Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) celebrated her birthday in South Carolina at a Planned Parenthood Action Fund event focused on expanding and protecting women’s right to abortions, according to Hot Air.
“What better way to celebrate my birthday than right here with Planned Parenthood?” Warren asked, apparently without irony.
Warren’s birthday celebration took place at an event called “We Decide: 2020 Electoral Membership Forum,” described as “an event where Planned Parenthood Action Fund members and 20 presidential candidates will come together to take on tough questions about the candidates’ plans to protect and expand access to reproductive health care—including access to safe, legal abortion.”
Twenty Democratic presidential candidates appeared at the Forum on Saturday. A majority of the candidates were already in South Carolina for Rep. Jim Clyburn’s fish fry event.
When she wasn’t celebrating her birthday, Warren was busy spouting hyperbole about what might happen if restrictions are placed on women’s ability to get abortions.
“You’re not going to lock women back in the kitchen,” Warren said. “You’re not going to tell us what to do.”
Joe Biden was there, and faced some uncomfortable questions after his seemingly inconsistent recent remarks on abortion, including the Hyde Amendment. Biden denied flip-flopping when asked about his “mixed record” on the issue.
“I’m not sure about the mixed record part,” Biden said.
Biden’s campaign (and the candidate’s own voting record) indicated he supported the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal funding for abortion in most circumstances.
After being abused by pro-abortion advocates for a day or so, Biden came out and said he opposed the amendment. Biden has claimed that he is personally a pro-life person as a Catholic.
