Sanctity of Life - #3629 - Marco Rubio Delivers Rousing Defense of the Unborn - Human Events

Florida senator delivers knockout keynote address to pro-life advocates , supporters. The freshman senator from Florida exhorted a packed grand ballroom at the Washington’s Mandarin Oriental hotel on Wednesday evening to stand up for the unborn, as he delivered the keynote address at the fifth annual Susan B. Anthony List Campaign for Life Gala.  “Yes, a woman should have the right to control what happens to her body, but that right ends when it interferes with another person’s right to live,” said Sen. Marco A. Rubio (R-Fla.), a man on the short list of potential Republican vice presidential candidates.  Rubio, who was raised in a Cuban-Catholic exile family, said in the battle between the right-to-choose and the right-to-life, the only one with a vote is the one with the right-to-choose and the only ones, who can participate in the political process and the ones with right-to-choose.  “An unborn child can’t vote and an unborn child cannot speak,” he said.  “But, actually, they can: you speak for them,” he said.  “In this competition between two competing sets of rights, you are the voice of children, who cannot speak for themselves,” he said.  “For the lives that will never make a difference, in the unknown names of millions of children, whose contributions to our world will never happen because the right-to-life was not respected: You vote for them when you vote. You participate in the political process when you participate,” he said.  “This is who you work for: real people no longer with us, who will never have the chance to do what you or I did – and just as importantly, you are a voice and the vote of countless other children, who have yet to be created, whose life will soon be challenged as well.”  Read more........
