Ron Paul Tells CNN’s Piers Morgan Only “Honest Rape” Warrants An Abortion. (Honest Rape?)

During an appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan, GOP presidential hopeful Ron Paul was asked whether as a man with daughters and granddaughters, Rep. Paul (R-TX) thinks that abortion is warranted if a woman has been impregnated by a rapist.

“If it’s an honest rape,” Paul replied, “that individual should go immediately to the emergency room, I would give them a shot of estrogen.” He claimed, however, that if a woman is “seven months pregnant” and says that she was raped, “It’s a little bit of a different story.” Source

I think that you misunderstand me. I am not advocation FOR abortion in the case of rape. I am advocating for a rape victim to not be forced into pregnancy.

Are you saying that you are not pro-abortion, but you are pro-choice?

People seem to forget that the ONLY WAY for a pregnant women to immediately become not pregnant is to KILL THE BABY.

Of course I believe in free will. I also believe that abortion is murder except in rare cases where failure to abort would result in the loss of both mother and child.

I do not believe as you apparently do, that it should be legal for a woman to abort a baby who was conceived during rape.

A medical procedure that is NECESSARY to save a woman's life and has the UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE of the baby dying is not considered an abortion by the pro-life movement.

I do not believe as you apparently do, that it should be legal for a woman to abort a baby who was conceived during rape.

To be fair, the troll only believes that women who are violently raped should be allowed to kill their babies.

Yes, I neglected to mention that the woman must prove that the rape was violent, and then she can kill the baby.

“Do you realize that impregnation from rape occurs at the time of the rape, not later?”

Do you realize that it takes two to three days for sperm to reach egg?

Fertilization is not instant.

I’m done with this thread.

More like a few minutes to five days. But don’t let facts get in the way of your blood lust.

Wrong. You flunk.

Sperm can reach the Fallopian tube & fertilize an egg 30 min to two hours after sex.

Why don’t you just concede defeat & admit you’re pro-choice.

So, if Ron Paul deemed that an allegationis credible, he would perform an abortion??? Wow! Then, Ron Paul is not pro-life.

Ron Paul is pro-life, but it seem like you are pro-rape. Who is the pro-life candidate for you in this election?

He should define “honest rape”. I believe all life is sacred, regardless of consequences. It’s unfortunate that rape happens, and it’s unfortunate that it’s used as a justifiable means toward an abortion.

Not surprising. His pro-life credentials were shaky, at best.

This whopper just clinches it. He's a pro-choice fraudster.

Do you support the nine to ten month imprisonment of a rape victim to ensure that her rapists seed is brought to term?

Do you realize you are in full agreement with Barack Obama?  The fact that you call it an imprisonment shows how little regard you have for the sanctity of life.

I think its pretty obvious what he meant. I think its pretty obvious he’s right.

Abortion is murder pure and simple. Don't punish the baby to death just because the father might happen to be a registered sex offender for example. Ron Paul has revealed himself to be a pro-choice goof ball because most of his base are pro-choice leftists. He should stop calling himself a Christian if he believes an "honest rape" is a justifiable means of killing an innocent life.

A zygote is a two-celled embryo. An embryo is the basis of a living being.

Your decision and the woman’s decision are both trumped by the Founding Documents.

And how are you going to ensure that the human being that you are loving and protecting does not make a decision that you disagree with?

You ask yourself that while you assume the unborn baby wants to die.

Ron Paul’s ignorant word choice is alarming and upsetting; I’m thinkin’ of sending him a dollar so he can go buy a clue.

Many thousands of Conservative Christians need to wake-up, too.

Sigh.
