Marco Rubio's position on rape, incest exceptions for abortion in the spotlight

26

October

The struggles of Jeb Bush have pundits rethinking who will emerge as the Republican establishment alternative to 2016 outsiders like Ben Carson and Donald Trump.

A name that keeps surfacing: Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.

Rubio is the "candidate who seems to be in the cat-bird’s seat right now," said ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. Stephanopoulos asked liberal pundit and former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm if Rubio has Democrats worried.

Not really, Granholm said. "He’s one of the most extreme," she said.

"For example, he doesn’t agree with a woman’s right to choose even in the case of rape or incest," Granholm said.

We previously looked into some of Rubio’s statements and votes regarding abortion. Does he oppose abortion in the case of rape or incest?
