MAGA Hot Mic: U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida
August 30, 2022
Today’s MAGA Hot Mic comes from none other than U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.
Marco Rubio has gone on the record multiple times supporting an abortion ban with no exceptions for rape and incest.
Independent: “Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida said in an interview that he does not support abortion in the cases of rape and incest in an interview Thursday evening.”
Last week, he doubled down on his abortion extremism by saying “I believe we should be protecting from the moment of conception to the moment of birth.” Recognizing life at conception could pave the way to ban certain forms of birth control like IUDs.
NBC News: “Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., told CBS 4 Miami that ‘we should be protecting innocent human life from the moment of conception’”
The Nation: “Rubio’s extreme social conservatism is not a good fit for Florida voters who are focusing on the abortion issue. A July University of South Florida poll found that 57 percent of Floridians disagree with the Supreme Court decision to undermine abortion rights.”
It didn’t stop there. Rubio left the door open on a federal abortion ban in the future, proving to voters exactly what’s at stake in November.
Reporter: “I just want to be clear because it sounds like you said is your position if it could pass, if you had the numbers in the Senate and the House to do this, you would support a bill that would protect life in all forms no matter how it was conceived even in cases of rape and incest. The only reason that you support exceptions is because there are… you don’t have the numbers to do it right now.”
Rubio: “Jim, what I’ve said to you is very clear. I believe that human life is worthy of protection.”
Marco Rubio continues to make clear he is more concerned with pushing the dangerous anti-choice MAGA agenda than the reproductive health of Floridians.
