Warren said at The Atlantic's Washington Ideas Forum that Republicans want "to make it impossible for a woman who is facing one of the most difficult decisions of her life — they want to find a way to make it harder on her to get the healthcare she needs."

"They're just wrong on this and they're going to be in real trouble on this," she added.
 
Warren was criticizing conservatives' efforts to stop federal funding for Planned Parenthood following the release of controversial, edited videos related to compensation received for fetal tissue donations.
 
"All I can say is that we've been in that world before ... I'm talking about a world where women died," she said. "I'm talking about a world where women committed suicide rather than go forward with a pregnancy they could not handle and what the Republicans are saying is that they want to go back. And what I want to make clear is that we are not going back — not now, not ever."
 
Some conservatives had threatened to shut down the government over funding of Planned Parenthood.

"What is the first thing they have to stand up to do? Defund Planned Parenthood. That is so out of touch with reality and so out of touch with what it means to govern this country, that they think they've got to try to argue something so that they can move women back," Warren said.
