Bumper Crop: Rubio says he would tell rape victims that rape “is a terrible situation”, but force the victim to carry the baby anyway because “an unborn child has a right to live, irrespective of the circumstances of which they were conceived.” He would get a group of old white guys to examine each raped baby factory and determine if she was wearing a too-short skirt or otherwise caused the rape, such as by having breasts.
