Gary Johnson has made the unusual move of trying to find middle ground on a very polarized issue. I think I've heard him say he's against late term abortions, but aside from that leaves it open ended as a "Women's Issue" by default.

56k, you do realize that there are many supporters of Ron Paul who are for or undecided on abortion, right?

We make compromises on issues that aren't as important to us, or that we still haven't made up our minds on. I personally don't know where I stand on abortion, though I do lean toward the pro-life side in many cases.

The truth is that there are of course pro-life people who support Ron, or people who came to Ron Paul and changed their mind on abortion due to the way he phrased it.

You made this topic simply to try and catch people slippin' or something, but it's just silly and juvenile.

As far as I understand Ron Paul's stand on abortion is that he's personally against it, but believes that everyone should be free to choose and leave it up to the states and the people.

This is why a lot of the pro-life folks were accusing RP of being pro-abortion. Ron's words as I remember were he's against it, but believed that everyone is accountable to God for what they do in this life.

RP was misquoted and misunderstood by a lot of folks and misrepresented too. I actually got so frustrated because people are ignorant of the real reasons for most wars and why the government chooses to involve itself in the drug and abortion business.

A lot of people still don't fully understand that Liberty and freedom always come at a price and that price is allowing people to make their own mistakes and be accountable to God alone instead of government. Governments morality will never reflect Gods morality, but will always be geared to reflect whatever it considers morality based upon the majority rule. Want government to regulate morality? That's why we have so many dead babies today.

I would never support abortion, but support the freedom and right for people to choose their own paths and be judged by God and not government. The feds need to step away from the abortion issue and leave it up to the states and the people to decide. All we're doing by giving government the power to decide for us is feeding the monster that will inevitably destroy us.

If it were up to the states--we wouldn't have had as many *legal* abortions as we've had nationwide because the feds were in control of this issue.

He wants to define personhood on a federal level. What he does not want, though, is for the federal government to be prosecuting abortionists. He wants that to remain at the state level. He does not, however, believe that abortion should be legal in any state but thinks those laws must be done at the state level per the Constitution.

I completely disagree with this. Abortion is murder and ought to be treated by civil authorities as such. There is absolutely no difference between murdering a child in the womb and a newborn. Why should one be legal and the other not? Do you support repealing laws which punish the murder of newborns, in the name of supporting 'the freedom and right for people to choose their own paths and be judged by God and not government'?

But ed, my point is that letting the states decide is the lessor of two evils compared to allowing the feds to control this issue. You choose. Do you think that the feds are going to become more Godly and moral with regard to the unborn child? No--the feds will follow majority rule and the majority are pro-abortion. What's the only good option left?

If the states decide--at least there's a better chance that the mortality rate of the unborn will decrease--not increase. It can't increase now because it's already nationwide. It can only go down from this point by giving the power back to the states.

I was around for Goldwater. He was a conservative. An interesting aside: Hillary Clinton was one of Barry's girls. LOL!


The Conscience of a Conservative is Barry Goldwater's classic which re-ignited the American conservative movement and made him a political star. The term "Goldwater conservative" became a household word. The book has influenced countless conservatives in the United States, helping to lay the foundation for the Reagan Revolution.

What does Ron believe that isn't 100% pro-life? I'm not necessarily disagreeing, I'm just honestly not sure what you are referring to.

Yes, because that's his personal belief, but he never wanted the feds to decide that. Paul wanted the states to decide.

Should the states ban abortion?

Personally, I think any state that is not willing to prosecute abortion should be forced to secede, but should not be coerced by the Federal government to do so in any other fashion. If a state did secede we'd have no more right to interfere than with abortions in Canada, However, I don't think the constitution as currently written would allow for my suggestion, a constitutional amendment should be required.

I see a MASSIVE difference between abortion and drugs, for reasons that eduardo describes later in this thread.

I was very much not a libertarian before Ron Paul rose to prominence, and this is pretty much the exact issue that kept me from being one.
All I ever knew before RP was that libertarians supported abortion, and that was a dealbreaker.

Many libertarians oppose abortion. Interestingly enough, many of those who are pro-choice nonetheless acknowledge that the unborn are human lives (Rothbard, Block, etc.)

He wants to define personhood on a federal level. What he does not want, though, is for the federal government to be prosecuting abortionists. He wants that to remain at the state level. He does not, however, believe that abortion should be legal in any state but thinks those laws must be done at the state level per the Constitution.

OK, so if a state decides to declare abortion to be a justifiable homicide, what would Ron do about it? It seems like the answer is nothing. And frankly, I think that's a better answer than trying to centralize the issue. Centralizing the issue is what got us Roe v Wade. Big governments are always corrupt and a government ruling over 300 million people always qualifies as big. They don't care about you nor do they care about their unborn child. That said, I could go for an amendment to the US constitution that defines life as beginning at conception and that kicks any state that refuses to recognize this out of the US.


I completely disagree with this. Abortion is murder and ought to be treated by civil authorities as such. There is absolutely no difference between murdering a child in the womb and a newborn. Why should one be legal and the other not? Do you support repealing laws which punish the murder of newborns, in the name of supporting 'the freedom and right for people to choose their own paths and be judged by God and not government'?

Yeah, I've never really understood this argument for that reason.

I agree. I'm mostly indifferent to the man, he was the best ballot option in 2012 but he's not great by any means. For what its worth, he did call Ron Paul "his hero" in the minor party debate (yes, I actually watched one of the minor party debates, sue me:p) so he's not among those moderate libertarians that were trying to bring Ron down.

He is in favor of the morning after pill which can prevent a fertilised egg from implanting. He's also made comments like this:
"If it’s an honest rape, that individual should go immediately to the emergency room, I would give them a shot of oestrogen."

That to me is not 100% pro-life.

I'm not sure what oestrogen does in those cases, does it kill an already conceived child, or does it simply prevent a child from being conceived in the first place?

The same question would apply to the morning after pill. I've seen some people say the morning after pill is an abortificacent while others say it does the same thing as a regular birth control pill.

For what its worth, I think the idea of trying to prosecute something like that would be downright ludicrous, and wouldn't work any better than trying to regulate drugs.

First the sperm fertilizes the egg, then the egg implants in the uterus.
Hormone treatments often allow fertilization and then mess with the implantation. Like the morning after pill.
RP rationalizes this by saying the morning after pill is nothing more than a more potent birth control pill. Same drugs, just more of them in a one-time dose.

What he's glossing over is that even though that particular kind of daily birth control pill might be legal, it's still an abortifacient. So anything based on it is also an abortifacient. It's an abortion inducing pill.

And Ed's right, for that reason, he's not 100% pro-life.

I know people that almost did not vote for Ron Paul because he was pro-life. He didn't change their minds. Personally, my view was mostly undecided on the issue. I saw that it was an extremely divisive issue that didn't have an affect on the way this country was run(into the ground). It has always been a hot button issue and I avoided it because of that. Over the last few years I've spent more time on self reflection and introspection and have gained a clearer image of my own identity and views on abortion. Ron Paul added comment to the topic but did not give me my view.

It is only an abortifacient IF conception has occurred; which we have no way of knowing whether or not that took place. Unless conception occurred (which usually it hasn't) then no abortion has been induced.

Ive always heard Dr.Paul speaking of it in terms of legality and science. Since you can't prove conception occurred, you can't consider it murder and would be tough to justify outlawing. Otherwise, we might as well outlaw anything that might end up being used as a murder weapon. But personally, he says he believes in life at conception and I doubt he would have his wife use those things.

He has said he would use them on a patient, so why would he have moral objections to his wife using them? Unless of course, he's a hypocrite when it comes to morality.

Would I be committing a mortal sin? (I'm just curious here, not looking to debate the issue, just curious.)

Should the morning after pill's usage be criminal? Should the use of regular birth control pills be criminal? How in the world do you enforce something like this?

(For what its worth, I honestly do not know enough about the distinction between conception and implantation. To my understand conception is when the fetus obtains its independent DNA so I would say that life begins at that point, and that killing it on purpose is murder. However, I'm not sure if birth control pills do it purposely or as an unintended side effect, and I also know that conceived children fail to attach about 75% of the time, so I see no way to prove that a murder actually occurred in this situation [did the pill cause the child to fail to attach, or did it just happen?])

I don't know enough about this issue, but the way I see it, there is no possible way the government (whether free market or otherwise) could protect an unborn child from an abortificacent that operates before implantation. It seems just as impossible as regulating drugs.

OK, I understand. I'm opposed to the use of any form of contraception which is likely to cause an abortion, but I don't oppose all contraception so I suppose you'd say I'm not 100% pro-life for that reason as well.

If the Constitution requires that all state governments be of republican form, and a state government allows the killing of babies, then the federal government could potentially be justified in pre-empting the state government because a republic recognizes the primacy of the individual.

This is absurd. Just like doing it to Canada would be absurd.

A republican government CANNOT recognize the primacy of the individual. Only voluntarism does.

A republican government CANNOT recognize the primacy of the individual. Of course it can... that's the definition of a republic.

The Unacknowledged Holocaust

Back in the 60’s the Federal Government came into the public schools and brainwashed us as little children with the message that the children we were about to have were unwanted because the population was rising so fast. They said the resources would be stressed. They launched a program called, “Zero Population Growth”. They pushed Family Planning and birth control pills. I think you and I now both know that you only have to trick people for their few child bearing years and there is no going back.

Many of us never had a say in the future of our unborn.

I am the result of two living cells. One from each of my parents. They are the result of two living cells, one from each of their parents. I wasn't just born. I am a continuation of life. I am a living thing that reaches back into time perhaps 400 million years and the result of billions of joining of pairs of cells. It is possible that if you were to follow my cells back to my parent’s cells and beyond that my family tree touches every living thing here on earth. That is if we limit ourselves to believing life was created here on earth. If it rained down from the immensity of the universe it could reach back into that immensity of time and space, and who knows what relationships and who knows what species.

My family line succeeded, at least until I came up against the Federal Government and their plan to control the population.

I have seen the Federal Government do little else to control the population.

The open border, United States laws only apply to some, is a serious slap in the face. No, not a slap in the face, it reaches well beyond that. Maybe back to the beginning of time and stretch to the bounds of the universe.

56KIncome for All sometimes generates some good discussion among RPF members, but Pete is generally right. 56F, Bausch&Lomb, PRB, etc. are generally weak. Guess metrosexuality affects ones debating prowess, too.

I was pro-choice like 2 years. That was probably because I thought abortion was a stupid issue in politics and there were more pressing issues. I'm 100% pro-life now since I've never heard a legitimate philosophical argument as to why abortion is justifiable.

Given that libertarian icons like barry goldwater and gary johnson support abortion, many paulites who would have otherwise supported abortion are in fact against it solely because ron is.

No, I am against it because the Word of the Lord Almighty calls it murder, which is just what it is!

For the record, I have been pro choice not pro abortion even after I heard Ron Paul was against it. Did I win anything?

You win the "Not Being a Single Issue Voter Award".

That's actually a big issue I've run into with some people... it depends on the issue and I know abortion is a big one for some people, but we have serious economic and social issues that are ripping us apart, even bigger than abortion most times.

Its hard not to think this is a top tier issue when you literally believe abortion to be murderous like I do.

Even still, I don't trust a murderous government to protect the unborn. So its a catch-22.

Personally, there are select circumstances in which I could vote for a pro-choice libertarian. The alternatives would all have to be bad, and the pro-choice libertarian would at least have to be a constitutionalist on Roe v Wade.
