A few things about presidential candidate Ron Paul and his stance on
"I do not like politics but I must say that Congressman Ron Paul,
physician and republican candidate for president, supports the
parent's right to make medical decisions. He has been an honorary
member of Michigan Opposing Mandatory Vaccines since the group's
inception in 1994. I am the Director of Vaccine Research for that
group and have respected Ron Paul because he is not afraid to take a
stand for what is right. He does not agree with mandating vaccines and
completely understands the risks to the American family." --Mary Tocco
Dr. Paul introduced a bill to amend the Department of Veterans Affairs
Health Care Programs Enhancement Act of 2001 to require the provision
of chiropractic care and services to veterans at all Department of
Veterans Affairs medical centers.

therefore 'practicing medicine without a license'.
"Forced mental health screening is just the latest of many state
usurpations of parental authority: compulsory education laws,
politically-correct school curricula, mandatory vaccines, and
interference with discipline through phony "social services" agencies
all represent assaults on families." - U.S. Representative Ron Paul,
During his medical career specializing in obstetrics/gynecology, he
delivered more than 4,000 babies. He refused to accept payment by
Medicare or Medicaid, preferring to not charge patients or to work out
a cash payment.
"When we give government the power to make medical decisions for us,
we, in essence, accept that the state owns our bodies." - U.S.
Representative Ron Paul, M.D.
