Pro-abortion groups praised Elizabeth Warren as a stand-out after the Democratic presidential debate Friday in New Hampshire because of her radical pro-abortion proposals.
Warren, a Massachusetts senator and Democrat presidential contender, told voters that she would work to codify Roe v. Wade into national law so that abortion on demand would remain legal even if the U.S. Supreme Court repeals the infamous abortion case, according to the pro-abortion blog Jezebel.
“If we are going to protect the people of the United States of America and we are going to protect our rights to have dominion over our own bodies, then it’s going mean we can’t simply rely on the courts,” Warren said. “It is time to have a national law to protect the right of a woman’s choice.”
Along with appointing pro-abortion judges and kicking out pro-life government employees, Warren also would force taxpayers to fund the killing of unborn babies in abortions. On Friday, she claimed that abortion is an economics issue, and poor women get hurt when abortions are illegal.
When asked if the Democratic candidates were planning to codify Roe v. Wade or establish a “litmus test” for potential Supreme Court justices to make sure that they would continue to support the legislation, Warren shared a great point about why keeping abortion legal is so important for economically disadvantaged communities. “I’ve lived in an America in which abortion was illegal, and rich women still got abortions, and that’s what we have to remember about this.”
Jezebel praised her radical pro-abortion proposal as “one of the strongest stances of the night.”
Though her position is hugely unpopular with voters, Warren attempted to claim otherwise, saying three of four Americans support Roe v. Wade, the Washington Times reports.

However, many different polls indicate that this is not true. A recent poll by Marist found that six in 10 Americans (62%) say that if the Supreme Court revisits Roe v. Wade it should allow states to determine restrictions (46%) or make abortion illegal (16%). Only 33% of Americans say Roe should be interpreted to allow for legal abortion any time without restriction.
Most Americans want viable, late-term unborn babies to be protected from abortions, and they do not want their tax dollars to pay for abortions either. In 2016, when Hillary Clinton campaigned on the same issue, a Harvard University poll found that only 36% of likely voters support overturning the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer-funded abortions in Medicare.
And while Warren claims taxpayer-funded abortions are especially important for poor women, the poll suggests that low-income women do not want them. According to the poll, voters who make more than $75,000 were more supportive of forcing taxpayers to fund abortions (45% in favor), while those who make $25,000 or less were strongly against it (24% in favor). In other words, the people most likely to qualify for a Medicaid-covered, taxpayer-funded abortion are the ones who oppose it the most.
All of the top Democratic presidential candidates support abortions without restriction through all nine months of pregnancy and want to force taxpayers to pay for them. Some candidates even have refused to welcome pro-life Democrats into their so-called party of inclusion.
Democrats like Warren are not courting voters with their radical pro-abortion agenda, they are courting the billion-dollar abortion industry and its campaign donations. Planned Parenthood alone is spending at least $45 million on the 2020 election to push its agenda.
