Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made a presidential campaign stop in Dubuque, Iowa last week where she got a whopper of a closing question that put her in the spotlight again. Last week, she went on record as pro-infanticide by voting against Republican Senator Ben Sasse’s Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. That act simply would have instructed doctors to perform medical care on a baby born after a botched abortion.
Only three Democrats in the Senate supported Sasse’s bill. One of them co-sponsored it. All Republicans voting stood by it. Warren was all progressive policies and smiles in front of the crowd in Iowa in the wake of that telling vote, discussing single-payer healthcare for all. Then a man at the end bluntly confronted her on why infants born-alive from botched abortions were denied healthcare.
“What about the babies that survive abortion?” the man asked. “How come they can’t have healthcare?”
Warren testily shot back, “Infanticide is illegal everywhere in America.”
Undeterred, the man clapped back, “You voted against it,” referring to her ‘no’ vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
Warren had nothing so she simply repeated herself and went about getting off the stage. “Infanticide is illegal everywhere in America,” she said again.
But if you go back to last week when she opposed Sasse’s bill, that’s not what she said at the time. She bragged about the bill being blocked and chastised Republicans for infringing on a woman’s right to choose, which is a common pro-abortion refrain.
“Republican politicians just tried (and failed) again to score political points at the expense of women. Enough,” she wrote. “Women and their doctors should decide what’s best for their health — not the [Senate GOP].”

Women and their doctors should decide what’s best for their health – not the @SenateGOP.

From The Daily Wire:
“Senator Sasse drafted the legislation soon after Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, a Democrat, endorsed infanticide during a radio interview. He wanted to get his colleagues’ infanticide position on record.
“I want to ask each and every one of my colleagues whether we’re okay with infanticide,” said Sen. Sasse of the legislation. “This language is blunt. I recognize that and it’s too blunt for many people in this body. But frankly, that is what we’re talking about here today. Infanticide is what the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is actually about.”
“Sasse continued: “Are we a country that protects babies that are alive, born outside the womb after having survived a botched abortion?” he continued. “That is what this is about. Are we a country that says it’s okay to actively allow that baby to die — which is the current position of federal law? That’s the question before us, plain and simple.”
“Deep down, each of us knows that every member of our human family ought to be protected, and deserves to be cherished and loved. The love we see every day in the eyes of moms and dads for their newborn babies is an inescapable reminder of that fundamental truth. Love is stronger than power,” the Senator added.
“As noted by Live Action’s Lila Rose, abortionists have been recorded talking about abortion survivors. “Washington, D.C. abortionist Cesare Santangelo told our undercover investigators that he would make sure babies ‘do not survive’ if they were born alive at his facility,” said Rose in a statement. “A New York abortion worker told our Live Action investigator to ‘flush’ the baby down the toilet or ‘put it in a bag’ if she’s born alive. In Arizona, an abortion worker told us there ‘may be movement’ after the baby is outside of the mother and that they would refuse to provide help and instead let her die. Dr. DeShawn Taylor, former medical director for Planned Parenthood, told a Center for Medical Progress investigator that identifying ‘signs of life’ after a baby survives an abortion is contingent upon ‘who’s in the room.'”
“There is no difference between infanticide and abortion: both kill the same child,” declared the pro-life advocate.”
That is the blunt truth of it and Warren is not supporting women – she’s supporting infanticide… the murder of the most innocent among us. I’m glad she got called on the carpet over it. Her answer pretty much says it all here.
