Sen. Marco Rubio slammed the practice of abortion Wednesday and praised the annual March For Life that takes place Friday in Washington, D.C.

"I believe there is no human right more fundamental and more sacred than the right to life, and that every single human being is entitled to the protection of our laws," the Florida Republican said.

"Every year scores of men and women visit our National Mall to peacefully march for the rights of people who cannot yet march or speak for themselves, countless babies who have yet to be born. Sadly, since the Supreme Court's erroneous decision in 1973, the lives of roughly 60 million babies have been terminated, denying them the right to life.

"It's a simple fact that the vast majority of these deaths were for reasons that had nothing to do with rape, incest, or the life of the mother being endangered. This is an atrocity, and I pray with those gathering in Washington this week that it ends soon."

Rubio added he has introduced a bill that would close a loophole that allows minors to have an abortion without their parents' consent.

"This violates a parent's right to know, and makes it easier for criminals to cover up rape," Rubio said.

Last Saturday's Women's March on Washington, meanwhile, received 129 times more media coverage than the 2016 March For Life did. The Women's March was a protest against President Donald Trump, and one of its themes was being pro-choice.

Massive crowds are expected for Friday's March For Life in the nation's capital.
