Ron Paul is the most conservative candidate for President of the United States, but many in the GOP would rather support a liberal abortionist like Benito Giuliani because he wants to "stay the course" as 100 of our boys are cut down every month.
Ron Paul 2008!!!
What’s the probability of this bill making it out of committee?
Don’t know. Sadly, I think that the GOP wants to keep abortion around so that they have something to run on and fundraise on.
Congress can overturn Roe v. Wade in one simple act, but will not. They would rather raise hundreds of millions of dollars to put pro-life judges on the bench that may overturn it at some point in the future.
Ron Paul’s Sanctity of Life Act of 2007.
It would be a good start - to getting human life valued again. Right now eagle eggs are valued but not human unborn children.
I have a book that Ron wrote about abortion. My kids grew up with his grandkids here in Lake Jackson Texas. He is a good and honest man.
Unfortunately, I don’t even think the GOP is pro-life anymore.
If you took a poll and asked GOP voters what they would prefer — the overturning of Roe v. Wade or “staying the course” in Iraq, it would be overwhelmingly Iraq.
Hence the high poll numbers for the pro-choice/pro-war Rudy wing of the party.
Ron Paul is schizophrenic. In the last debate he said we should pull out of Iraq so we could use the money for education and healthcare. Conservative?
From the link you posted: “Paul is pro-life. However, Paul holds that the United States Constitution does not grant the federal government any authority to legalize or ban abortion.”
That is the equivalent of saying that one’s rights are a function of the state in which one happens to be. Cross a state line and your rights can change. Do you find that the be the position of a ‘true conservative’?
Perpetrating more lies I see.
Paul is sponsoring HR 1056, which would be a $5,000 per child tax credit for any parent who pulled their kid out of public school and put them in private school.
That is what his reference to education was all about. He has similar health care bills in committee that would make private health insurance deductible just like it is for corporations.
Did you already know that and make your comment anyway, or were you unaware?
Did you read the The Sanctity of Life Act?
It says that unborn babies will have the same rights as all human beings.

“It says that unborn babies will have the same rights as all human beings.”
Yes, I read the act. I can find nothing in this act that would protect the life of an unborn at the federal level. This act would leave that to the states. All this does is remove jurisdiction from the federal court system allowing states to permit or ban abortions at their discretion.
Now will you answer my question from post 10 above: “That is the equivalent of saying that ones rights are a function of the state in which one happens to be. Cross a state line and your rights can change. Do you find that the be the position of a true conservative?”
The bill grants the same constitutional rights to an unborn baby as any other citizen has.
The citizens of the various states do have different rights and different laws.
Under the Constitution, only treason, piracy and counterfeiting are federal crimes, nothing else.
It IS the conservative position to leave power to the local communities.
“The bill grants the same constitutional rights to an unborn baby as any other citizen has.”
How can a bill grant ‘Constitutional Rights’? Does this bill amend the Constitution?
“Under the Constitution, only treason, piracy and counterfeiting are federal crimes, nothing else.”
So rape is not a crime on federal property?
“The citizens of the various states do have different rights and different laws.”
Can a state violate my Constitutional rights?
“It IS the conservative position to leave power to the local communities.”
Then a ‘true conservative’ would support and defend a local community that decided those with red hair and blue eyes could not vote?
Go ahead and post again that I'm a liar, ignorant and/or stupid, it just might sway me the second time.
This sounds very similar or almost exactly the same as the Life at Conception Act introduced by Duncan Hunter. I hope one or the other passes, as both would recognize life beginning from conception and would in affect make Roe vs. Wade worthless.
