BREAKING: Pro-life Marco Rubio defeats pro-abort Patrick Murphy: wins Florida reelection
November 8, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – One of the strongest voices for the unborn in American politics, Sen. Marco Rubio, won re-election to his Florida U.S. Senate seat over Rep. Patrick Murphy. It is a crucial win for keeping the pro-life majority in the Senate.
Rubio is easily one of the most eloquent defenders of life and a Christian worldview—as many Republicans will remember from his presidential run (see this GOP debate clip). The pro-life Susan B. Anthony List knocked on over 500,000 doors in Florida to safeguard the Senator’s seat.
On the homosexual issue, Rubio has been solidly conservative, with some rhetorical slips that raised pro-family eyebrows, such as when he opined that homosexuals are "born that way."
Nevertheless, he has been blasted by Human Rights Campaign—the nation’s largest homosexual-transgender lobby group—as “consistently on the wrong side of equality.”
