In response to Marco Rubio's comments this week that women infected with Zika shouldn't be allowed to have abortions, Orlando congressman Alan Grayson told the New Metro Times that Rubio should at least be willing to adopt every baby born with microcephaly.

In an interview with Miami News Times' Brittany Shammas, Grayson tore into Rubio, calling his views "utterly immoral."
“It’s appalling to me to think that he would make those kinds of decisions for other human beings, to basically consign pregnant women to being baby-making machines, followed by 80-year-long caregivers for children with deformed brains,” Grayson said. “It’s not his decision to make.”
"We’ll see people getting sick, we’ll see some people die, and we’ll see a very substantial number of Zika babies born who will be handicapped for their entire lives, dependent for their entire lives,” said Grayson. .
