( CNSNews.com ) - Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) was the only GOP presidential candidate to make an appearance at the 35th annual March for Life on Tuesday, the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision giving women the right to abortion on demand.

Paul got an enthusiastic reception from the crowd, with many marchers waving Ron Paul signs and banners.

Dr. Paul, an OB/GYN, said he has delivered more than 4,000 babies and that in medical school he "quickly learned" that "when I dealt with a pregnant woman I always had two patients."

"The debate about when life begins should not be a debate," Paul said. "Let me assure you that all life begins at conception." Hear Audio

"You cannot defend liberty without defending life," he said.

Paul, who has 4.6 percent support nationally in poll averages, according to Real Clear Politics, is outspoken about Roe v. Wade as it relates to states' rights. He was a sponsor of H.R. 300, for instance, which would negate the effect of Roe v. Wade by removing the ability of federal courts to interfere with state legislation to protect life.

Paul also wrote legislation that seeks to define life as beginning at conception (H.R. 1094).

The name of another presidential hopeful was evoked during the pre-march rally when Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) spoke to the crowd, telling them that unborn children are "the most persecuted minority in the world today." Hear Audio

"On Sunday, Sen. Barack Obama criticized Americans for both our moral deficit and our empathy deficit and called on us to be our brothers' and sisters' keepers," Smith said. "Can Sen. Obama not see, appreciate, or understand that the abortion culture that he and others so assiduously promote lacks all empathy for unborn children be they black, white, Latino or Asian?

"Why does dismembering a child with sharp knives, pulverizing a child with powerful suction devices, or chemically poisoning a baby with any number of toxic chemicals fail to illicit so much as a scintilla of empathy, moral outrage, mercy or compassion by America's liberal elite?" said Smith.

"Abortion destroys the lives of our brothers and sisters, and the pro-abortion movement itself is the quintessential example of the empathy deficit," he said.

I know they got the numbers bad, but at least they are reporting it and Ron Paul looks like the only moral choice.

Think I'll include a mention on the new RonPaul.cc/Christian page I'm building.

I think the March for Life really boosted him in the eyes of many Christians.

believe with all your heart and it will happen. For if God desires it, it will happen. You do not realize the tremendous power you have through your faith, power more than the angels. If you believe with all your heart and trust God in what you are praying for, it will happen; but you must believe, you must trust, and you must have unconditional faith.
