Sheryl Lee Ralph of ‘Abbott Elementary’ joins VP Kamala Harris

Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph will join Vice President Kamala Harris in a campaign event for “reproductive freedom,” part of Harris’ tour through battleground states to speak about abortion access. Harris spoke on May 1, in Jacksonville, FL. The day a six-week abortion ban took effect in the state,  and put the responsibility for the new restrictions directly at the feet of former President Donald Trump. “As of this morning, 4 million women in this state woke up with fewer reproductive freedoms than they had last night. This is the new reality, under a Trump abortion ban,”.

Ralph, who is married to state Sen. Vincent Hughes (D-Philadelphia), has spoken out on abortion access before, appearing at a “Bans Off Our Bodies” rally in Harrisburg in 2022, as the country awaited the Supreme Court ruling that eventually overturned Roe v. Wade. At the 2022 event, Ralph said, “no one else should have the right to tell me what to do with my own body.”
