I totally agree that abortion is much more than a "convenience" or a "personal choice." I am 100% against abortion for convenience or birth
control, but I have to admit there are cases where it should be considered by the mother, and the doctor, and perhaps some other support people either
family or therapist or whatever. There are extreme cases of incestual abuse, or cases where the baby is going to be severely mal-developed, or cases
where the mother's life might be in danger. Even cases of rape where the pregnancy is caught early.
I'm with you, I don't see how the strict liberal agenda of Pro-Choice / Anti-Death Penalty makes any sense whatsoever.
Ron Paul wants to let each state decide for themselves, and in Texas, it is likely that the State may decide to be Pro-Life and Pro-Death Penalty.
That is still an odd philosophy, but as long as the people get the final say, instead of some politician, then I support it.
Ron Paul stands for far less Federal Legislative Power, and far more State and Local power, which means the people's voices stand to be heard and
recognized more effectively.
