Rubio Slams Senate Democrats for Failure to Protect Life

Apr 27, 2022 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement after the Senate rejected his joint resolution under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to overturn the Biden Administration’s 2021 Final Rule on the Title X Family Planning Program. The Final Rule reversed the Trump Administration’s 2019 ban on federal funding to entities, such as Planned Parenthood, that provide abortion referrals to pregnant mothers. 35 Republican senators have joined this resolution since its introduction on March 17, 2022. Rubio spoke on the Senate floor ahead of the vote.

“President Biden’s rule is an assault on the most sacred and fundamental human right, the right to life,” Rubio said. “It is disgraceful that Democrats voted to use tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to promote abortion instead of reinstating commonsense safeguards that protect life and ensure families have the resources they need to thrive. I will never stop advocating for the unborn.”
