Senate Democrats rejected an amendment by U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) that would have clarified, for the purposes of maternal and infant-related program resources, that only women can be pregnant.
- “Federal funding should reflect reality: only women can get pregnant. Unfortunately, it looks like my Democrat colleagues don’t trust ‘the science’ after all.” — Senator Rubio
Rubio made the case for his amendment and 5,500 years of recorded human history on the Senate floor.
