Getting to Know Ron Paul #3: Abortion

This article is dedicated to Dr. Ron Paul’s stance on abortion.  More info can be found at RonPaul2012.com This is #3 in a series that I am posting on here titled “Getting to Know Ron Paul”.

AN EXPERIENCED PHYSICIAN

As an OB/GYN who delivered over 4,000 babies, Ron Paul knows firsthand how precious, fragile, and in need of protection life is.

Dr. Paul’s experience in science and medicine only reinforced his belief that life begins at conception, and he believes it would be inconsistent for him to champion personal liberty and a free society if he didn’t also advocate respecting the God-given right to life—for those born and unborn.

After being forced to witness an abortion being performed during his time in medical school, he knew from that moment on that his practice would focus on protecting life.  And during his years in medicine, never once did he find an abortion necessary to save the life of a pregnant woman.

As a physician, Ron Paul consistently put his beliefs into practice and saved lives by helping women seek options other than abortion, including adoption.  And as President, Ron Paul will continue to fight for the same pro-life solutions he has upheld in Congress, including:

* Immediately saving lives by effectively repealing Roe v. Wade and preventing activist judges from interfering with state decisions on life by removing abortion from federal court jurisdiction through legislation modeled after his “We the People Act.”

* Defining life as beginning at conception by passing a “Sanctity of Life Act.”

Because he agrees with Thomas Jefferson that it is “sinful and tyrannical” to “compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors,” Ron Paul will also protect the American people’s freedom of conscience by working to prohibit taxpayer funds from being used for abortions, Planned Parenthood, or any other so-called “family planning” program.

The strength of love for liberty in our society can be judged by how we treat the most innocent among us.  It’s time to elect a President with the courage and conviction to stand up for every American’s right to life.

    I think a true libertarian would support freedom even in a woman’s uterus.

      What is a TRUE libertarian? Is there checklist of items that you MUST believe to be a TRUE libertarian? Is there no variation of beliefs within the scope of Libertarianism? I look at Libertarianism like Christianity. Christianity has many different variations such as Baptists, Methodists, Non-Denominational, etc. that differ on certain things (non-essentials) but ultimately they all believe in Jesus Christ as the Savior and thus are still a part of Christianity. Libertarianism also has varying views within its ranks. There are libertarians that believe in Pro-Choice and there are those that are Pro-Life. Each has it’s reasons but both still fall under the main banner of Libertarianism. A quick wiki search will reveal an introduction to this very issue. So, what is a TRUE libertarian or a TRUE Christian? I don’t know the answer, but I don’t believe that differing views on “non-essential” elements disqualifies a person from the overarching belief system. A Pro-Life libertarian believes that they are protecting the individual rights and liberties of an unborn human being. Is that not libertarianism?

      Also, Ron Paul is personally Pro-Life, but feels that it should be up to the states to decide on the matter. His son Rand Paul, on the other hand, is purely Pro-Life and feels that all abortion is wrong. So, as you can see, there are even divides among the Paul family but they are all still Pauls and all still libertarians.

      I’m not angry or defensive, just passionate and enjoy discussing such issues. Please continue to comment with your personal views if you’d like to discuss.
