Rubio Celebrates Life, Calls on Americans to Come Together

Jun 24, 2022 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood, giving elected officials in state legislatures around the country, along with the federal government, the ability to enact policies that protect the life of unborn Americans.  
 
“Today’s decision by the Supreme Court to allow states to regulate abortion was right constitutionally and morally,” Rubio said.
 
“For nearly half a century, a nation founded on God-given rights denied those rights to its most vulnerable citizens and more than 63 million Americans never got the chance to pursue their dreams,” Rubio continued
 
“But we must not only continue to take steps to protect the unborn, we must also do more to support mothers and their babies. I will soon introduce a bill to ensure we do everything we can to give every child the opportunity to fully access the promise of America,” Rubio concluded
 
In May, Rubio announced in a Washington Times op-ed he would introduce legislation to support mothers and their babies:
 
“At the very least, we need to dramatically expand the child tax credit for working families and allow new parents to pull some of their Social Security savings forward to finance time off of work. That alone will not be enough, though. Expectant mothers — especially those who are surprised by, and unprepared for, pregnancy — require additional support in the form of mentorship, counseling, medical care and more.”
