is hard watching our America celebrate someone who supports the killing of the most venerable. Thank you for speaking out and standing on biblical principles.

  • I applaud you Hattie Troutman for honestly, truthfully and courageously telling the TRUTH. Harris should not be celebrated. What I don’t understand is why the Democratic Party doesn’t just come out and denounce abortion straight out. There are many good aspects of the Democratic Party, such as Environmental Concerns. But any loving Mother in this country; any loving daughter; any loving sister; any loving grandmother; canNOT in good conscience support women who say Pro Choice. Pro Choice is just a coverup for outright MURDER of innocent babies, plain and simple. It’s NOT a choice, it’s murder, and it is taking away the rights of the innocent babies who canNOT speak for themselves. Get this through your head, women of America. Abortion is NOT birth control, it is MURDER. Thank you Hattie for your article.

  • Another well written article. You have truly demonstrated excellent well thought out arguments for your position in not just this article, but other previous ones you have published as well. I look forward to the Champion for Christ that you are becoming through your future published works.

  • You GO, girl!!!!! I am sick and tired of people in positions of influence thinking we are all thoughtless drones who just follow the drum. Now that totalitarian socialists control EVERY avenue of thought: schools, colleges, public television, network television, corporate America, congress, the white house, the internet (google, facebook, twitter, etc. and youtube.. just try to do ANYTHING online without this influence), housing, business, and sadly, yes.. even CHURCHES. There are very few bible-believing churches out there that will confront ANY aspect of the “culture police” without running scared, apologizing and seeking affirmation from the very people they should be standing up against!
    I homeschool our kids and refuse to belong to any church banging the “social justice” or “critical race” bs. We refuse to shop at stores that run with the PRIDE banner (HomeDepot, Target, etc). Be proud of your beliefs and let them shine! Stand up, America! Our founders gave up everything for FREEDOM. There are a WHLE LOT of us out there! Just check out the map of the “Red states” in this 2020 election.
