Claim by Marco Rubio (R): “Val Demings supports abortion up until the moment of birth.”

Politifact rating: Mostly False (Demings said she supports abortion up to “viability,” or when a fetus can survive outside the womb. Fetal viability is generally around 24 weeks of pregnancy. Demings has also said she supports abortion after fetal viability if the pregnancy “threatens the health of the woman,” and voted for a bill that affirmed that stance.)
