In consecutive tweets on Tuesday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) declared that "every child" deserves what’s needed to "grow and reach their potential" and, then, that a state without abortion would be a civil rights violation.

First, while touting her “Family Bill of Rights” initiative, Sen. Gillibrand argued that every child deserves "the same resources and opportunities" to develop:

"The first three years of a child’s life are the most crucial for cognitive development, directly informing educational success as they grow up. Every child deserves the same resources and opportunities to learn, grow, and reach their potential."

In her next tweet, Gillibrand joined Planned Parenthood in denouncing the possibility that every unborn child might have the opportunity to grow and reach his or her potential in the state of Missouri:

"Leaving an entire state—and 1 million people—without a single abortion provider is the definition of an 'undue burden' on access. That makes it unconstitutional. This is an attack on Missourians' civil rights, and it cannot be allowed to stand."
