On the right-to-life issue, I believe, Im a real stickler for civil liberties. Its academic to talk about civil liberties if you dont talk about the true protection of all life. So if you are going to protect liberty, you have to protect the life of the unborn just as well.
I have a Bill in congress I certainly would promote and push as president, called the Sanctity of Life Amendment. We establish the principle that life begins at conception. And someone says, oh why are you saying that? and I say, well, thats not a political statement -- thats a scientific statement that Im making!
I know were all interested in a better court system and amending the constitution to protect life. But sometimes I think that is dismissing the way we can handle this much quicker, and my bill removes the jurisdiction of the federal courts from the issue of abortion, if a state law says no abortion, it doesnt go to the supreme court to be ruled out of order Source: Speeches to 2008 Conservative Political Action Conference Feb 7, 2008

Ah, so you and Ron Paul are going to exclude the Supreme Court from fulfilling their primary sworn duty, which is to protect the unalienable rights of all. That’s one of the most dangerously stupid ideas that ever came down the pike.
