    Exclamation Ron Paul's book: Abortion and Liberty now available for free online in .pdf

    Download it here

    Please Digg it here

    This book has not been available until now. I got the book through inter-library loan and re-typed the whole thing to look exactly like the original. I also contacted the TX office for Dr. Paul and got permission to post it. I have had it done for a while but just now got permission today. I am also putting the finishing touches on his book Challenge to Liberty which is also about abortion and hasn't been available.

    I encourage everyone no matter which side of the debate you fall on to read this short book by Dr. Paul. He argues from a libertarian perspective. Enjoy!

    If you know people that are pro-life or who are thinking about supporting Huckabee, this will be a good item to persuade them with.

    I will also send this to the folks at RonPaulLibrary.

    shameless bump because this is already 4 pages deep and no one has viewed it. This could be huge!

    NOTE: someone just caught a HUGE goof on the last page quote. Should be life - not lie. HUGE difference. Correcting it and reuploading. Any other errata will be greatly appreciated!

    Small error on page 16.

    It reads:

    The fetus, for certain legal purposes, is recognized as a person. A baby born with an injury caused y drugs or medical neglect has recourse in a court of law claiming damages.

    "y" should be "by"

    Nice job!

    I did notice a typo on page 16 under the heading "Rights of a Fetus" the second sentence... "A baby born with an injury caused y drugs or medical neglect"

    Thanks! Fixed and reuploaded. The original link should have the error corrected.

    Thoughts so far?

    Thank you for uploading this.

    I think abortion should be legal in a very limited way (medical, rape, incest, and only to early 1st trimester), but he makes an excellent, clear, logical reason why there should be no need. This is a very good source to use for limited or no abortion. Please spread this to some of the Christian groups, they'll get more listeners if they quote facts rather than "It's a SIN!"

    This is great and pretty much lines up exactly with arguments I've used many times before!

    A few more suspected typo's:
    p.22 - Should read "The sTate of pregnancy is natural", not the "sate".
    p.29 - "this" starting the first complete paragraph on page should be capitalized.
    p.31 - "On e of the greatest . . . " should have "one" pulled together (I think there's an inadvertant space between the n & e.
    p.42 - In 2nd paragraph, "giving people . . . is not slaverY" instead of "slaver".

    Thanks for typing this up!

    I'd like to thank you without reservations, I've hand-typed books myself and I know how tough it can be to go back through your own typing looking for tiny errors.

    Can't say it was the most fun thing I've ever done, but definitely rewarding. All for a couple of great causes.

    Thanks for the heads up. It's now fixed. That explains the pitiful 25 diggs this has gotten. Come on folks, we need more diggs!

    One note: Firefox has a built-in spellchecker so if you install Firefox and copy and paste the data into any window (even the window of a forum such as this one) you'll be able to find a lot of mistakes because they'll be underlined in red.

    Good read. Question about how his proposals to change would work in principal. I was discussing this with someone who said that the way he was going about it was unconstitutional. He is pro-life, but thought Paul's method would not work.

    The second problem with Ron Paul's plan is one he no doubt hasn't considered: Even if sent to the individual states, the Constitution (as interpreted by the Supreme Court) remains the supreme law of the land. Even if you could somehow undercut Roe by removing federal jurisdiction, any state court is still under its strictures. Fundamental to our scheme is the notion that a state cannot abridge a constitutional right (since the 14th Amendment was ratified) ... Roe will still apply to each and every state. (A state can add rights not guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution, and many have. No state can abridge those rights.)
