Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said on Friday at the 2015 Values Voter Summit that if he is elected President, Planned Parenthood will not “receive a penny from federal government” by 2020.

“All life is worth protecting because all life comes from God,” Rubio said.

He continued with a list of goals by the end of his first term as President.

“And by 2020 Planned Parenthood doesn’t receive a penny from federal government,” he said.

Being pro-life is a “human rights” issue, he said.

“The pro-life issue is not a political one but one of human rights. It’s the most foundational issue,” Rubio said.
