Can someone help me with Dr. Paul's views on abortion.Submitted by Jenny4Liberty on Mon, 02/06/2012 - 02:17
So I am getting annoyed by women simply stating they will not vote for Ron Paul BECAUSE "he wants to control my uterus" and he's pro life and blah blah blah. Now, I think it's utterly ridiculous to choose Obomba over a man who can save our country over a topic such as abortion, which I believe should just be a decision between a doctor and patient if necessary. I am a woman. I have two children, had my first child at 21, and turned my life around in order to be able to raise a child at that age, because it was of my OWN actions, and I would never abort a child...But anyways, I think that if you want to mess around and be irresponsible and use abortion as your form of birth control, that is disgusting. This should not be allowed. I believe children are innocents. If it is threatening the mother's life, or a naive young child 13 or 14 etc, or in the case of rape, and an "honest rape", just saw a big ole article about Ron Paul saying women who are raped are liars because of that statement. But trust me, there are PLENTY of girls/women who make bad decisions sexually and instead of facing the facts of their mistakes, refuse to admit it when finding out they are pregnant and claim rape. That is what he is talking about, dumb-asses. I am just kind of disturbed at how much emphasis is put on abortion, and I just see these women carry on about "my uterus". Ok. I just feel like that is really minor decision-maker. Honestly, I just may be naive on the subject, I don't know. But what EXACTLY is Ron Paul's views on ABORTION? Does he believe it is a STATE right, like as in the PEOPLE of that STATE can VOTE to IMPLEMENT or BAN abortion in that state? Or what? I mean what's the deal? So I can explain it to these women, correctly. Ron Paul makes perfect sense when he speaks about gray area of 1 minute before birth/and one minute after birth scenario. And can you tell me how it differences between life & liberty...and the freedom to do to your body as you wish? Also, I believe George Carlin said that Republicans want LIVE babies so they can have DEAD soldiers...This may ring true, but not in Ron Paul, who is truly PRO LIFE in those aspects, but is he REALLY pro-choice via Liberty on the subject of abortion? I'm confused, I guess. Regardless, the man has my vote, an whoever else I can convert! Much appreciated. Thank you.
