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?
“namely building enough prisons for all the baby killers and their proponents.”
It won’t take long, make it illegal and far far far fewer people will do it.
