Pro-life Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio fielded a question on abortion today from a mainstream media reporter attempting to make his pro-life views look extreme. But Rubio turned the question around in an amazing way and used it to highlight Hillary Clinton’s radical pro-abortion views favoring abortion throughout pregnancy without limits.

Reporter: “You’ve mentioned that life begins at conception. Do you believe a fertilized egg has legal protection?”

Rubio: “I believe all life is worthy of the protection of our laws. That’s what I believe.”

Rubio: “I believe that it’s outrageous that Hillary Clinton supports partial-birth abortion, which is a gruesome process that’s been outlawed in the United States but she supports it as a process that should be legal. I believe that a child, an unborn child at 24, 25 weeks who is viable outside the womb, it should not be legal to abort. Hillary Clinton believes it should be. She’s in the minority on both of those issues.”

Rubio: “These are radical issues and I look forward to exposing them in the general election.”
