I read a great article in the WSJ today on What Ron Paul Wants. I agree with the article. Ron Paul makes me nervous. Not only does his pro-life record match the 50% of Harry Reid's, I think he uses "states' rights" as a cop out.
What about the Mann Act that prohibits crossing state lines selling sex? Is Mr. Paul fighting to get that repealed?If Mr. Paul is pro-life, hew would support a Constitutional Amendment ban abortion. Without Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are not possible. Our founding fathers were clear that we all had the unalienable right to LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
States' rights is a valid argument, but we must realize that we live in an America where States' Rights have been watered down and where a Federal Government has often overstepped its bounds. We do need to work on giving rights back to the states, but we also need to protect the number one unalienable right, too. The right to life. The Roe v Wade decision made abortion a federal issue and now we must work to defend life at the state AND federal level.
