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.

    Ron Paul: “There has to be a criminal penalty for the person that’s committing that crime. And I think that is the abortionist. ”

    Why does Ron Paul, who believes in markets, believe that a provider of a service can be guilty of a crime while the person who contracted for that service is not guilty? Clearly the two are co-conspirators. In any other instance, an individual who seeks to violate the rights of another via a third party is just as guilty — if not more so — as that third party of the violation.

    At any time after conception, a woman who seeks to terminate a pregnancy by herself — even via a morning-after pill — should be, by Ron Paul’s logic, guilty of a crime and thus subject to punishment.

  • A lesson in basic logic

    According to pro-choice logic, the moment a baby is born, it’s no longer okay to kill it, but if it’s going to be born in a few seconds, it’s not a person and can be killed. Where is the logic in that? Nothing changed in the fetus; the only difference is that it left its mother’s womb. By that logic, it’s completely okay to kill me when I’m inside my house, but once I go outside, it’s not.

  • LizDexic

    So a woman who wants to terminate her pregnancy…according to her Constitutional right….should not be able to do so because of Ron Paul’s beliefs?


    • LizDexic

      Funny how Libertarians are for limited government, EXCEPT when limiting women’s rights to control their own bodies.

      • Everyone with an IQ over 7

        News flash: The fetus isn’t part of the woman’s body. That’s not a belief or opinion; it’s just a scientific fact.

        • Mikey666

          Well, if the foetus is not a part of the woman’s body, then it should manage excellently on it self. Just extract it from the mother’s body then and see how long it will survive.

          Facts please!

      • Chandler Compton

        You narrow minded feminazi. Cant you get over the obvious leaps of progression in women’s rights in America? You making yourself some petty and wimpy “victim” of men’s past transgressions horrifies me. The fact that you want to kill a child that is NOT your body, they are INSIDE your body, you liberal lowlife serf. Go back to killing children, taking money from the government that you don’t deserve, and letting terrorists come into our country to easily kill us because we have no goddamn guns to protect ourselves! Die in a hole, bitch!

        • Christine

          Try some decaf.

          And if you want ALL the babies to be born there will be a certain percentage of parents not able to take care of them for various reasons so how many African American AIDS positive, heroin addicted babies can we put you down for?

          Let me guess. ZERO. Because you’re a fucking cunt who just wants to scream at women online.

      • Amazing Alastair AardVark

        But, it is NOT their own bodies…the Human Life in the womb is a separate entity, with a completely unique set of DNA!….it is a HUMAN BEING at a stage of life we have ALL been at & thus, is subject to all the protections afforded all other human beings in America!!

        “When life begins is a scientific, not a philosophic or theological, question: Life begins when the chromosomes of the sperm fuse with those of the ovum, forming a distinctive DNA complex that controls the new organism’s growth. This growth process continues unless a natural accident interrupts it or it is ended by the sort of deliberate violence Planned Parenthood sells”
        -George Will, Conservative Pundit & Atheist.

        Why is it that people like you don’t understand the simple idea that IT ISN’T JUST YOUR BODY!
        It’s somebody else’s body too.

    • Guest

      You seem to have forgotten the small detail that the woman is terminating her pregnancy by murdering the fetus. The Constitution doesn’t give anyone the right to kill another person.

      • Christine

        A fetus isn’t a person. You answered your own question in your comment. Du-uh.

      If someone wanted to run around shooting random people for fun, they should be allowed to do it. It doesn’t matter that you believe murder is wrong; since they don’t, it’s perfectly okay for them to kill someone. That’s the kind of logic you’re using. It doesn’t matter that, according to you, it’s her constitutional right; just because abortion is currently legal doesn’t make it okay. Slavery was once legal, but that doesn’t mean its okay that people enslaved others; it’s one of the most horrible things people have ever done to each other. By your logic, there was nothing wrong with slavery because it was a constitutional right before the 13th Amendment.

    • Antodav

      You do not have a constitutional right to murder your child, no matter what an extremely misguided court ruled 40 years ago. One day that error will be corrected like so many others.

      Ron Paul’s beliefs are laid out in pretty solid, scientifically and constitutionally sound principles. Feminism is rooted in hedonism and selfishness.

  • The_Countess

    “If you can’t protect life then how can you protect liberty?”

    it’s a nice slogan/sound bite and all but how exactly does one follow from the other?

    also, life might ‘begin’ at conception (it doesn’t actually, both the sperm cell and the egg cell were alive before that point) but that doesn’t mean its already a person immediately after conception.

    with nature (or god if you want) aborting between 30 and 50% of pregnancies on it’s own i don’t see why early term abortions in particular should be such a big deal (and 9 out of 10 abortions happen before week 14)

  • Hezekiah Isstrudo

    God is the Giver of Life. Not women, not man but God. Therefore NO women or man has the “right” to kill her baby. Unborn/born/partially born/ or otherwise. If i even think about committing a non-violent felony with another person INSTANTLY i’ve committed a felony and face years in prison for a “conspiracy”. Simply taking about a NON-violent felony. You arrogant stiff-neck women and men routinely kill defenseless life and are vocal about?! Where is your indictment for such violence as abortion?

    Facebook will post some horrific posts but because I am anti abortion and posted about a post about a pro abortionist not having a brain FB will not let me post like comments.

    I have to log in each time and read their policy.

    I did not use any swear words so why is Facebook denying my liberty to say what I think about pro abortion

  • Jim

    Women have rights, too, Ron. Deal with it.

    • Joseph

      Is it the women’s life that is being killed, or is it the baby’s?

    • Captain Obvious

      No one has the right to kill another person. Just because the other person is inside her doesn’t give a woman the right to kill them. If men got pregnant, it would be wrong for them to kill fetuses as well; it has nothing to do with gender.

      • lkaw56

        It is our right to do what we want with our body as it is our right to do what you want to yours as a man, -tattoos, body piercings, implant , toe removal , do what you want. My BODY my choice.

    RON PAUL 2016 I really love and appreciate that Ron Paul is pro-life as well am I. Ron Paul truly is for life, freedom, and liberty in all walks of life. Whether that be foreign policy, personally, unborn children etc… Ron Paul really is a true gem that will be greatly missed. Ron Paul, you are my hero and I will do all that I can to continue your legacy now and for the years to come. Thank you Dr. Ron Paul. You have done far more for us than most even realize or comprehend.

    • Hezekiah Isstrudo

      You echo my thoughts of him.

  • I’m curious to find out what blog platform you have been using?
    I’m having some small security issues with my latest website and I’d like to find something more safeguarded.
    Do you have any recommendations?

    Abortion is murder, simple as that.

      Agreed. Case closed.
