Justice is on the ballot in 2020.

That’s what Sen. Kamala Harris told Iowans as she campaigned throughout the Hawkeye State. All kinds of justice — climate justice, racial justice, gender orientation justice, wage justice, economic justice, — just about every justice except for David Justice (baseball fans get it).

Consider what Harris said about her background when it comes to dealing with children’s issues.

“Our children are our future.”

“I have spent my career fighting for children.”

“A society is judged on how we treat our children. We must ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed and thrive not just on #WorldChildrensDay, but every day.”

More important than justice for children, though, is “reproductive justice,” according to Harris.

Take a listen.

And, don’t forget this one!

Abortion bans, Harris says, are dangerous.

As President, the Department of Justice would block any “unconstitutional anti-abortion” laws before they could take effect.

Children being ripped from the womb, no, my mistake. Children ripped from their parents and put in cages — that requires immigration justice!

A special thank-you to Planned Parenthood for fighting for reproductive justice.

This tweet sums it up just fine. It is by no accident that Harris included “reproductive justice” before “justice for our children.”

Because with her so-called version of “reproductive justice,” there can be no justice for our children.

Thankfully, justice, at least as Harris defines it, is no longer on the ballot in 2020.
