Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris tweeted Thursday that “society is judged based on how it treats children,” but the California senator has also said she wants to “protect every woman’s constitutional right to abortion.”

Harris re-tweeted a Bloomberg article Thursday that criticized President Donald Trump’s “policy of separating migrant children from their families” resulting in minors suffering “fear, post-traumatic stress and other mental health problems,” which cites a watchdog. She captioned the tweet warning the Trump administration that it will be judged harshly for how it treats children.

A society is judged based on how it treats children,” she tweeted. “This Administration will be judged harshly.” (RELATED: Harris Talks Health Care For Babies. Her Plan Funds Abortion)

But Harris has a history of denouncing legislation that would protect unborn babies — and her Medicare-for-all plan promises to provide comprehensive reproductive health care.

“Medicare for All will cover all medically necessary services, including emergency room visits, doctor visits, vision, dental, hearing aids, mental health and substance use disorder treatment and comprehensive reproductive health care services,” Harris said in a July 29 explanation of her Medicare plans.

Harris has also voted against an abortion bill protecting the lives of unborn babies after 20 weeks of pregnancy and voted down the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act.

The Harris campaign has not responded to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment on taxpayer-funded abortion.
