Hillary Clinton took to Twitter on Friday to accuse Republicans of wanting to starve ‘certain babies.’
As Fox News reports:
Clinton made the remark in response to a statement from Republican Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas expressing outrage that baby formula was being shipped to border migrant camps despite an ongoing national shortage.
The Republican, "pro-life" position is now that certain babies should starve. https://t.co/298zHaEESX

Clinton has been outspokenly opposed to the expected overturn of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court. The former senator has aggressively pushed back against the pro-life movement since the court’s draft opinion leaked, accusing lawmakers of seeking to “control women” and forming an “extreme bloc.”
Pallets of baby formula are being sent to holding facilities at the border amid a shortage that has seen many parents unable to find it at their local stores, according to a GOP representative.

The Biden White House has claimed that alleviating the shortage is now a ‘top priority’ for the administration.
