Senator Elizabeth Warren may be the only one to not have seen the irony in her battle call to protect voiceless babies.
The Massachusetts Democrat tweeted a video message decrying Republican efforts to cut Medicaid funding and replace ObamaCare, featuring a story of baby Peter who was born prematurely with lung disease.
Every Senator – no matter the party – should step up and fight for the millions of babies like Peter who can’t speak for themselves. pic.twitter.com/YiSc3GedAw

Chronicling the story of the baby’s birth and the family’s struggle to meet his health care needs, Warren presented her argument against the GOP’s “cruel health bill” and captioned her tweet with calling on all senators to “step up and fight for the millions of babies like Peter who can’t speak for themselves.”
Of course, Warren may not be remembering millions of other babies who can’t speak for themselves.

This dose of irony was not lost on the internet as Twitter users responded to Warren’s rallying cry.

The irony and lack of awareness here is staggering.

So you’re saying that babies should not be murdered by planned parenthood? That’s step in right direction!

Are there milllions of babies with this ailment? What about the babies who are killed every year by PP? Senator, will you fight for them?

Why not step up for the unborn

How about the unborn? Are you a social justice warrior for them too? They can’t speak for themselves either.

Senator Warren, wouldn’t “babies like Peter” include the 55 million murdered by abortion that you support?

Laughable…..coming from an advocate of PP that kills kids and sells the body parts.
