Pro-abortion U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren held out a very premature baby’s story as an example of why Obamacare and Medicaid expansions are so important.
Ironically, Warren also supports late-term abortions, which could have destroyed the life of that very same baby who she is advocating for.
The Massachusetts Democrat posted a video on Twitter Monday where she shared baby Peter’s story and called on her fellow legislators to “fight for the millions of babies … who can’t speak for themselves” by opposing the bill to repeal Obamacare and defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
Every Senator – no matter the party – should step up and fight for the millions of babies like Peter who can’t speak for themselves. pic.twitter.com/YiSc3GedAw

In the video, Warren explained that Peter’s mother developed life-threatening complications when she was 26 weeks into her pregnancy. She said doctors delivered Peter at 26 weeks and two days of pregnancy in an attempt to save both his and his mother’s lives.
Peter spent several months in the hospital, and his medical care was extremely expensive. Warren said the family relied on Medicaid to help them pay for Peter’s life-saving treatments. She said he now is almost a year old and doing well.
Peter’s story is a great example of choosing life over abortion and providing support families need. But Warren is not pro-life. Quite the opposite, Warren has a 100-percent pro-abortion voting record. She does not support rights or protections for babies before they are born, no matter what the situation.
On Monday, Twitter users quickly pointed out Warren’s hypocrisy.
Do you also want every Senator to fight for all the unborn babies who can’t speak for themselves?

What about the kid in Britain whose government run health care insists that he must die. America doesn’t need that.

Warren openly supports Planned Parenthood, the group that aborts more than 300,000 unborn babies every year, more than any other group in the United States. The health care bill that she opposes would defund Planned Parenthood and potentially help save thousands of unborn babies’ lives.
Warren should be clear: When she says she wants protections for babies, she is not referring to all babies – just the ones who are born.
