Amy Klobucahr, the pro-abortion senator from Minnesota, has withdrawn from the selection process for a vice presidential running mate for Joe Biden. She says Biden, who also supports abortion on demand, should pick a black woman as his running mate.

“After what I’ve seen in my state, what I’ve seen across the country, this is a historic moment,” the former presidential contender said on MSNBC. “And America must seize on this moment. And I truly believe, as I actually told the [former] Vice President last night when I called him, that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket.”

“And there are so many incredibly qualified women. But if you want to heal this nation, right now — my party, yes, but our nation — this is sure a hell of a way to do it,” Klobuchar added.

Klobuchar and Biden spoke Wednesday night by telephone and she conveyed her decision.

Biden tweeted his support for Klobuchar after she announced her decision to withdraw from the vice presidential race Thursday night, writing, “You know how to get things done. With your help, we’re going to beat Donald Trump.”

With Klobuchar leaving, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris are seen as two of the leading contenders for the number two spot.

Warren’s name has reportedly floated to the top of the list because she would help Biden attract more leftist Democrats behind his lukewarm candidacy.

The Massachusetts senator is a bit of a surprise for the potential running mate selection. Warren’s presidential campaign was such a disaster that she became the laughingstock of the country at the beginning of it when a DNA test proved she was not Native American despite her claims otherwise.

As vice-president, Elizabeth Warren would be a disaster for unborn babies.

During a November presidential debate, Warren said she believes “abortion rights are human rights,” and she will “fight” for abortion if elected president.

Her Medicaid for All plan also would force American taxpayers to pay for the killing of unborn babies. Warren consistently has said she supports taxpayer-funded abortions without restriction. She also opposes even modest limits on abortion after unborn babies are viable.

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.

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.

Meanwhile, Kamala Harris is equally pro-abortion.

Harris wanted to make sure Democrat presidential primary voters knew she’s staunchly in favor of aborting as many babies as possible, right up to birth. Harris is so pro-abortion she told an audience that killing babies in abortions is something that should be declared “a priority.”

But Harris was caught exaggerating about the impact of not having abortion on demand. During a Democrat debate, Harris said it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say “women will die” because of restrictive women’s health-care laws passed by Republicans in state legislatures.

Except it’s a huge exaggeration. Harris was solidly refuted when she made the false claim. And even the liberal Washington Post recently debunked the myth. In May, the Post fact checker found what pro-life advocates have been saying for years: that few women died from illegal abortions in the decade prior to Roe v. Wade, and a rise in the use of antibiotics appears to be the biggest factor in the drop in maternal abortion deaths, not the legalization of abortions.

In another debate, Harris criticized ABC panelists for not asking about abortion. The debate, she said, “was three hours long and not one question about abortion or reproductive rights.”

Harris has a long track record promoting abortion and has come under fire for calling a pro-life Catholic nominee an “extremist” simply because he is a member of a Catholic group. Harris is so extreme one abortion that she has received awards for her abortion advocacy.

Harris also came under fire for lying about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The false statements even earned her four Pinocchio awards from the pro-abortion Washington Post.

She also raided the home of David Daleiden, who exposed Planned Parenthood selling body parts of aborted babies.

No matter who Biden chooses, his running mate will be just as pro-abortion as him.
