"This is a group that is being injured every single day", Warren said.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren hit back at President Donald Trump for his latest "Pocahontas slam" by bringing up sexual violence committed against native American women. "I'm not running for president in 2020".

A directory of law professors listed Warren as a minority from 1986 to 1995, just before she joined Harvard Law School. And his family was bitterly opposed to that because she was part Native American. "And the American government is doing nothing about this".

Warren, up for re-election in November, on Friday told Carrie Saldo, host of WGBY's "Connecting Point" the story told by her parents and grandparents that her mother was part Native American "was just fine for my brothers and me".

"I know who I am". At a Saturday rally in Pennsylvania to boost GOP special election candidate Rick Saccone, Trump alluded to a potential run by Warren, saying that "ratings" for news media companies would go down if she or Senator Bernie Sanders ran on the Democratic ticket.

"I never used my family tree to get a break or get ahead", she said.

Passive euthanasia is permissible
Even when the outcome is known and death is inevitable, it's a tough call for not just the family but also the doctors. The Supreme Court has framed strict guidelines and formed a medical panel for passive euthanasia .

In February, Warren directly addressed the controversy around her claims of heritage in a surprise speech to the National Congress of American Indians, where she promised to fight for issues of importance to Native Americans.

Asked repeatedly if she would serve a full six-year term if re-elected, Warren said she was not running for president and would fight "for the people of MA, and for the people across this country". "I know who I am", Warren said Sunday on NBC News' "Meet the Press", in comments carried by the Hill.

The Democrat, who had reportedly claimed family ties to Cherokee and DE tribes, said she was unaware that the university had promoted her as a minority professor, according to the Associated Press. She said "no one" could take that away from her.

An editorial this month in Massachusetts's Berkshire Eagle urged Warren to buy a DNA test for $99 to resolve the issue once and for all.

Certainly not a DNA test that might actually establish who she is. In an age of hypersensitivity to claims of cultural appropriation, it's odd that she thinks her family lore ought to be enough to put this to rest.
