What better way to celebrate one’s birthday than with the organization that prevents people from having one.
According to LifeNews, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) commemorated the day in which her mother delivered her upon the world by posting a video of herself partying with Planned Parenthood workers.
“What better way to celebrate my birthday than right here with Planned Parenthood?” Warren asks in the video, seemingly unaware of the sheer irony of that statement.
“The video shows Warren surrounded by Planned Parenthood officials including Planned Parenthood Action’s National Political Director Yasmin Radjy and PP President Leana Wen, who openly advocates for abortion all the way through the third trimester and supports using taxpayer funds to do it,” reports LifeNews.
Later, Elizabeth Warren publicly thanked Planned Parenthood for celebrating her birthday while vowing to keep up the fight to prevent unborn children from having birthdays. “I was glad to celebrate with you, and I’m proud to fight alongside you for reproductive justice!” she said.
The grotesque nature of celebrating one’s birthday with Planned Parenthood was not lost on social media users, who excoriated her post on Twitter.
“Celebrating your birthday in a place where millions of babies have been deprived of theirs. Classy,” said one Twitter user.
“Warren celebrates her birthday with those who make a fortune preventing millions of babies from having a birthday?!?” asked another user.
“That’s funny, I thought Planned Parenthood would celebrate Termination day. Not birthdays.” said another.
Though the Warren celebration is enough to make any pro-lifer coil up in despair, Planned Parenthood has done far worse in the celebration of public figures’ birthdays. In 2017, for instance, the organization celebrated Vice President Mike Pence’s birthday by asking for donations in his name.
In Pence’s home state of Indiana, a man in “really short shorts,” a.k.a “Mike Hot Pence,” impersonated the vice president at a mock “birthday party” where people handed out cupcakes to raise money for Planned Parenthood.
“Planned Parenthood is under attack, and on Mike Pence’s birthday, our present to him is a strong showing of support for healthcare and for Planned Parenthood,” said Wanda Savala, the public affairs manager for Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky.
Sen. Warren has taken an extreme stance on the abortion question for the 2020 election and even supports its funding via taxpayer dollars, as evidenced by her fierce criticisms of former Vice President Joe Biden when he initially opposed the Hyde Amendment (a position he has since reversed).
“Here’s how I look at this: I’ve lived in an America where abortions were illegal. And understand this: Women still got abortions,” said of the Hyde Amendment. “Now, some got lucky on what happened, and some got really unlucky on what happened. But the bottom line is they were there.”
“Understand this: Women of means will still have access to abortions,” she continued. “Who won’t will be poor women, will be working women, will be women who can’t afford to take off three days from work, will be very young women who have been raped, will be women who have been molested by someone in their own family. We do not pass laws to take away that freedom from the women who are most vulnerable. It’s been the law for a while, and it’s been wrong for a long time.”
