Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie is pro-life and has a strong record as New jersey’s governor of vetoing taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business multiple times. But pro-life voters probably won’t like what he has to say about fellow presidential hopeful Marco Rubio. Christie thinks the Florida senator is just too pro-life on abortion for the voters of New Hampshire.
As The Hill reports, here’s what Christie told MSNBC:
“I will tell you one thing Marco Rubio has done, he has made it very clear that on the issue of pro-life, Marco Rubio is not for an exception for … rape, incest or life of the mother,” Christie said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“Now, you know, I think that’s the kind of position that New Hampshire voters would be really concerned about,” he added.
“I’m pro-life, but I believe that rape, incest and life of the mother – as Ronald Reagan did – should be exceptions to that rule.
Last year, during a Republican debate, Rubio said he supports protecting unborn babies conceived in rape and incest from abortion.
