(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Kamala Harris (D.-Calif.) published a commentary on Medium.com on Jan. 30, 2018 explaining why she opposed a bill that would ban abortion after the 20th week of pregnancy.

In her commentary, she revealed that her grandmother used to drive through villages in India using a bullhorn to promote birth control.

“I grew up hearing stories about my grandmother—my mother’s mother—who used to go to villages in India in her little VW bug,” wrote Harris.

“My grandmother would take a bullhorn and make sure women in these villages knew how to access birth control,” Harris said.

“And today, all of us must also raise our voices on behalf of women’s health and reproductive justice,” she said. “Because this is only the latest fight in a long assault on women’s health.”

“So we need to get out our bullhorns and advocate for our reproductive rights,” Harris said. “Shout from the rooftops. Call our senators. Tweet. March.”
