Twitter became a battleground between conservatives and liberals yet again when NARAL, an abortion advocacy group, began a "hashtag" game meant to smear the pro-life movement.

Pro-abortion forces began tweeting under the hashtag #WhatsProLifeAbout, criticizing the Republican party, and mocking the pro-life cause. Failed politician and Rush Limbaugh foe Sandra Fluke joined in, tweeting, "Trumpcare savagely attacks life saving services yet GOP claims to be 'pro-life.'"

But very soon, conservatives and pro-life advocates began taking over the hashtag and sending messages to combat the pro-abortion narrative.

NARAL celebrated that their hashtag was trending on Twitter, meaning it was among the top topics tweeted, but many of the twitter messages were from conservatives.
