Elizabeth Warren became a hero for abortion rights advocates when she became the first woman to run for president and then the first senator from Massachusetts to do so.
But she was also a vocal critic of Roe v.
Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide.
She said that the U.S. should not allow the right to abortion to be used to punish women for seeking abortions.
But as she sought re-election to the Senate in 2018, she also faced criticism for her stance.
Warren’s supporters accused her of hypocrisy, saying that she voted to ban abortion at the time, but later changed her mind and supported the ban.
She became a rallying cry for those who oppose abortion in her home state, and was also one of the first to voice her opposition to Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the military.
The most recent debate between Warren and her opponent, Democratic nominee Joe Manchin, focused on whether Warren was being hypocritical when she voted for the ban on the transgender military service.
According to a Washington Post/ABC News poll released last month, 52 percent of Americans think the current ban on trans troops is a good idea, and 45 percent oppose it.
In contrast, 37 percent of Democrats and 51 percent of independents agree.
