And...Then Rand Paul Did Something Foolish
 
Rand Paul Introduces ‘Life at Conception Act’
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013...onception-act/
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul on Thursday introduced the “Life At Conception Act,” saying that the “right to life is guaranteed to all Americans.”

“I plan to ensure this is upheld,” the Republican senator added.

“Sen. Paul introduced S.583, a bill that would implement equal protection under the 14th Amendment for the right to life of each born and unborn human,” the senator’s office said, per a press release.

“This legislation does not amend or interpret the Constitution, but simply relies on the 14th Amendment, which specifically authorizes Congress to enforce its provisions,” his office adds.

Here is what Section 1 of the 14th Amendment states:
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
The bill has 15 cosponsors (all Republican) including Sens. John Barrasso (Wyo.), John Boozman (Ark.), Richard Burr (N.C.), Daniel Coats (Ind.), Thomas Coburn (Okla.), Michael Enzi (Wyo.), Deb Fischer (Neb.), Charles “Chuck” Grassley (Iowa), John Hoeven (N.D.), James “Jim” Inhofe (Okla.), Mike Johanns (Neb.), Jerry Moran (Kan.), James Risch (Idaho), John Thune (S.D.), and Roger Wicker (Miss.)

“The Life at Conception Act legislatively declares what most Americans believe and what science has long known — that human life begins at the moment of conception, and therefore is entitled to legal protection,” Sen. Paul said.

“The right to life is guaranteed to all Americans in the Declaration of Independence and ensuring this is upheld is the Constitutional duty of all Members of Congress,” he added.

The majority of the country is prolife. If a person is a single issue voter on abortion, they would never support a GOP candidate. The foolish thing that people do is speak insensitively about rape and abortion.

The majority of the country wants abortion to be legal. It's stupid to even bring it up.

Oh, Taco. Where for art thou, Taco? BEP? I've been a Paul supporter for a long time, but this is bullshit. Especially coming from the leader of the Tea Party. Help me understand this.

He does this because he believes in liberty. And he correctly recognizes that you cannot protect American liberty without first protecting American life.

Stay the hell out of my life! ... But tell women what the hell to do with their bodies! Medical science might disagree with my assertions, but the sky fairy I believe in tells me its true!

No shit. We are going defend American Liberty by making the Federal government decide what is best for an individual. And we, the Federal government own your body for 9 months and you will do what the federal government mandates.

Yeah, that does sounds like a constitutional personal liberty advocate.:shake:

Aren't sperm alive? Where's the law protecting THEIR right to life?

Why any politician comes close to this subject is mind-numbing.

WhawhaWhat 03-16-2013 08:35 AM

So they are telling women that they might be prosecuted for having a miscarriage? I understand that it probably says somewhere in the bill that that won't happen, but most people won't read more than the headline and maybe the first paragraph of the story.

How do Republicans expect to gain votes with this shit? They are only speaking to their already dwindling base.
