Elizabeth Warren Promises Not to Spread Misinformation, But Says Abortion is Like “Getting Your Tonsils Out”

Elizabeth Warren is confused. Yesterday she made a promise to not spread misinformation. But, when it comes to abortion, she is one of the biggest distributors of misinformation.

In response to what she considers a rash of fake news and false information making its way around social media, Warren, a pro-abortion Democratic presidential candidate, says she is taking a new pledge not to spread fake news online. The pledge is targeted at big social media companies she claims are allowing disinformation to flourish.

Warren said in a plan on her website that she will push for “new laws that impose tough civil and criminal penalties” on companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google, among others. She also said President Donald Trump employed such misinformation during the 2016 election.

The Massachusetts Democrat also made a promise.

“So today, I’m making a pledge: I will not knowingly use or spread disinformation to benefit my own candidacy or damage others. And I will fight disinformation aimed at my campaign, my opponents, and voters,” Warren wrote in a tweet announcing her plan.

But Warren told one of the biggest whoppers when it comes to abortion — comparing killing babies in abortions to “getting your tonsils out.” It’s hard to imagine a bigger case of disinformation. The comment came when the Senate was considering the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“We cannot go back to the time of back-alley abortions,” she wrote Wednesday. “But that could happen if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court and helps overturn Roe v. Wade. We must #StopKavanaugh — the lives and futures of countless American women are at stake.”

Tens of millions of unborn women’s lives have been destroyed because of Roe v. Wade, but Warren ignored how an abortion kills an innocent, unique human life.

In a column for the women’s magazine Marie Claire, Warren said Kavanaugh could be the deciding vote to overturn Roe, and claimed women would suffer if that happens.

“When abortions are illegal, women don’t stop getting them— they just risk their lives to do it,” Warren wrote. “Today, thanks to Roe, getting an abortion is safer than getting your tonsils out. Before Roe v. Wade, many women turned to back-alley butchers to end their pregnancies.”

Warren is completely wrong on several points. First, an abortion is never a safe procedure, and it cannot be compared to any other common medical procedure, such as a tonsillectomy. Its very purpose is to kill a unique, living unborn baby, and about 60 million of them have been killed in abortions since Roe.

Here’s hoping that, if Warren truly opposes disinformation and fake news, she starts with herself.
