PPFA’s Political Arm says Sen. Rubio is their “worst nightmare”

Like most of the Republican presidential candidates, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fl.) is an unabashed, straight-forward pro-lifer. Why he garners particular hatred and fear from pro-abortionists is a subject for another post.

But our brief discussion here touches on one example of why Dawn Laguens, vice president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said that “Marco Rubio’s American dream is a woman’s worst nightmare,” adding, “If he had his way — women wouldn’t be able to access safe, legal abortion — even in cases of rape and incest.”

Laguens’ statement Wednesday came one day after Senator Rubio released a video ad in which he excoriated President Obama on a host of issues.

Pertinent to pro-lifers was when he said, “Instead of fighting to fund our troops, he fights to fund Planned Parenthood.”

You might say Sen. Marco believes Mr. Obama is the babies’ worst nightmare.

This ad undoubtedly struck a nerve.

As we posted both yesterday and today, the Republican-led Congress passed a bill that would block most federal funds from going to Planned Parenthood, and repeal many parts of Obamacare, including the program that provides tax-based subsidies for about 1,000 health plans that cover elective abortions.

Sen. Rubio ended with this:

“America needs a real commander in chief and a president who will keep us safe.”

And unlike President Obama, pro-life Republican presidential candidates such as Sen. Rubio would include unborn babies among the “us” they would keep safe.
