Playing the “war on women” card, that worked so well in 2012 for the divisive win-at-all-cost power seekers that run the Democrat Party, GOP candidate Sen. Rand Paul was queried about abortion by the party minions that work in its AP propaganda division.
Wrote AP’s Phillip Elliot: Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, a newly declared Republican presidential candidate, is dodging a central question about abortion: What exceptions, if any, should be made if the procedure were to be banned?
“Why don’t we ask the DNC: Is it OK to kill a 7-pound baby in the uterus? You go back and go ask (DNC head) Debbie Wasserman Schultz if she’s OK with killing a 7-pound baby that’s just not born yet. Ask her when life begins, and ask Debbie when she’s willing to protect life. When you get an answer from Debbie, come back to me.”
So Ms. Wasserman Schultz then responded saying “Here’s an answer. I support letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved. Period. End of story.”
So Paul then, correctly, noted: “it sounds like her answer is yes, that she’s okay with killing a seven pound baby.”
There is an obligation to protect the weak and helpless and obviously life starts somewhere. Ms. Wasserman Schultz has revealed in a rather definitive way that monsters now run the Democrat Party.
Rand Paul Defense Of Life — Rand Paul (R-Ky), who may be the freshest breeze to blow through Washington since Reagan, has unveiled The Life At Conception Act (S 583) which “declares that the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human being beginning at the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual comes into being,” and “prohibits construing this Act to require the prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child.”
Paul, who has a doctorate of medicine from Duke and spent two decades in private practice, is following the evidence to where it leads and deserves only praise.
It would be adequate to simply seek to return the debate to the states — which means continuing the fight to overturn the legally and logically dubious Roe v. Wade decision — and far more safer politically. It would also be politically safer to make a stand using the traditional standard as to the existence of life which is the pulse and starts for certain four weeks after conception.
Still, if you want to be absolutely certain that another’s life is not being taken, then conception would be the starting place that you would chose.
Boys Latin Hears Rand Paul At Commencement — Yesterday’s (June 10) commencement speech at Boys’ Latin of Philadelphia Charter School was given by Sen. Rand Paul, the outspoken, anti-corruption advocate from Kentucky and Tea Party favorite.
He used the opportunity to promote education and the empowerment of parents.
“I’m lucky to speak to a group of students who are not only an exception
to the rule, but come from a school that produces exceptional students
as a rule,” he said. “Boys Latin is a great example of the kind of
education I think we need to move toward, where parents can choose what
kind of education their children receive, where parents can choose an
education their children may not have otherwise had.”
The school has 368 students — all boys, 99 percent of whom are black and 86 percent of whom are eligible for a free lunch.
