Elizabeth Warren forced to answer heckler who asked ‘How come babies that survive abortion can’t have healthcare?’

Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s disingenuous, virtue-signaling rhetoric about how every single child in America deserves quality healthcare was not well received by one attendee at an event she held Wednesday in Dubuque, Iowa.

“What about the babies that survive abortion — how come they can’t have health care?” the attendee turned heckler bellowed to the senator as she bloviated about healthcare for children.


“But what we say to each other is if it’s your grandma or it’s you or it’s your niece’s baby, we’re all going to pitch in a few nickels, so we can be there for each other. That is the best of who we are,” Warren had blathered before the unnamed heckler called her out.

Yet she was among 42 Democrat senators who on Monday voted against a bill that would have prohibited “a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.”

Dubbed the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, the bill by Republican Sen. Ben Sasse was designed to ensure that any babies who survive a failed abortion receive proper healthcare and aren’t just left to rot and die. It was in designed in effect to stop infanticide.

And yet …

“Infanticide is illegal everywhere in America,” Warren replied Wednesday to her heckler.

That was a lie.

“There is no existing federal law enacting an explicit requirement that newborns delivered in the context of abortion be afforded ‘the same degree’ of care that ‘any other child born alive at the same gestational age’ would receive, as this bill would,” National Review notes.

“Only 33 states currently offer some kind of protection for infants born after attempted abortions, and those laws can be repealed; New York’s Reproductive Health Act last month did just that.”



As noted by Liberty Counsel last month following New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s signing of a radical new abortion law, infanticide is now essentially legal in the far-left state:

“The so-called ‘Reproductive Health Act,’ recently signed into law by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, authorizes the murder of unborn babies up to the point of birth for any reason and revokes medical care for babies who are born alive after a failed abortion.”

Following her “no” vote Monday, Warren took to Twitter to celebrate, claiming at the time that Republicans had allegedly just “tried (and failed) again to score political points at the expense of women.”

But what does providing healthcare to a child that’s survived an abortion and is now outside of its mother’s womb have to do with the mother’s health and so-called “rights?”

Nothing. National Review notes that Sasse’s legislation “places no restrictions on access to abortion or on the type of abortion a woman can receive, nor does it mandate any particular type of medical care for a born-alive infant — the specifics are left up to the judgment of the physician in each case.”

It just says in short that a baby who survives an abortion deserves the right to healthcare and, more importantly, the right to life. And apparently, the senator doesn’t believe a baby does.

Yet she’s among the cadre of Democrat presidential candidates who enjoy feigning to be caring, compassionate, empathetic people who care so deeply about every child in America.

Yeah, every child except for babies …

Observe the reactions to Warren’s tweet:

The man who dared to call her out at the Iowa event Friday is meanwhile being praised:

It’s unclear why Democrats, including every single candidate running for the presidency, continue to tacitly or directly defend infanticide. Is it just that they don’t care about babies? Or is it that they’re so beholden to the abortion lobby that they refuse to take any actions that might hurt the baby-killing industry?

What’s clear, according to a growing chorus of conservatives, is that “abortion is a winning issue,” in that the more Democrats are called out and forced to account for their pro-death views, the more pro-life the American people seem to become:
