AMERICAN RIGHT TO LIFE REJECTS RON PAUL'S PLEDGE
Alaska Native News ^

Posted on 12/29/2011 8:10:29 PM PST by mnehring

American Right To Life calls it politics as usual when Ron Paul tried to mislead pro-life voters by signing a pledge that he actually rejects. Just in time for the 2012 Iowa caucuses Paul pledged that he will "endorse legislation to make clear that the 14th Amendment protections apply to unborn children." But then he contradicted his pledge by stating, "I can't agree that the Fourteenth Amendment has a role to play here."

"Shockingly, Ron Paul agrees with the central finding of Roe v. Wade itself," says Darrell Birkey, director of research for American Right To Life, "that the constitutional protection of human rights does not apply to unborn children." And Birkey adds, "Ron Paul as president would defend a fictitious right of states to legalize the murder of children, but any country that permits kids to be intentionally killed is not even civilized."

"Ron Paul is not who he claims to be," says Lolita Hanks, president of American RTL. "Paul is pro-choice, state-by-state. He believes states should be allowed to keep abortion, which is like allowing states to keep slavery." Thus as president, Paul would refuse to enforce the 14th amendment, which declares, "No State shall… deprive any person of life… without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." (See more at AmericanRTL.org/constitution.)

"Today's pro-life movement is strong and growing, not weak and willing to accept whatever we can get," says Hanks. "We're not going to swoon because Ron Paul or any other candidate merely claims to be pro-life. Either Ron Paul will use governmental authority to stop the slaughter of children, or he is just another worthless politician." SOURCE American Right To Life

I believe that the 14th Amendment should be construed to protect the unborn.
The question I have is this. How can the Supreme Court prevent states from allowing it?
It’s not like an unborn child can take the mother and Dr. to court to get an injunction.
The only way to do this is for Congress to make it a federal crime to violate the civil rights of the unborn.
A reversal of Roe would essentially leave it up to each state absent protections for the unborn passed by Congress.

Makes me wonder how pro-life conservatives can support him?

More from the Americans for Life site:

http://prolifeprofiles.com/ronpaul

Excerpt:
Ron Paul wants to be pro-life but is officially pro-choice state by state, and so contradicts himself and wrongly assumes that states’ rights supersede human rights, concluding that a state like California has the right to permit abortion. But the right to life is God-given so there can be no ‘right’ to decriminalize child killing.

RE:"Shockingly, Ron Paul agrees with the central finding of Roe v. Wade itself," says Darrell Birkey, director of research for American Right To Life, "that the constitutional protection of human rights does not apply to unborn children."

Now come on, the central (made up) find of Roe was that the freedom to have an abortion is a US constitutional right. That is why it nullified all state abortion laws on the books. If all it did was what was stated above abortion would still be illegal in many states.

"Shockingly, Ron Paul agrees with the central finding of Roe v. Wade itself,"

Ron Paul is a feeble-minded boob who thinks the world of himself. His worshippers commonly say things like "If you support the Constitution you HAVE to support Ron Paul," which is a non-starter.

I can't stand him.

His fans certainly are absolutists. It must be comforting to live in such a simple world.

I just can’t figure out how they think Paul is going to win when most people think he’s just plain nuts, and if he somehow did win, how would he achieve anything? By the sheer force of his winning personality, ala Reagan?

Copying from myself, Paul is the Republican version of Obama—a stupid person’s idea of a smart person.

So lets see what Ron Paul wrote that got that supposedly got them so upset. Link to Ron Paul's clarifying statement on his pledge: http://www.personhoodusa.com/files/Keith%20Ashley/Ron%20Paul%20Personhood%20Statement_0.pdf December 19, 2011 As a pro-life OB/GYN who has delivered over 4,000 babies, I have always opposed abortion. Let me be very clear: life begins at conception. It is the duty of the government to protect life, as set forth in our founding documents. While I am known for my defense of Liberty, I often say that you can’t have Liberty without Life. I don't just believe life begins at conception; I know it as a scientific certainty. And I have sponsored bills in Congress to make this definition law. Today, I want to tell you a bit more about my views on life than the attached pledge really allows me to explain. I think it is important for us all to describe our views on life in our own words. I believe the attached pledge is important. The fight for the Right to Life is unlike any other in our society right now, and I am proud to be a soldier in that fight. But it is also important to fight every battle with principle. At this point, I think I am well-known for my constitutional views and sticking to my principles, even when doing so is hard and forces me to stand alone. Both this pledge and the pro-life issue itself require some careful thought from my fellow pro-lifers so we can avoid the trap of throwing out the Constitution in our effort to save lives. Just as we cannot have liberty without life, I believe the opposite is also true: we must keep the Constitution and liberty in mind when fighting for the rights of the unborn. Otherwise, we undermine the entire system our Founders put their lives on the line to create in order to protect life and liberty. I guarantee you that no one would work harder to be the most ardent and active pro-life President in history. I do not say that lightly. My entire life's work has touched on this issue in a way few others have. So as I pondered this pledge, as I do all pledges, I had to ensure I would continue to stand with the Constitution. I have previously sponsored a Human Life Amendment while in Congress, and though I ultimately do not believe this is how we will end abortion, achieving such an amendment is certainly a laudable goal. Of course, Presidents do not sign constitutional amendments - another reason I cannot guarantee what would happen on this issue. A Human Life Amendment should do two things. First, it should define life as beginning at conception and give the unborn the same protection all other human life enjoys. Second, it must deal with the enforcement of the ruling much as any law against violence does - through state laws. To summarize my views - I believe the federal government has a role to play. I believe Roe v. Wade should be repealed. I believe federal law should declare that life begins at conception. And I believe states should regulate the enforcement of this law, as they do other laws against violence. I don't see the value in setting up a federal police force on this issue any more than I do on other issues. The Fourteenth Amendment was never intended to cancel out the Tenth Amendment. This means that I can’t agree that the Fourteenth Amendment has a role to play here, or otherwise we would end up with a "Federal Department of Abortion." Does anyone believe that will help life? We should allow our republican system of government to function as our Founders designed it to: protect rights at the federal level, enforce laws against violence at the state level. As President, I will sign and aggressively advocate for a law that removes abortion from the jurisdiction of the federal courts. This approach, done by simple majority vote and stroke of my Presidential Pen, would effectively overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to pass strong pro-life legislation immediately. Millions of lives would be saved by this approach while we fight to make every state a right to life state. I would place a priority in my administration on ending federal abortion funding, defunding Planned Parenthood, and defunding any state department or UN agency that encourages abortion in their "family planning" activities. As a Congressman, I have consistently voted against giving federal funds to any organization that performs abortions or engages in "family planning" activities, and I have offered legislation on the floor of the House to defund all international family planning programs. No one has ever completely defunded these programs, because they weren't willing to undertake the fight that would result from vetoing the spending bills. I will veto these bills every time it takes until no taxpayer dollars go to abortion. I will use my constitutional authority as President to stop the enforcement of all regulations relating to ObamaCare, including the new HHS regulations forcing all employers, even religious or church-affiliated ones, to provide coverage for contraceptives and RU-486 as part of their health insurance plans. In addition, I will only put pro-life judges who adhere to the Constitution on the federal bench. Finally, I will fight back against our depraved culture by ending all federal programs that undermine the family and our traditional American values of respect for life and personal responsibility. I will lead by example, as I have done every day in my medical practice and in Congress. We CAN both fight for life AND liberty. We can remain true to our principle of following the Constitution while also fighting for our moral values. In fact, we must. I ask for the support of every one of my fellow pro-lifers. This is an important moment in history. You can vote for any of the many folks who will sign a pledge, or you can vote for the one who stands by everything he has ever said on this critical issue over the years. You can choose the candidate whose principles and consistency are unquestioned, and whose record is unmatched. You can vote for BOTH a pro-life champion and a different kind of President, who will end business as usual all across Washington, fix our budget mess, and strengthen our families by restoring jobs and upholding our values. Thank you for your consideration. For Life and Liberty,

So now we have conservative judicial activists here (in a creative re-interpretation of the 14th amendment). Just because Ron Paul does not support this creative re-interpretation he is labeled as not being pro-life. It is really a stretch to make the case that now, in 2011, suddenly the 14th amendment protects the unborn. And that anybody who disagrees is not pro-life.

This particular Right to Life group would greatly benefit from a Ron Paul presidency, because the stuff they are smoking (illegal now) migh become legal with Ron Paul as president.

Changes to current situation, in order from least effective to most effective) would be:
- act of Congress (might be iffy constitutionally)
- overturning Roe vs. Wade (back to the states)
- Constitutional Amendment

Notice that president is not really involved here (apart from signing an act of Congress).

I am fine with any of the current GOP candidates, including Ron Paul. I am just a little sick and tired of all this in-fighting. It is making Obama look good in comparison... I am just hoping that the GOP nomination will be decided quickly and decisively so that this infighting ends.

Thanks for posting the actual facts (though paragraphs would have helped). Not that it will matter, as PDS is pretty strong here at FR. Paul has forcefully stated his pro-life position for years, and is the only candidate that has personally delivered babies into this world.

The disagreement really is over where the pro-life position is properly regulated. Paul believes this is a state issue, and on this point I agree with him.

The closest analogy I can find in relation to this is that murder is not against federal law.(with some unconstitutional (IMO) exceptions). Murder is a crime properly dealt with by the states. So, if a candidate doesn't support a national law against unjustifiable killing, does that make them supportive of murderers?

Article One, Section Eight of the Constitution sets forth the delegated powers of the national government. I find no mention of abortion or anything related there.

I’m sickoflibs too, but it seems that you’re straining at a gnat. At 32:30 into American Right To Life’s documentary, Focus on the Strategy 2, you can hear Notre Dame law professor Dr. Charles Rice, constitutional expert, make the same point, that the non-personhood of the child is the central finding of Roe v. Wade, that the baby is a “non-person.” The Roe decision itself admits that its own finding about “privacy” would be falsified if the “personhood” of the fetus were established. Thus Ron Paul agrees with the fundamental finding of Roe, that constitutional protection of the rights of persons do not apply to unborn children. It’s tragic.

Another tip of the hat to the VK. Had a disagreement with one of my son-in-laws during Christmas (and son-in-law is a responsible human). Had to put him in his place regarding paul. He was not changed in his opinion of paul though it was not due to a lack of trying. He will come around eventually. He thinks clearer than the paulbots.

The right to life is a fundamental federal issue. Not an area where Ron Paul, or anyone running for public office, should shrink from exercising authority. There is a rub, however, when it comes to practically exercising that authority, namely building enough prisons for all the baby killers and their proponents.

Would Ron Paul be in favor of federally funded abortions? No. Would he be in accord with legislation preventing people from exposing abortion for what it is? No. What is the track record - either by intent or effect - of other Republican Presidents when it comes to arresting baby killers?

Ron Paul’s core cult following hates the lip-service he plays to defending the unborn anyway. Never does it occur to these idiots that the little man is every bit as duplicitous and slimy as Mitt Romney.

I don’t know about now, but I recall that Paul’s pro life voting record was not very good because he felt that states should set their own limits on abortion such as abortion funding, parental consent, taking underage girls across state lines for abortions, etc.
