Marco Rubio Praises March for Life and Vows to Fight Abortion
With abortion opponents taking part in the March for Life in Washington on Monday, Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio praised their continued opposition to abortion.
“I proudly stand in solidarity with those attending today’s March for Life, as well as all those across the country who share its objectives,” said Rubio on Monday. “On this day, we remember the tragic Roe v. Wade decision, whereby the Supreme Court determined that equal protection and equal rights do not apply to the unborn. In doing so, the court rejected the truth that all of our rights are derived from the self-evident, fundamental right to life.
“As Florida’s senator, I will continue to be a voice for not only winning hearts and minds on life issues but also to support pro-life policies, such as a prohibition on taxpayer-funded abortions,” added Rubio. “I also pledge to support well-qualified judicial nominees who will interpret the laws of our land, not establish new policy from the bench as the Supreme Court did in Roe v. Wade 38 years ago.”
