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.
#Trumpcare puts MILLIONS at risk, & yet the GOP claims to be pro-life? Join us from 12-1PM EST to call them out w/ #WhatsProLifeAbout!— NARAL (@NARAL)1499436062.0
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.'"
