This week, a coalition of pro-life and faith-based groups — most based in Texas — are coming together under the banner Texas Loves Life.

Both candidates appeared separately Sunday on George Stephanopoulos' "This Week" to discuss their views on the life-ending procedure. The debate began when Stephanopoulos asked Florida Sen.

Rubio responded by saying that although he believes abortion to be a "human rights issue," he would consider exceptions, such as the health of the mother, when approving a law. more >>
