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.”

Now Senator Rubio has to prove he means what he says by standing up for a right to health care. Because we don't have a right to life if we don't have a right to healthcare. And we can't pick and choose who's required to provide it for others.

Thank you, Sen. Rubio, for standing up for life and for the God-given (and Constitutionally guaranteed) rights of all human beings, from conception to natural death.

In spite of activist judges in 1973, the Constitution does actually provide legal protection for the unborn. In the Preamble, it says, “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves AND OUR POSTERITY” (posterity = our descendants not yet born).

Let’s continue to work toward secure the blessings of life to all our posterity, especially those 1.1 million/year who are in danger of being killed before they are born.

The Fourteenth Amendment clarifies citizenship: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside." Clearly, citizenship begins at birth.

Under Obamacare, we have a new paradox: If the government can assert an interest in our health care and intrude in the privacy of our consultation with our doctors, then it clearly has penetrated the shield the high court found to preclude government regulation of (banning) abortions. You can't have both Obamacare and Roe v. Wade.
