Elizabeth Warren insisted that aborting unborn babies is a “human right” Wednesday during the Democratic presidential debate in Georgia.
Warren, a Massachusetts senator and one of the top candidates in the polls, did not include any qualifiers or exceptions when she said that abortion should be treated as a human right. Her voting record and past statements show that she supports abortions for any reason up to birth. In February, she even voted against a bill to protect newborn babies from infanticide if they survive abortions.
On the debate stage Wednesday, MSNBC moderator Rachel Maddow asked Warren about the heartbeat law in Georgia that prohibits abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy, Rome News-Tribune reports. A federal judge recently blocked the law from going into effect.
“Abortion right are human rights,” Warren responded. “If abortion is made illegal, rich women will still get abortions.”
Later, she added: “I want to be an America where everyone has a chance. A woman should be able to call on her mother, her partner, her priest, her rabbi, but the one entity that should not be in the middle of that decision is the government.”

On Twitter that same evening, Warren reiterated her radical pro-abortion stance.
“Abortion rights are human rights and economic rights. If abortion is made illegal in America, rich women will still get them. It’s just going to fall hard on poor women and women of color. I’ve got a plan to protect access to abortion no matter what SCOTUS does. #DemDebate,” she wrote.
“And protecting the right of a woman to be able to make decisions about her own body is fundamentally what we do and what we stand for as a Democratic Party,” Warren continued.
Warren’s pro-abortion extremes do not end there. During the last presidential debate, she said she would force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions.
The Massachusetts senator said she would work to end the Hyde Amendment if elected. The Hyde Amendment prohibits taxpayer-funded elective abortions in Medicaid. It has had strong bipartisan support for years, and continues to have strong support from voters. But the abortion industry and Democratic Party now want it gone, and many presidential hopefuls do, too.
Warren falsely claimed that “three out of four” Americans support Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court case that essentially allowed abortions up to birth.
But that is demonstrably false.
A January national poll conducted by Marist University found an overwhelming majority of Americans support restrictions on abortion.According to the poll, three in four Americans (75 percent) say abortion should be limited to – at most – the first three months of pregnancy.
A new poll from YouGov/Americans United for Life this week also found that 70 percent of Americans support abortion limits. Additionally, a 2019 Gallup poll found 60 percent of Americans take a pro-life position on abortion, wanting all (21 percent) or almost all (39 percent) abortions to be illegal. And in May, a Hill/HarrisX poll found that 55 percent of voters said they do not think laws banning abortions after six weeks – when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable – are too restrictive, according to The Hill.
Democrat voters who believe abortions should be limited do not have much of a choice in 2020. All of the top Democrat presidential contenders believe abortions should be legal for any reason up to birth and taxpayer funded.
