During the Republican presidential debate last night, pro-life Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis reiterated his pro-life views and said America needs to “promote a culture of life.”
“We’re better off when we can promote a culture of life,” DeSantis told the audience. “I stand for a culture of life.”
DeSantis told the story of a mom choosing life to emphasize that abortion is unnecessary.
“I’m reminded of a story of a young mother who was struggling in Jamaica about 40 years ago, 45 years ago. She was counseled to not have a baby because she was poor. [The] baby won’t have an opportunity. And she came close to having an abortion but she decided to have the baby, born poor in Jamaica,” he said.
“The reason I know that story is because that baby girl ended up immigrating to the state of Florida, becoming a lawyer and a judge. And I appointed her to the Florida Supreme Court in August of 2022,” he added.
The woman DeSantis was referring to is Judge Renatha Francis.

DeSantis urged the pro-life movement to redouble their efforts to oppose pro-abortion ballot measures like Issue 1 in Ohio.
“At the same time, I understand that some of these states are doing it a little bit different. Texas is not going to do it the same as New Hampshire. Iowa is not necessarily going to do the same as Virginia. So you got to work from the bottom up. You got to do a better job on these referenda. I think of all the stuff that’s happened to the pro-life cause, they have been caught flat footed on these referenda,” he said.
