During last night’s Democrat presidential debate, pro-abortion candidate Elizabeth Warren defended her position supporting abortions up to birth – even on fully-formed, healthy, viable babies. She claimed the right to abortion — ending the lives of unborn children — is a “basic human right.”
In answering a question on abortion, Warren said she would not support any limits on abortions at all — placing her squarely in support of abortion on demand up to birth.
HOLT: Senator Warren, would you put limits on — any limits on abortion?
WARREN: I would make certain that every woman has access to the full range of reproductive health care services, and that includes birth control, it includes abortion, it includes everything for a woman. And I want to add on that. It’s not enough for us to expect the courts to protect us. Forty-seven years ago, Roe v. Wade was decided, and we’ve all looked to the courts all that time, as state after state has undermined Roe, has put in exceptions, has come right up to the edge of taking away protections…
Later in the debate, Warren called aborting babies “health care” and a “basic human right.”
“Well, health care is a basic human right, and I will fight for basic human rights,” she said.
Warren also said she wanted a federal law that would enshrine abortion, overturn every pro-life law nationwide and prevent states from passing pro-life laws to protect babies from abortions.
“It’s not enough for us to expect the courts to protect us,” she said, “We now have an America where most people support Roe v. Wade. We need to make that a federal law.”
