Rand Paul is a pro-life Senator from Kentucky who appears poised to become one of the candidates for the Republican nomination for president in 2016. Although he has a strong pro-life voting record, Paul is making comments about abortion that are concerning pro-lifers.
randpaul3As LifeNews reported earlier this year, Paul said in an interview that Republicans should agree to disagree on social issues.
Now, in a new interview, Paul says he doesnt anticipate changing the laws on abortion and added that his belief that life begins at conception is a personal and religious one, not a scientific viewpoint.

This is beyond moronic. He should be embarrassed.
“belief that life begins at conception is a personal and religious one, not a scientific viewpoint.”
What?! Not only is this a SCIENTIFIC FACT, but the fact that it is 100% HUMAN LIFE is a SCIENTIFIC FACT.
Abortion is murder. May nations be judged by how they treat their most vulnerable.
“...his belief that life begins at conception is a personal and religious one, not a scientific viewpoint.”
Actually, that’s not a “view” but scientific fact.
Paul sure gives up easy on everything, at least everything that conservatives would have predicted a libertarian republican would be giving up on.
Rand is calling on the GOP to “evolve” on these issues.
Paulistas are another family not fit for the Presidency.
So of course, the Republicans decide that now is a good time to hop off the pro-life wagon.
WHAT! Of course life beings at conception - what else is it going on in there - IT’S LIFE!
I can’t imagine he really believes what he just said.
Yep. He just lost my vote. His dad is a doctor. He knows damn well life begins at conception.
and yet, by the time 2028 rolls around, there will have been one in every pres primary process for like 6 straight cycles.
He is simply a liar, make that a damn liar.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
My Country is not.
the Constitutionalist does not believe in the right to life
Isn’t he a doctor also?
so any law based on personal beliefs - they aren’t going to ever try to change them to match that personal beliefs?
rand, ALL laws are based on someone’s beliefs. the question is, who’s beliefs re the laws going to reflect, yours or your enemies?
rand just said heisn’t going to fight for his or your beliefs being reflected in our laws. he may as well resign now and let someone who understands what laws are about, to govern for the people.
rand you just sowed everyone the fool you really are.
Good gawd this guy is a fraud. He’s also alienating a good portion of Libertarians who are pro life.
Rand Paul is a figment of my imagination.
Paul was a total idiot answering that question like he did. So freaking Romney wishy washy. Paul wants it both ways on too many topics. People want to know what you believe and they want to believe you mean it. How freaking hard is it to just say what you mean.
Life begins at conception.
Paul’s answer on this issue is just one of many reasons I couldn’t vote for him. But wow...he’s not going to make it to the first primary at this rate. AND so far, the state of Kentucky is going to make him decide which ballot he wants to be on.
This guy passed Biology 101 and got into medical school?
You’d flunk if you said something idiotic like this on a test.
I know. I was a biology major in January of 1973, and I understood when Roe was announced that they were saying it was OK to kill a person....by just calling them another name, a scientific one: “fetus”.
Which doesn’t mean you aren’t biologically alive, just in a certain phase of growth.
Life begins at conception. What the court said was that the legal term “personhood” could be defined as being much later.
And that’s what we’re all against.
The decrease in the number of abortions is likely more the result of an increased availability of birth control than it is a change in public opinion on the issue. Poll after polls show that while a majority of Americans to be supportive of restrictions on abortion, this same majority is opposed to a total ban.
