According to Planned Parenthood, when are you the “worst nightmare” for women? When you’re a pro-life presidential candidate who opposes killing babies in abortions and funding the abortion business that sells their body parts for profit.
Rubio’s presidential campaign has a new television ad out taking pro-abortion President Barack Obama to task for doing more to support Planned Parenthood funding and saying he’s rather fund the abortion giant than America’s troops.
Rubio, a pro-life U.S. senator from Florida, knocks the release of 17 more detainees from Guantanamo Bay, as well as the president’s support for Planned Parenthood and tighter gun laws.
“Barack Obama released terrorists from Guantanamo, and now they are plotting to attack us,” Rubio says in the ad. “Instead of fighting to fund our troops, he fights to fund Planned Parenthood.”
“While ISIS is beheading people and burning them in cages, he says climate change is our greatest threat,” Rubio continues.
Now, the abortion company has responded:
Planned Parenthood on Wednesday struck back against Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) one day after he attacked the healthcare organization’s funding.
“Marco Rubio’s American dream is a woman’s worst nightmare,” Dawn Laguens, vice president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said in a statement.
“If he had his way — women wouldn’t be able to access safe, legal abortion — even in cases of rape and incest,” she continued.
“Insurance coverage under the [Affordable Care Act] would be eliminated, and millions would lose access to basic reproductive healthcare at Planned Parenthood.”
Unfortunately for Planned Parenthood, Rubio has no intention of backing down from his opposition to abortion. In a meeting with Iowa pastors last year, Rubio promised that he will never be swayed to support abortion.
“… the issue of life to me is not a political issue. It’s a human rights issue,” the pro-life candidate told the group. “If I were to change my position on those issues or even waver on them, I would now be in direct conflict with my church and I would be in direct conflict with what I teach my children. And at that point, I can tell you then I’ve lost the essence of who I am. So that’s just not going to happen. I feel strongly about those issues especially on the issue of life.”
Previously, Rubio won applause from pro-lifers after he fielded a question on abortion 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.
