Prerogative of the states is the first step.
It’s an improvement from the status quo. Win that first step and then go from there.
No it isn't. It is the giving up of the moral, constitutional, legal, and political basis of the pro-life cause.

The Pauls are hypocrites. They have no intention of doing anything to stop abortion. Those of us who believe in the right to life of all persons under our Constitution believe that it is the imperative duty of ALL officers of government, in ALL branches, and at ALL levels of governance to "secure the blessings of liberty to posterity." We are fighting to restore respect for what the Founders of this free republic called unalienable, and that they stated as the very reason for being of human government. And we're doing it not just at the national level but State by State by State. The Pauls and the others who hold to this immoral, illogical and unconstitutional pro-choice for states position are nowhere to be found on those State battlefields for life. They just plain don't show up.
Why? Because the only basis for the fight at the State level is on the basis of the Personhood of the child. And if they endorse that, it blows the cover off their claim that the whole country doesn't have an obligation to protect life under the Fourteenth Amendment.
One other thing: Even though the Paul position destroys the basis of the arguments against abortion, and therefore makes it impossible to stop it, even if through brute political force they were able to enforce their chosen policy, every single babe in the womb in America would still be in danger of being killed. The only thing standing between them and that fate would be their mother's "choice" and travel time.
