Talk about a very black pot calling the kettle black. But that’s exactly what happened when pro-abortion senator Elizabeth Warren challenged Mike Bloomberg on the issue of abortion. In the end, the issue was not the life of the child at all or the sanctity of the womb. Instead, the issue was, “You don’t have the right to tell me to kill my baby. That’s my choice alone.” This is as pathetic as it is absurd.

In the most recent Democratic presidential debate, Warren again claimed that she was fired for being pregnant in 1971 as a special education teacher. She then said to Bloomberg, “At least I didn’t have a boss who said to me, ‘Kill it,’ the way that Mayor Bloomberg is alleged to have said to one of his pregnant employees.”

Bloomberg, for his part denied the allegation, saying, “I never said that, and for the record, if she was a teacher in New York City, she would never have had that problem. We treated our teachers the right way, and the unions will tell you exactly that.”

As for Warren, her strategy was to draw attention to the larger issue of Bloomberg’s alleged treatment of women, adding, “People want a chance to hear from the women who have worked for Mayor Bloomberg.”

This, of course, is a valid issue. How did Bloomberg treat his female employees? What about the non-disclosure agreements? And was he really so crass as to tell a pregnant employee to kill her baby, calling the baby “it”?

The problem is that Elizabeth Warren is the last person to raise a protest about abortion.

She is a passionate supporter of a woman’s right to “kill it.” That she challenged Mayor Bloomberg in such a manner is hypocritical, to say the least.

It would have been more honest had she said, “You don’t get to tell me to kill it. That’s my choice.”

Remember. This is the same Elizabeth Warren who pledged to wear the Planned Parenthood scarf at her inauguration if elected president. (For the record, that scarf should be blood red.)

Too bad she wasn’t wearing that scarf during the debate. The irony would have been thick.
