During a pit stop in Iowa, Elizabeth Warren stopped by a lemonade stand run by two 11-year-old girls.
“Stopped for a quick drink at a lemonade stand in Harlan, Iowa. When life gives you lemons, make big structural change!” Warren tweeted.

The Washington Free Beacon reported that Warren paid 11-year-olds Sienna Michels and Audrey Billings $7 for seven cups of lemonade and donated $3 to the girls.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that while at the lemonade stand, Warren urged Michels and Billings to tell their parents to vote for her. They were excited to meet a 2020 presidential candidate and told their parents to vote for Warren.
Michels’ parents were quick to explain Warren’s stance on abortion and why it was against their family’s values. The parents and girls came to the conclusion that it was best to donate the money to the March for Life Education and Defense Fund.
“My daughter told us she wanted us to vote for her,” Michels’ father told the Washington Free Beacon. “We talked about the abortion part of things and said maybe we should donate money to stop abortion, and my daughter was all for that.”
Warren holds a very pro-choice stance. Under her campaign website’s “Protect A Women’s Right to Choose” category, Warren writes, “Extremist Republican lawmakers are trying to turn back the clock and deny women access to reproductive health care.”
Warren’s plans for women’s health issues include:
- Creating “federal, statutory rights that parallel the constitutional right in Roe v. Wade.”
This means essentially codifying Roe v. Wade.
- “Pass federal laws to preempt state efforts that functionally limit access to reproductive health care.”
This means Warren wants to take away states rights to limit abortions.
- “Guarantee reproductive health care coverage as part of all health coverage.”
This means Warren wants to include abortion as part of her Medicare for All plan.
- “Ensure equal access and reproductive justice.”
This means Warren wants to make it easier for all people to access abortion facilities.
These plans surely do not align with the mission of the March for Life, a group whose mission is to end the practice of abortion.
Warren’s campaign has yet to respond or comment on the subject.
