During the February 6 GOP debate, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, said that Hillary Clinton “believes that all abortions should be legal, even on the due date of that unborn child.”
Despite historical evidence proving this statement to be accurate in both intent and fact, PolitiFact’s Linda Qiu wrote that Rubio’s claim was “false,” concluding that “Clinton does not believe that all abortion should be legal. Instead, she’s said she supports restrictions on late-term abortions except in cases of rape, incest and when the mother’s life and health are in danger.”
As the below fact-check shows, however, it is Qiu’s claim that is factually inaccurate – along with multiple issues of bias and sloppy use of terminology.
LifeSiteNews sent a variation of the below fact-check to PolitiFact editor Angie Holan, urging her to update the piece and to change the ranking of Rubio’s claim from “False” to “True.” Multiple communications yielded no response by press time.
Clinton does support abortion until the day of birth
