GOP debate: Marco Rubio claims its in the Constitution that abortion should be illegal....

This man should be nowhere near politics. What a creep and an asshole.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio took the hardest of all possible hardline positions on the question of womens rights Thursday night, arguing that abortions should be illegal even in cases of rape and incest.

If you believe that life begins at conception, as you say you do, she asked, how do you justify ending a life just because it begins violently through no fault of the baby.

I dont think thats an accurate accounting of my view, Rubio replied.

You dont favor a rape and incest exception? Kelly asked.

I have never said that, Rubio replied. Ive never advocated that. Ive advocated passing a law that says that all human life, at every stage of its development, is worthy of protection in fact, I believe that law already exists.

Its called the Constitution of the United States.

6. Pretty much

 

Their anything they wish to claim to be true irrespective of actual facts will be found in some part of their version of either the constitution or some bible somewhere..they will cherry pick some statement(usually only a small set of words ) totally out of context and say it means whatever they choose it to mean.

5. All are worthy of protection? And what happens when those judgements collide?

How about death-penalties?
Or sending soldiers into war?
Or going to war in general?
How about insufficient medical care?
Or pregnancies that threaten the life of the mother?
Or environmental pollution?

And what does human "life" mean? Merely being alive? Or having legal rights? Like the freedom to make your own medical decisions for your own body?

7. The "debate" was a charade

Yes, some gotcha questions, but no follow-up and "candidates" were allowed to veer off into their stump speeches

8. A creep and an asshole

is perfect to describe Rubio. He has total contempt for our gender, and arrogantly believes that males are better at addressing and "fixing" issues relating to women. F@%# him.
