New Proposal From Sen. Rubio Seeks To Limit Federal Pregnancy Programs To Biological Women

Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) has issued a proposal that seeks to amend a bill in the Senate in order to limit federal pregnancy programs to only biological females, which was heavily opposed by all 50 democrats as of Sunday.

Rubio shared the talks of his proposed amendment via a recently released video that went out on Twitter.

“Mr. President, the only people who are capable of being pregnant are biological females, and therefore I think federal pregnancy programs should be limited to biological females. And that’s what this would do,” Rubio stated as part of his comments while speaking on the Senate floor.

“A few minutes ago I looked back across 5,500 years of human history. So far, every single pregnancy has been a biological female. So, therefore, the only thing I am trying to do is make sure that federal law is clear that since every pregnancy that’s ever existed has been a biological female that our federal laws reflect that and our federal pregnancy programs are available to the only people who are capable of getting pregnant, biological females, very simple,” he expressed.

Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) put out their own strong rebuttal in the wake of the speech from Rubio on the floor.

“When we are facing challenges in this country and helping our constituents to lower costs, it is outrageous that Republicans are trying to define pregnancy of all things on this floor on this day after hours of voting on amendments. I urge a no vote,” stated Murray.

Rubio also spoke out against the gathered Democrats focusing on all-night voting focused on a new climate change bill while Americans struggle to deal with rising crime rates, inflation rates, and an expanding border crisis.

“While working Americans are struggling with high prices, worried about the border and terrorized by crime the Senate is spending all night voting on a democrat climate change bill,” stated Rubio via social media.

He argued that the average American is “being ignored, disrespected, and completely, completely obliterated by a bill that does absolutely nothing for them.”

The proposal from Rubio comes in the wake of strong statements this past month issued by Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) about the issue.

Video footage from a press conference in July from Putnam County, Florida, highlighted the governor addressing liberal activist claims that men can be pregnant.

“Can we actually agree that women get pregnant and not men?” he expressed. “It’s just unbelievable some of the stuff that you’re hearing about that.”

Additionally, DeSantis spoke out about the issue when one biological male simmer, Lia Thomas, swam in the NCAA Women’s Swimming and Diving Championship.

“You have a swimmer that swims on the men’s team for three years and then, all of a sudden, says they’re gonna identify as a woman swimmer and swim against the women,” expressed DeSantis.

“And then they give that the national championship over these women who’ve been training for a long time,” he went on. “And the second place was actually from Florida, who had won a silver medal in the Olympics. So, she got robbed of a national championship because the NCAA is really trying to make us complicit in something that’s false.”
