I'm seeing a lot of women who support Ron Paul and I have to ask... How can you? I hope Kelly Clarkson never gets pregnant accidentally...
Ron Paul is Anti-Freedom (for Women).
His Sanctity of Life Act
would overturn Roe V. Wade, state
that life "begins at conception", removes federal jurisdiction (you can't take your case to the supreme court or use the privacy rights from the US
Constitution) and give states the power to protect
Read the Bill Here
SEC. 2. FINDING AND DECLARATION.
(a) Finding- The Congress finds that present day scientific evidence indicates a significant likelihood that actual human life exists from
(b) Declaration- Upon the basis of this finding, and in the exercise of the powers of the Congress--
(1) the Congress declares that--
(A) human life shall be deemed to exist from conception, without regard to race, sex, age, health, defect, or condition of dependency; and
(B) the term ‘person’ shall include all human life as defined in subparagraph (A); and
(2) the Congress recognizes that each State has the authority to protect lives of unborn children residing in the jurisdiction of that State.
So he would Ban Funding for Planned Parenthood
which would make birth control unavailable to poor women, then he would Overturn Roe V Wade, and make sure the state could arrest or punish a woman
and/or her doctor for having or performing an abortion.
If making birth control unavailable to poor women, then forcing them to choose between a back-alley abortion or having a child they cannot afford is
Ron Paul's idea of Personal Liberty, it's A LOT different than mine. I am under the impression that part of the federal government's JOB is to protect
the rights of ALL the people in this country, including WOMEN!
Just like every other politician, he supports the rights and freedoms that HE agrees with, but is willing to stick his nose INTO a woman's body and
legislate in there! Forget that! This man has no business in my body or in the reproductive decisions of ANY woman. I'm done with him. He preaches
freedom out of one side of his mouth, while being perfectly willing to create an atmosphere that promotes virtual slavery for women.
If you're a woman and you support Ron Paul, you may want to rethink this position...
