Protect All Human Life

The heated debate about abortion is filled with emotional arguments that usually center on considerations such as sexual morality, religious beliefs, women’s rights, or purely on pragmatic reasons: if abortion were made illegal it would still take place – under unsanitary conditions that would endanger additional lives.

However, a rational evaluation of abortion must be built upon one single question: When exactly does human life begin? At conception, at birth or somewhere in between?

Not even the most radical feminist would find it okay to tear apart a recently-born baby just because it is not wanted by its mother. All other considerations aside, the only reason many individuals can support abortion with a good conscience is because they believe it’s not murder… and that unborn babies do not count as human beings.

Ron Paul has delivered more than 4,000 babies. He believes that human life starts at conception, and that casual elimination of the unborn leads to a careless attitude towards all life.

Recalling his personal observation of a late-term abortion performed by one of his instructors during his medical residency, Ron Paul stated, “It was pretty dramatic for me to see a two-and-a-half-pound baby taken out crying and breathing and put in a bucket.”

In an Oct. 27, 1999 speech to Congress, Ron Paul said:

“I am strongly pro-life. I think one of the most disastrous rulings of this century was Roe versus Wade. I do believe in the slippery slope theory. I believe that if people are careless and casual about life at the beginning of life, we will be careless and casual about life at the end. Abortion leads to euthanasia. I believe that.”

During a May 15, 2007, appearance on the Fox News talk show Hannity and Colmes, Ron Paul argued that his pro-life position was consistent with his libertarian values, asking, “If you can’t protect life then how can you protect liberty?” Additionally, Ron Paul said that since he believes libertarians support non-aggression, libertarians should oppose abortion because abortion is “an act of aggression” against a fetus.

At the GOP Values Voter Presidential Debate on Sep 17, 2007, Ron Paul was asked what he will do to restore legal protection to the unborn:

“As an O.B. doctor of thirty years, and having delivered 4,000 babies, I can assure you life begins at conception. I am legally responsible for the unborn, no matter what I do, so there’s a legal life there. The unborn has inheritance rights, and if there’s an injury or a killing, there is a legal entity. There is no doubt about it.”

At the GOP YouTube debate in St. Petersburg, Florida, on Nov 28, 2007, Ron Paul was asked what a woman would be charged with if abortion becomes illegal and she obtains an abortion anyway:

“The first thing we have to do is get the federal government out of it. We don’t need a federal abortion police. That’s the last thing that we need. There has to be a criminal penalty for the person that’s committing that crime. And I think that is the abortionist. As for the punishment, I don’t think that should be up to the president to decide.”

For many years, Ron Paul has been speaking up for babies’ rights. He passionately defends those who cannot speak for themselves because they haven’t been born yet.

In order to “offset the effects of Roe v. Wade”, Paul voted in favor of the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003. He has described partial birth abortion as a “barbaric procedure”.

At the same time, Ron Paul believes that the ninth and tenth amendments to the U.S. Constitution do not grant the federal government any authority to legalize or ban abortion. Instead, it is up to the individual states to prohibit abortion.

Many people feel very strongly about the issue of abortion, and once they make up their minds they rarely change their opinion. If you are undecided and/or open-minded, check out this page and this site for more information about abortion, including images and a description of medical procedures.

  1. Sometimes I think us humans are so stupid that we can’t see the forest for the trees. We have educated ourselves to stupidity. Lets take a hard look at the animal most resembling a human, a primate comes to mind. Now these simple yet complex creatures are not at risk of overpopulating the Earth. Why is that? Is it because they accept the life cycle afforded them by nature? Is it because thay don’t build hospitals used to prolong a natueral existence? They don’t teach other monkeys to do heart surgery on a old monkey. My we sure are smart ain’t we. Save one old goat, kill one new kid. Boy we sure is smart, as I said. Cars kill us, airplanes kill us,sickness kills us, a thousand manmade things kill us, heck we even kill our own kids. I can’t waite for the monkey wars to start I want to see monkey carnage all over the place.

    • @Demsprtr Animals do abort, they practice cannibalism in over crowding they will practice infanticide, We aren’t all that far removed, our ability for creation and destruction is just way ahead of them. And unfortunately over crowding the damn planet isn’t making us more humane, its selfish.

  2. Y’all, simple fact is, Paul’s stand (and previous votes on abortion RIGHTS as a representative) is anathema to libertarianism, personal freedom and women’s equality under the law.

    Unfortunately, it will forever marginalize him. I hope he stays in the race to continue to behead chicken hawks, but his record on this issue alone will always keep the ceiling uncomfortably low.

HAHA how come I expected the well she shouldn’t have sex at all theory, try to stop me, all you fuckers are doing are making me want to go have sex more, actually try to police peoples sexuality, as for post viability options, I already said I don’t support post viability abortions, because there is an option to just deliver the baby and put it in an Incubator, humans however are not forced incubators kid

    You are taking a philosophical discussion literally. You are attempting to take a complex subjective definition and cram it into a tiny literal definition.

    Perhaps your definition of the basic goal of life in general is to procreate. Seems awfully nihilistic to me.

  6. If sex was indeed limited to procreation same sex unions wouldn’t be so prevalent in nature. And no Ill never agree with you Pan, actually I am trolling you, it is rather fun to see someone with such limited brain capacity that they can’t understand our biological need for affection and love, and that our basic sexuality is linked to love and affection.

    • @vampyreshadow your whole argument only proves what pan is saying here. when you have sex, are intimate, have an orgasm, your body releases chemicals/hormones that make you feel good. so you will want to do it again. and again and again. so you will make more people. that is basic biology. all mammals are made this way. its a neato way to get us to mate and perpetuate our species.

  10. Facts about sex for you “procreation” folks,

    Oxytocin is a powerful hormone released by men and women during orgasm.

    It probably deepens the feelings of attachment and makes couples feel much closer to one another after they have had sex. The theory goes that the more sex a couple has, the deeper their bond becomes.

    Vasopressin is another important hormone in the long-term commitment stage and is released after sex.

    Vasopressin (also called anti-diuretic hormone) works with your kidneys to control thirst. Its potential role in long-term relationships was discovered when scientists looked at the prairie vole.

    Prairie voles indulge in far more sex than is strictly necessary for the purposes of reproduction. They also – like humans – form fairly stable pair-bonds.

    When male prairie voles were given a drug that suppresses the effect of vasopressin, the bond with their partner deteriorated immediately as they lost their devotion and failed to protect their partner from new suitors.

Nothing fortunately proves the bible was anything more then an ancient book of myth written by Bronze age Savages. From the ‘childrens Story” of Moses and the Phaeroh where god kills all the first born and generally acts like a douche, to the story of Abraham where a guy hears voices to kill his son in the name of god (Lucky now days these folks end up in a padded cell) the bible isn’t a happy book of morals….

          I mean we have Incest

          Genesis 19:32-36 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.

          Beating children for being foolish

          Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. Proverbs 22:15

          God sanctioning rape and pedophilia

          And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites … And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males … And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones … And Moses was wroth with the officers … And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? … Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. Numbers 31:1-18

  12. @djt Then there should be laws in place that say that the MAN who got you pregnant MUST pay for the childbirth, the whole cost of raising the child and the child’s college education. And their Graduate School, if the child wants that. And an automobile if the child wants that too. THE MAN needs to suffer from the inconvenience and the problems associated with the child just as much as the woman does, and laws should be in place to make sure that he does. After all, once he has sex with the woman, he also risks the birth of a child, and he need to pay for that. . .

She can say she’s getting an abortion, then doesn’t, she can tell him it’s his, it isn’t, she can have an abortion without him knowing, she can have an abortion against his will. For me, easy solution would be 50/50 custody, unless one parent signs over their parental rights or they have been proven unfit. The child support system is ridiculous.

This is the source of the garbage you are hearing. This is why there is no sympathy for you. For example, prostitutes and homewreckers support Ron Paul because he believes that wives have no rights to a monogamous relationship with their husbands, and Paul also believes that prostitutes and whores have a right to ply their trade even if families are ruined as a result. This is because the man’s wants are paramount We only exist to serve men. Otherwise, we are useless. . .

But, since I pointed out how your argument was flawed, you want to throw the murder bit out, okay then, so what if a person miscarries for not taking care of their body, due to a doctor not seeing that her placenta was abrupted or whatever other reason, should they also be charged with murder? If we give fetuses the same rights, we risk mothers being prosecuted for anything and everything they do to THEIR body that could be deemed harmful to the baby. And see, that’s your problem, the fact that you can say it makes no sense to anyone who believes, realizing other people will have different beliefs, yet you want to force yours on others. smdh, you’d be okay with a dictatorship as long as it was in sync with your beliefs.

    • @Ace81@brensgrrl It’s not about the “right to kill kids” at all. Pro Choicers don’t want the option of abortion because they think it is acceptable to murder an unborn child – it is about the fact that others do not have the right to deny an abortion anymore than those who choose abortion have the right to do that. Are you saying the government has the right to tell others what they can and cannot do with their own bodies? Would you have them tell you that you that they have control over your body? The government isn’t God. If you don’t want an abortion, don’t get one. Let others make their own choice.

    • @Ace81@brensgrrl Since the mother has all the power, she should have all the responsibility. A man who impregnates a woman who will not get an abortion despite his unwillingness to take care of the child or his not being ready to do so, should be able to legally remove himself from the life of said child. I agree that women should have all the power in this instance, but with power comes responsibility. If a woman can get out of taking care of a child, so too should a man. Our society is extremely unfair to men in this way.

  15. What do you think we should do with aaaallllll the fertilized eggs on ice? They are hostage and you sound like a good one to set them all free. Firstly, look into how you as a man can carry them in your body cavity and then have them implant as many as possible at one time so you can be the Savior to many.

  17. I only used my story to see if it mattered to staunch pro-lifers that are completely black and white. I see it doesn’t. I am am not intent on the debate itself as I do not believe there is one definitive answer and truly is based on one’s own beliefs – at least at this point in our scientific awareness. People can insist they can prove it one way or another but I have not been convinced. My pro-choice position is based on my belief that women have the right to decide whether to carry their pregnancies to term. I believe thare is room for us to live with both views but as long as there are those that believe they have the right to police others this won’t happen.

    It wasn’t that long ago that religion believed birth control was not godly and having sex was only for procreation. Birth control was considered a sin by the Catholic church. There also was a time in childbirth before cesarians women’s lives were saved by binding the belly if the child could not pass through the birth canal (full term pregnancies)……not a pretty thought but the mother was saved. They wouldn’t gut her open, take the baby and let her die. Much is based on the times people are living in at any given time. While you say I am using sentimental rhetoric, you are using your own moral rhetoric.

      • @JasikaDenet@djt No because GASP their are other options, there are no other options to pregnancy, keep out of conceptual arguments if you are going to continue being Clueless. There are no other options to being pregnant, you either are or you aren’t. Adoption is another option to parenting, as is foster care

        • @JasikaDenet No very few people since you have posted, there is a thing called liking it shows up on your commenting as for your stance on rape you have made that quite apparent, and yes, simply put it IS ego to be a little twit trying to tell people when sex is appropriate for them, and what can or can’t exist inside their body. Anyways I am done debating you, I find you a disgusting excuse for a human telling another person that they should bear the products of a rape because of your deluded little belief.

        • @JasikaDenet People like this poster IMHO, are as just as Amoral as the rapists. This is Dehumanizing a victim of rape, placing less value on a potential life, then that of a loved existing person. Actually I think this belief comes from the same source as rape, its less about what they claim its about, and more about control over another human. I will support her right to say what she says, I still however claim she is a disgusting piece of work and I am ashamed to call her human. I have taken in homeless, this person however I wouldn’t piss on if they were on fire 😛

  18. There is no fixed, “limited” purpose to sexual intercourse. Regular sex between people creates a biorhythm generating biorhythmic intimacy; this allows monogamous couples have good marriages even if they cannot have or adopt children. Few American men willingly continue marriages if they do not get to have regular sex, and refusing to have sex with one’s husband for a number of months without a sufficient medical excuse is grounds for his suing his wife for refusing to live up to her marriage contract. As for ova and sperm, we have no idea whether or not they have other biological purposes than the one’s already identified. Sperm contain a potent antidepressant that can be absorbed through the skin and it’s a natural product without side effects if not injected into the sex organs of a woman. Ova may have other useful properties, too.

  20. @djt Pan, your an IDIOT, the government plays nanny regularly this is true, but fact, this causes more issues then the problem in the start, get your head out of your arse, look at prostitution laws, we aren’t any closer to ending it then we were to start, look at the drug war, we have turned our borders into a war zone. The fact is our government is a shitty baby sitter 😛
