If nothing else, we should probably give Senator Marco Rubio credit for being honest when it comes to what he plans to do if he becomes President.
On Friday, speaking before the National Right to Life Convention in New Orleans, Rubio railed against Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision which determined women do indeed have a right to an abortion. And Rubio also vowed to restrict the right to choose in the United States and around the world.
Rubio called Roe v. Wade a “historically, egregiously flawed decision,” and said that it “has condoned the taking of innocent life on a massive scale.”
As if that wasn’t enough, Rubio also declared:
“It is fundamentally impossible for America to reach her destiny as a nation founded on the equal rights of all if our government believes an entire segment of the human population doesn’t have a right to exist.”
While he was at it, Rubio also said he would fight to restrict women’s right to reproductive choice “at home and around the world.”
Which makes me wonder: At what point did the Rubio campaign decide to totally write off the votes of the majority of women in this country?
Listen to a bit more of the crap the Florida Senator was slinging in New Orleans like so much gumbo:
“You can judge a cause by the arguments made on both sides. For example, I rarely meet anyone who’s willing to say they’re pro-abortion. They’ll say they’re pro-choice, but almost everyone I’ve met says that they personally disagree with abortion. That alone tells us a little about the basic common sense the issue is built on.”
Don’t you just love how men running for President on the Republican ticket seem to think they have the right to tell women what they can do with their bodies?
I personally subscribe to what former President Bill Clinton said about abortion. He said he believed it should be “safe, legal, and rare.”
But if Marco Rubio is elected President, the first two parts of that statement would no longer be possible.
