Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren was publicly confronted Friday over her stance on late-term abortions across the United States; telling a packed audience that “infanticide is illegal.”
Warren was speaking in Iowa when she weighed-in on her Universal Childcare proposal and a ‘Medicare for All’ healthcare scheme; saying “If it’s your grandma, or it’s you, or it’s your niece’s baby, we’re all going to pitch in as equals so we can be there for each other.”

“What about the babies that survive abortion? How come they can’t have healthcare?” asked one audience member.
“Infanticide is illegal everywhere in America. Infanticide is illegal everywhere in America,” said Warren.
DEVELOPING: Sponsor of Late-Term Abortion Bill Apologizes, Says ‘I Didn’t Read It’
A Democratic co-sponsor of a controversial late-term abortion bill apologized Thursday; claiming she didn’t read the entirety of the text before signing-on to the legislation .
Delegate Dawn Adams of Richmond sent an email to Virginia voters hours a viral video revealed the new law could permit “infanticide” in the immediate aftermath of giving birth.
Worth noting while watching the "moderate" governor of Virginia using his reassuring voice to discuss letting born-alive infants die comfortably that most third-trimester abortions are not performed for reasons of fetal or maternal health.https://t.co/cKCkDtYwGH

“By now you have heard about the abortion bill, or seen the video,” Adams said in an email. “I vaguely remember signing on to this, and I did this in solidarity with my colleague and as a symbolic gesture for a woman’s right to choose.”
“I did not read a bill I agreed to co-patron and that wasn’t smart or typical. I will work harder and be better for it,” she added. “I am sorry that I did not exercise due diligence before this explosion of attention; had I done so, I would not have co-patroned.”

GRAHAM ON HANNITY: My Bill Would Limit On-Demand Abortions ‘After 20 Weeks’
Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on the growing trend of state governments permitting late-term abortions until the point of delivery; saying only seven countries on the planet permit the procedure after 20 weeks.
“I don’t think that was about abortion in the Commonwealth of Virginia. You once sponsored a bill I agree with,” said Hannity.
“Only seven nations in the entire world allow abortion on demand after 20 weeks. They’re talking about abortion during the actual birthing,” said Graham.
“My bill says unless the life of the mother’s at stake, a result of rape or incest, you can’t have abortion on demand in the fifth month. Most Americans would be fine with that,” he added.
