Marco Rubio Appears to Have Compared Abortion to Vehicular Manslaughter

In a virtual town hall Monday, Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio seemed to compare abortion to vehicular manslaughter.

“In most states in this country, if a drunk driver runs a red light and kills a pregnant woman, they are charged with two counts of vehicular manslaughter,” Rubio told Florida attorney John Stemberger, leader of the Florida Family Policy Council, a Christian advocacy group. “One for the child and one for the mother. So we are already, in other areas of the law, recognize that that is a human life worthy of protection of our laws.”

In his comments, captured on video obtained by VICE News, Rubio also said that abortion ban exceptions meant to protect the health of pregnant people are “a massive loophole.”

“They always say, ‘with the exception of life or health of the mother,’ and that ‘or health’ sounds good, but it’s very nuanced. It’s not throwaway line,” he said. “What it means is, some doctor can come forward and say, ‘Well, I know it’s eight-a-half months, I know that she’s due next week, but I think this would be bad for her mental health, I think it would be bad for her spiritual health, for her psychological, if she went ahead.’ I mean, it’s a massive loophole.”

1. So he wants the government to decide for the doctor

Because every state government is so good at determining the welfare of a mother and fetus.

Just look at all the dead from COVID-19. Yeah, state governments really protected us. Over one million dead and the governments in a lot of states just shrugged. Hospitals overflowing and state governments helped how? By rigging by the true death rate and dropping mask mandates. By sending kids to school to cause another surge in infections.

So, instead of a doctor, if you're a pregnant woman, you get a state official to monitor your womb. They know best. Just let Rubio decide if you or your spouse need to live.
