In an interview with The Associated Press, Rubio said he unequivocally backs abortion exceptions when the life of the mother is in danger. He said he also would back legislation with allowances for cases of rape and incest — even though he personally doesn’t support those exceptions. “I, as president, will sign a bill that has exceptions,” he said. “I’ve supported bills that have exceptions.”

The Carolina Pregnancy Center, which counsels pregnant women and encourages them not to seek abortions, is a typical stop for Republican presidential candidates in this early primary state.
