Marco Rubio Doubles Down On NO Abortion Exceptions
I have to wonder if making extreme statements and then not backing off them is a product of the Trumpization of politics.
Rubio called into Glenn Beck’s radio program today and reiterated his position that abortion ought to be outlawed, including in cases of rape or incest, predicting that within 100 years, people will look back on legal abortion with disbelief.
“I believe a human being is entitled to life, irrespective of the circumstances in which that human being was conceived and so forth,” the Florida Republican said. “Now I recognize that other people don’t hold that view and in order to save lives in this country, I have supported bills that had to have exceptions in them, and I know a lot of people who are pro-life but support exceptions because they feel it goes too far.”
“I personally feel very, very strongly that every human life is entitled to the protection of our laws,” he continued.
Rubio has, however, favored legislation that provides the exceptions he now says he opposes.
