Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (CIANA) and co-sponsored six pieces of legislation which commit to protecting the sanctity of life.
 
“There is no human right more fundamental and more sacred than the right to life. Every single human being is entitled to the protection of our laws from the beginning of life to the end. Every year, scores of men and women of all ages visit our nation’s capital to peacefully march for the rights of people who cannot speak for themselves, countless babies who have yet to be, or will never be born. Sadly, since the Supreme Court’s erroneous Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, the lives of roughly 60 million babies have been terminated, denying them the right to life. I pray, and stand with those gathering in Washington this week, that the right to life for every human will one day be respected.”
