Pro-abortion Democrat Elizabeth Warren accidentally supported the March for Life when she bought drinks from two girls’ lemonade stand last month in Iowa.
The Washington Free Beacon reported about the unexpected twist this week after Warren’s lemonade stop received a lot of publicity in August.
Warren is a U.S. senator from Massachusetts and Democratic presidential candidate. She supports abortion on demand, including taxpayer-funded and third-trimester abortions.
On Aug. 8, she stopped by 11-year-old Sienna Michels’ and Audrey Billings’ neighborhood lemonade stand and paid them $10 for several drinks, according to the report. Warren’s campaign used the moment as a photo op, and a tweet of her interaction with the girls went viral.
However, Dan Michels, Sienna’s father and a supporter of President Donald Trump, turned the situation into an opportunity to talk with his daughter about values and politics.
He told the Free Beacon that the girls thought Warren was nice. He said he explained to his daughter why he could not vote for Warren, and one of those reasons was her radical pro-abortion stance.
“My daughter told us she wanted us to vote for her,” Michels said. “We talked about the abortion part of things and said maybe we should donate money to stop abortion, and my daughter was all for that.

“… because [Warren is] pro-choice, we said we should donate her money to a pro-life [cause],” he continued.
He said they decided together to donate the money to the pro-life March for Life Education and Defense Fund.
Overall, he said the girls raised about $80 through their neighborhood lemonade sales. Michels said they probably will set up the stand again next year.
Warren, a top Democratic presidential candidate, has a radical pro-abortion position that even many pro-choice voters disagree with. During a Democratic presidential debate in June, she refused to support any limits on abortion, even in the third trimester when babies are viable and healthy. She called abortion on demand a “basic human right.”
In 2017, Warren co-sponsored a bill nicknamed the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act.” Then, earlier this year, she voted against a bill to protect newborn babies from infanticide if they survive abortions.
Warren also said she will work to force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions by overturning the Hyde amendment.
The results include a significant number of women and self-identified “pro-choice” voters.
