Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts senator and 2020 presidential candidate, defended infanticide Monday on Twitter.

The pro-abortion Democrat was one of 44 U.S. Senators who voted to block the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The bill requires basic medical care for babies who are born alive after botched abortions.

“Women and their doctors should decide what’s best for their health – not the @SenateGOP,” Warren wrote Monday night in defense of her vote.

Warren and the rest of her fellow pro-abortion Democrats have been misleading the public about the legislation. The bill has nothing to do with women’s health and everything to do with the health of newborn infants. It simply requires that abortionists provide the same basic medical care to an infant who survives abortion that doctors would to any other baby born at the same stage of pregnancy.

Fortunately, many people are not buying Warren’s claims. Her tweet met with strong backlash, including from people who identify as pro-choice on abortion:

SIGN THE PETITION: Stop Infanticide! Stop Abortions Up to Birth!

Every single Democrat in the Senate who is running for president voted against the bill, including Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Amy Klobuchar.
