Megyn Kelly: Senator Rubio. You favor a rape and incest exception to to the abortion ban. Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York just said yesterday, those exceptions are preposterous. He said they discriminate against an entire class of human beings. If you believe that life begins at conception, as you say you do, how do you justify ending a life, just because it begins violently through no fault of the baby?
Senator Marco Rubio: Well, Megyn, first of all, I’m not sure that that’s a correct assessment of my record. I will go on to add that I believe all . . .
Megyn: You don’t favor a rape and an incest . . .
Rubio: I have never said that, and I have never abdicated that. What I have advocated is that we pass a law in this country that says all human life, at every stage of its development, is worthy of protection. And in fact I think that law already exists. It’s called the Constitution of the United States . . . And let me go further: I believe that every single human being is entitled to the protection of our laws, whether they can vote or not, whether they can speak or not, whether they can hire a lawyer or not, whether they have a birth certificate or not, and I think future generations will look back at this history of our country and call us barbarians for murdering millions of babies when we never gave them a chance to live.
