'I am 100% pro life. I believe abortion is taking the life of an innocent human being. I believe life begins at conception and it is the duty of our government to protect this life. I will always vote for any and all legislation that would end abortion or lead us in the direction of ending abortion' (Rand Paul).

"I will always vote for any and all legislation that would end abortion or lead us in the direction of ending abortion' (Rand Paul)."

I would like to see Paul go a bit further with this statement. Not only will he vote for legislation to end abortion, he will tirelessly author such legislation.

Could this be the beginning of the end of this national nightmare we’ve been living?

Congrats to Paul.

Time to remove the “Gobbler” (Mitch McConnell) from his leaderless post.

Then, let the voters of Kentucky remove him from office.

Throw all the bums out.

Rand Paul caught lying about his pro-life survey

http://www.newsrealblog.com/2010/04/24/rand-paul-caught-lying-about-pro-life-survey/

What about instances of rape or incest or where the outcome may not be death, but severe medical problems for the mother or child. Do you think that in these cases the decision should be left to the government rather than the families?

Paul: In cases of rape, trying to prevent pregnancies is obviously the best thing. The morning-after pill works successfully most of the time. Ultimately we do better if we do have better education about family planning. With partial-birth abortion, there were five women who testified that it threatened their life. It wasn’t completely true in all cases. They were non-viable babies. They were babies with awful genetic mutations that were not going to survive, and I tend to think we let nature take its course. (Lorie Settles, “US Senate Hopeful Rand Paul Visits Middlesboro,” The Middlesboro Daily News, 1/26/10)

I think a whole lot of people got snookered tonight.

'I am 100% pro life. I believe abortion is taking the life of an innocent human being. I believe life begins at conception

Dr. Paul, like both of the people he was named for, is a dedicated libertarian. He is therefore incapable of being honest when it comes to abortion. This being America, he is free to claim to believe that life begins at conception, even if he doesn't.

Kentucky Right to Life opposed Dr. Paul in the primary for one reason: He was given a questionaire, which he returned incomplete. Specificially, he refused to answer questions about his position on stem cell research. He then lied to the press and said he was given a "100% Pro-Life" rating (he's making referrence to that in the quote you provided). When KRL called him on this, he went so far as to produce a bugus survey, forcing KRL to make the original he faxed to their office (complete with time stamp) to the press. Even then, Dr. Paul persisted in the lie. He released a statement saying that he opposed federal funding of stem cell research. But this was not the question, and libertarians oppose federal funding of everything anyway. Here's KRL's point: If you can't oppose ALL ebryonic research, you can't oppose abortion on it's only logical ground: That it is always the murder of a human being. Murder of a unique living human inside the womb is also murder outside it. Dr. Paul knows he is not being consistent, so he can't answer the questions. KRL also believes that Dr. Paul supports partial birth abortion, and the "morning after pill," but these questions were not on the survey.

I can't vote in Kentucky, but I will be rooting for Dr. Paul. That being said he takes the libertarian positions in opposing foreign military activity in Iraq and opposing the Patriot Act. He was not the the "Pro Life" candidate in this election, Trey Grayson was. If elected senator, he will undoubtedly follow in his father's footsteps and run for president repeatedly. In some cases as a third party candidate, who takes votes from a more traditionally conservative candidate and leaves us with four (or even eight) years of Democrat presidency.

Pro-Life Rand Paul

Wrong. He thinks that if states want to allow the killing of children they should be allowed to, just like his father.

Just like his father he destroys the Natural Law, Declaration of Independence principles that form the moral, constitutional, legal and political arguments against abortion.

Just like his father, he pretends that the explicit requirements of the Fourteenth Amendment do not exist.

Breaking: Pro-Life Rand Paul Wins by Landslide in Republican Primary in Kentucky

I wonder if "Catholic Online" would label a politician "Pro-Religious Liberty" if they said that States could outlaw the Catholic faith if they wanted to, in the name of "States' Rights."

Doing so would make just as much sense as labeling a pro-choice for states politician like Rand Paul "Pro-Life."
