Abortion.Submitted by P. Nicholson on Sat, 06/28/2014 - 10:12
I had a healthy debate with a young woman last night and I want to get my thoughts out while they are fresh on my mind.
Ron Paul took a controversial stand when it comes to abortion and the 'day after' pill. I listened to him and it makes sense.
If the goal is to stop the carving up of babies in the womb then the day after pill is a logical step forward.
A quick google query found over 1M hits on 'ron paul debate morning after pill'. Both the right and left lit up like July 4th on his take on the issue. The top result coming from our own forum: 'Can no longer support Ron Paul: morning-after pill | Peace ...'.
The young lady I spoke with last night is absolutely pro-life and lost her leg to cancer. She collects a monthly check from the govt and has three of her own children.
The 'morning after pill' empowers women to make better decisions for themselves. Condoms break. A woman is always at risk of a man in the heat of the moment. As I understand it, sperm takes an average of three days to reach the point of fertilization.
Once again, Ron Paul has it right. (Im paraphrasing) 'If you cannot prove life, you cannot prove abortion.'
If the science is correct, then the morning after pill does not cause an abortion. I am absolutely in the corner of doing anything that stops the inhumane and wicked practice of abortion.
The morning after pill does that. What I have found is the religious right fumes at any attempt for a woman to take control of her own body and the left despises any attempt at saving life.
What we have here is a solution that should satisfy both sides. It certainly is a preferable choice over carving up fetuses.
That is an issue both sides should come together on.
