For the second time, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio picks up MAGA Hot Mic honors.
We called out Rubio for saying he would support a federal abortion ban with no exceptions for rape and incest before. Now, he is the cosponsor for a bill that would strip away reproductive rights in all 50 states.
Politico: “Rubio is embracing Graham’s federal abortion ban.”
Politico: “Rubio’s move to sign on to Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) bill is the strongest indication yet that the Republican incumbent appears unconvinced that Rep. Val Demings’ (D-Fla.) consistent pounding of him over the issue is going to harm his bid for a third term.”
Let’s not forget. Marco Rubio has gone on the record multiple times supporting an abortion ban with no exceptions for rape and incest, and the legislation that Rubio is co-sponsoring would allow states to further restrict access to reproductive health care.
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.”
Politico: “Earlier this year, Florida enacted a ban on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, but unlike Graham’s bill, it does not provide for exceptions for rape or incest. The legislation, however, would allow states to enact stricter restrictions. But Rubio’s public support of the federal legislation all but ensures abortion will remain a top issue in Florida’s Senate race.”
Here’s the bottom line: Abortion extremism is the GOP agenda and lawmakers like Rubio continue to make clear they are more concerned with pushing the dangerous anti-choice MAGA agenda than the reproductive freedom of Americans.
