After this question, Holt then asked Warren if she would put any limits on abortion. Warren said she would not.
"I would make certain that every woman has access to the full range of reproductive health care services, and that includes birth control, it includes abortion, it includes everything for a woman," she said.
Warren accused states of working to "undermine Roe" by passing restrictions on abortion, and that "it's not enough to expect the courts to protect us."
"We now have an America where most people support Roe v. Wade," said Warren. "We need to make that a federal law."
Massachusetts, which Warren represents in the Senate, passed the "Negating Archaic Statutes Targeting Young Women Act" or "NASTY Women" Act in 2018. The NASTY Women Act codified Roe v. Wade into law and overturned a dormant Massachusetts law that criminalized abortion.
Kristen Day, executive director of Democrats for Life of America, said after the deabte that "the abortion lobby has too much power within the Democratic Party and is successfully alienating Democratic voters with the pressure for all candidates to take an abortion extremisim approach."
Day told CNA that she hopes the issue of pro-life support is raised on Thursday, the second night of Democratic primary debates. That debate will feature Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), who has said that she does not believe there is a place for pro-life Democrats in the party.
"Tonight, we would like to see one of the moderators ask, by show of hands, if anyone wants pro-life Democrats to vote for them," said Day.
Day believes that the focus on abortion will end up harming the Democratic Party in their effort to win the presidency in 2020.
"An abortion extremist cannot defeat President Trump, because the independents and Democrats who oppose abortion will simply stay home or vote third party," she said.
