Can no longer support Ron Paul: morning-after pillSubmitted by michaelmalak on Sat, 09/24/2011 - 12:41
I can no longer support Ron Paul. I've discovered that in his book Liberty Defined, Ron Paul advocates the morning-after pill:
So if we are ever to have fewer abortions, society must change again. The law will not accomplish that. However, that does not mean that the states shouldn't be allowed to write laws dealing with abortion. Very early pregnancies and victims of rape can be treated with the day after pill, which is nothing more than using birth control pills in a special manner. These very early pregnancies could never be policed, regardless. Such circumstances would be dealt with by each individual making his or her own moral choice.
I had previously understood that Ron Paul would nullify Roe v. Wade, allowing the states to make their own laws, while using the bully pulpit to encourage them to outlaw abortion. The problem is he is using his current bully pulpit to encourage the morning after pill.
I will be removing my Ron Paul bumper sticker and be sitting out the 2012 presidential election.
