Marco Rubio and Val Demings clash over Roe’s knockdown against Wade
With the United States Supreme Court consider reversing Roe vs. Wadethe two top candidates running for the U.S. Senate from Florida highlight their differences on abortion.
This week the Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America Nominee Fund supported the United States Senator Marco RubioR-Fla., for a third term.
“Senator Marco Rubio is a formidable pro-life champion. We are very grateful for his voice and proud to support his re-election,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA Pro-Life America. “Sen. Rubio fully understands the stakes of this moment for countless unborn children and mothers. He is an eloquent and effective advocate for common sense pro-life protections, standing up to the abortion lobby for Floridians on many occasions. pro-abortion Democrats like Val Demings desperately wants to exclude people from the debate over our national abortion-on-demand policy until birth — she even votes against life-saving care for babies who survive abortions.
The organization also highlighted Rubio’s record on abortion, including his support for the overturning of Roe v. Wade, including support for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that the Supreme Court is currently reviewing.
“Rubio earned an A+ on SBA Pro-Life America’s national pro-life scorecard for his impeccable pro-life record. He introduced amendments to ban the abortion giant Planned parenthood to receive forgivable loans under the Paycheck Protection Program. He also introduced the Interstate Child Abortion Notification Act to protect underage girls from exploitation. He is a co-sponsor of Law for the Protection of the Unborn Child Capable of Sufferingthe Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Actthe Support and expectation of value (TO REGISTER) Mothers and Babies Actand the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act. He signed the congressional pro-life amicus brief in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, in which the court will assess whether the limits of pre-viability of abortion are constitutional. Rubio fiercely defended the right to express pro-life opinions and fought against unjust censorship,” the band noted this week.
WE Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., is the heavy favorite to win the Democratic nomination to challenge Rubio in November. She highlighted her commitment to Roe v. Wade last month.
“The Supreme Court will likely overturn Roe v. Wade in the coming months – and when it does, at least 36 million women in more than 28 states will lose access to the fundamental right to make personal decisions about their own bodies” , Demings insisted. “This is an appalling decision that sets back women’s rights almost 50 years, bringing our country back to a time when women had no choice but to undergo dangerous clandestine procedures.
“This is a coordinated attack on a basic human right that the GOP has been planning for decades. I will never stop fighting for reproductive choice — and if I win this Senate race, Democrats can use our expanded pro-choice majority to federally codify the right to abortion.
