IowaPolitics.com: Paul advocates ending free birth control, non-intervention not war


By Hannah Hess

MARSHALLTOWN — Texas U.S. Rep. Ron Paul vowed Wednesday to cut funding for free contraceptives if elected president, affirming his stance as an anti-abortion candidate and personal responsibility advocate to supporters here.

"Whether it's buying a loaf of bread or getting a birth control pill, in a free country, that's your responsibility," said Paul, in response to a question about how to provide reproductive health care for uninsured Americans under his plan to eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest provider of abortions and a leading pro-abortion rights advocate.

The dreaded "R" word. Does any one remember the MTV debate last time around when a college-aged female asked Ron Paul how he would provide birth control (before and after copulation) and he basically told her it wasn't the responsibility of the Federal Government.

It was quite priceless and yet most likely went way over the heads of those participating in that audience. What a story the MSM could have made out of that question and answer...I still shake my head in disbelief at the audacity of the question and it angers me that there are those in that generation that REFUSE to take responsibility for their actions.

Who raised these kids? More importantly, who is going to take care of them? They certainly won't take care of themselves.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul
