Marco Rubio Has Spent Years Attacking Reproductive Freedom

With new reporting indicating the Supreme Court will overturn the decades-long precedent of Roe v. Wade, endangering reproductive freedom and the health care of millions of women across Florida and the country, it’s critical that Floridians know Marco Rubio has long pushed to take away reproductive freedom for women. 

Rubio has called Roe v. Wade a “catastrophe” and promised to support Supreme Court justices who would vote to reverse it.
