Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) promised on Sunday that he would sign an abortion ban as president that provided exceptions for rape even though he preferred for pregnant victims to have their rapists’ babies.
Following a Saturday night’s Republican Presidential Debate on ABC News, host George Stephanopoulos noted during a Sunday interview that Rubio had been hammered for his belief that abortion was wrong even in cases of rape or incest.
“Abortion to me is not a political issue,” Rubio insisted. “It’s a human rights issue. And so, if [Jeb Bush] wants to make it a political issue, that’s his right. For me, it’s not.”
“I do require an exception for life of the mother because I’m pro-life,” he continued. “Number two, as I’ve said, if they pass a law in Congress that has exceptions, I’ll sign it. Because I want to save lives.”
“What do you say to that mom when you look her in the eye?” the ABC host wondered.
“It’s a terrible situation,” Rubio replied. “I mean, a crisis pregnancy, especially as a result of something as horrifying as that, I’m not telling you it’s easy. I’m not here saying it’s an easy choice. It’s a horrifying thing that you’ve just described.”
“I get it,” he added. “I really do. And that’s why this issue is so difficult. But I believe a human being, an unborn child has a right to live, irrespective of the circumstances of which they were conceived. And I know that the majority of Americans don’t agree with me on that.”
“And that’s why any law that passed will almost certainly have exceptions. And I’ll sign it.”as egregious as that is the sad part is thee are republican females who will still vote for them did they think this could never happen to them and that it's the ones who it happens to problem????????????????? i love what former sect of state Madeline Albright said "“There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”
what disturbs me is that mythical liberal press i checked several on this story and they misquote her in the title but printed actual quote in article one doing it okay right wing publications okay but all of them there should be printed rebuttals on page one and lead in's on video correcting that. we don't know how many will stall at the title and not notice the content because the title is indicative of republican red meat.
as to Rubio does he feel the same if his wife or daughters were raped and impregnated and would he be there for them and help raise the product of their rape and them in their psychological angst???????????????
