Kamala Harris spent Saturday in Philadelphia campaigning on abortion and meeting with legislators on abortion rights.

Meanwhile, crime is so rampant in Philly that police “can’t keep up” with the homicide rate.


Philadelphia is one of the most dangerous places to live in the United States thanks to Democrat policies.

Democrats have turned Philly into a hellhole of violent crime.

NPR reported:

The homicide rate in Philadelphia continues to rise higher than last year – which was a record year for homicides, although those numbers are slowly declining.

Currently, 121 people have been killed in Philadelphia since the beginning of the year, up 2% from last year.

The crime numbers are counter-intuitive: there have been fewer shootings than last year, but more of those shootings have resulted in deaths.

In their bi-weekly update on gun violence in Philadelphia, city officials admitted that the homicide rate in areas identified as hot spots of violence by the police department’s targeting Operation Pinpoint prevention program is actually rising.

Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said homicides in the Operation Pinpoint grid are roughly 41% higher than last year.

Meanwhile Kamala Harris is out campaigning with Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro and discussing abortion access after the GOP-controlled PA legislature “advanced a proposal this week for a constitutional amendment that would say an abortion is not a right.” per ABC 6.
