“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.
