Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Saturday he was fed up with Republicans who caved when pressured over their stance on abortion.
“I’m tired of us retreating on this issue,” he said at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition summit in Waukee, Iowa.
“We need other Republicans,” he argued of his party’s failures on the issue.
“I’m going to push back,” Paul vowed. “I’m going to be a key part of this and keep talking about it.”
Paul, a 2016 White House hopeful, said Democrats did not have the advantage in the abortion debate. Voter views on reproductive health, he argued, showed Republicans were not properly tackling the issue.
