Democrat presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg has already faced intense criticism from pro-life advocates over his allegedly telling a pregnant Bloomberg News employee to “kill it” and encouraging her to have an abortion so he didn’t have another employee on maternity leave.
Now, for the second consecutive Democrat presidential debate, abortion advocate Elizabeth Warren is letting Bloomberg have it — not because she’s suddenly pro-life but because attacking Bloomberg over his mistreatment of women gives her a great er voice in the primary.
The billionaire has come under fire for telling his pregnant employee to “kill it” after she disclosed her pregnancy, according to a lawsuit she filed. The allegations emerged following a 1997 lawsuit which accused Bloomberg of numerous inappropriate behaviors in the workplace. His comments have now re-surfaced for further public scrutiny following his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination.
During the last debate, Warren attacked him on the comment and demanded that Bloomberg release women from nondisclosure agreements they had signed with Bloomberg News complaining about a hostile work environment. This time she recalled her own job issues and referred to Bloomberg’s derogatory remark.
“At least I didn’t have a boss who said to me, ‘Kill it,’ the way that Mayor Bloomberg alleged to have said to one of his pregnant employees,” she said.
“I never said that,” Bloomberg responded. “Oh, come on.”

Then Warren pivoted back to the non-disclosure agreements.
“Then let the women have the opportunity to speak,” she said. “They are bound by non-disclosures so that they cannot speak.”
Bloomberg, who was the Mayor of New York 2002-2013, is known for his extreme pro-abortion stance and he has donated $14 million to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion company.
