Marco Rubio turns abortion attack on Hillary Clinton

“Hillary Clinton is an extremist on this issue,” the Florida Republican said Thursday in New Hampshire. “She believes there should be no such thing as an illegal abortion — even on the due date.”

Rubio had been asked about his position on abortion after facing fire on the issue from his own party — accusing him of being too extreme on the topic.

He said he would not “apologize” for being anti-abortion, though he recognizes the complexity of the issue. And then he pivoted straight to Democrats and Clinton.

“And she believes that partial birth abortion should be legal, which is a gruesome procedure that the vast majority of Americans find to be unconscionable,” Rubio said.
