Already on the campaign trail pro-abortion Democrat Elizabeth Warren is being pressed on her vote to allow infanticide.

Warren, a Massachusetts senator and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, defended her position at a campaign rally last week in Dubuque, Iowa. She was confronted about her vote after touting her plan for universal, government-controlled healthcare.

Warren bragged that her universal health plan would help the most vulnerable members of society, including sick babies and the elderly.

“What we say to each other is if it’s your grandma or it’s you or it’s your niece’s baby, we’re all going to pitch in a few nickels, so we can be there for each other. That is the best of who we are,” she said.

Someone in the crowd then asked Warren why she voted against a bill to require basic medical care for infants who survive abortions.

“What about the babies that survive abortion — how come they can’t have health care?” the person asked.

“Infanticide is illegal everywhere in America,” Warren responded.

“But you voted against it,” the person replied.

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

Last week, Warren also tried to deflect criticisms by claiming the bill was about women’s health care.

“Women and their doctors should decide what’s best for their health – not the @SenateGOP,” she wrote on Twitter.

Pro-abortion Democrats have been misleading the public about the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. 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.

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.

The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act narrowly failed last week, after almost every Democrat voted against it. The Senate voted 53-44 – a few votes shy of the 60 needed to end Democrats’ filibuster. Every Republican present voted to end the filibuster, along with Democrats Joe Manchin, Bob Casey and Doug Jones, while all other Democrats voted against the bill. Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who supports abortion, did not vote.
