this is absolutely untrue.
Actually it is entirely true, here, straight from the horses mouth:
* Immediately saving lives by effectively repealing Roe v. Wade and preventing activist judges from interfering with state decisions on life by removing abortion from federal court jurisdiction through legislation modeled after his “We the People Act.”
* Defining life as beginning at conception by passing a “Sanctity of Life Act.”
I'm not making this up, he wants to bypass the judicial branch altogether and make abortion completely illegal. The reason that we have Roe V. Wade to begin with is because Texas courts couldn't decide.
Why should the federal government regulate what a person does with their own body? How can Ron Paul possibly say that he's for smaller government when he clearly wants to dictate what a woman can and cannot do with her own body? That's not smaller less intrusive government, that's massively intrusive.
Also, it is certain that if public schooling was eliminated, that several, affordable, schooling firms would open up to fill that gap.
Oh is that certain? Or, like colleges, they would set tuition out of the reach of lower income Americans and thus force many parents to quit their jobs in order to educate their children. That's the other part of the equation that Ron Paul doesn't address when he talks about home schooling. The fact that one parent would have to give up their jobs in order to be a full time teacher to their kids, which many families simply can't afford.

I have to reply to this typical american comment, If you don't want kids, then keep it in your pants, or don't open your legs! pure and simple, As far as maybe rape or along those lines, the the matter should be considered, but not just cause of the first... im biting my tongue here with this comment
Why should the government get to decide? Shouldn't it be up to the parents? I'm pro choice myself, and when I found out that my then wife was pregnant, we discussed the matter. We decided to choose life, and I am happy for that decision. We chose, we weren't forced via a law to have our son, we made a determination that was in the best interests of both of us. Being pro choice doesn't mean you will always choose to have an abortion, it means exactly what it says, choice.
