Pro-Life and the Ron Paul StanceSubmitted by alexrogo on Wed, 01/30/2008 - 12:52
Ok, first off, my parents are HARD CORE Christians. And when I say hard core I mean they only vote for pro-life candidates. They're right now pledging their support to Huckabee. Of course, I started to talk to them about Ron Paul. Now, my parents actually do their research and I'd like to share with you the conversation I had last night with my Mom. As a side note, I am indifferent on the Pro-Life stance.
Me: So what do you think of Ron Paul?
Mom: Well, we researched his Pro-Life stance and found that he's really not Pro-Life, just wants to give control of it over to the states.
Me: Well, Mom, that's where it belongs.
Mom: Well, we'd like to see Roe vs. Wade overturned...and would like to see abortions illegal across the board.
Me: That's unlikely to happen. It's a matter between the Supreme Court, regardless. And Justices have a Life term. Its seems rather difficult to get a majority at this point since so few new judges are appointed. I'd hate to see you base your decision on something that the President has little, if no control over.
Mom: I understand that, but we stand by Huckabee.
Me: Well, Mom, just think...if the States get control over the decision of abortion and just one state makes it illegal...wouldn't that be saving thousands of babies' lives? And isn't that better than what we have now?
I think the light went on...keep on keeping on folks! If my parents can be convinced then anyone can!
