Ron Paul: Against Women's Rights

No thinking person should support Ron Paul

How stupid can people be? I know several people who would have previously counted themselves as members of the Democratic or Libertarian parties who are now supporting Ron Paul for president. 

 

Ron Paul does not support women’s rights. 

 

Ron Paul is not a Democrat, nor is he a Libertarian and one of the main differences that he has with either of those two political parties is that Ron Paul is anti-choice. You don’t believe it? Watch this horrific video that was aired in Iowa which clearly shows Ron Paul talking about his stance on Personhood, or when life is formed. 

 

Hello, people, what are you thinking? Seriously? You don’t mind supporting a candidate who runs political campaign ads stating that he is not pro-choice? You aren’t afraid that women in some places will have limited access to contraceptives? That’s not a big enough of an issue for you to concern your little heads with? You’d rather support someone like Ron Paul who is only popular because he seems different than the normal candidate? 

 

I’m sorry, but supporting someone without knowing his stance on a basic issue like a woman’s right to choose is totally and completely irresponsible. Women’s rights are under attack in the United States and we need a leader at the helm of our government who will support a woman’s right to choose. 

If the people in the United States actually elected Ron Paul, women’s rights would be threatened even more. As we all know, the President of the United States has tremendous power when it comes to appointing judges to the courts. We need justices within the court system who are clear-headed and not swayed by the views of the fundamentalist Christians who are trying both to take over our nation and to blur the lines between Church and State. 

 

There is absolutely no reason for any thinking person to support Ron Paul. 

 

 

Ron Paul may have voted against the war in Iraq, but so did President Obama who gave a speech against the war in Iraq in 2002. It is terrifying to imagine someone so conservative in the White House. Just consider all the funding cuts and conservative judges that would come under the watch of Ron Paul. Frightening.

 

As someone once said, “Ron Paul is just Ross Perot with better lines.”

I am pro-choice, but when it comes to the race for president I agree with Ron Paul an pretty much everything else. Luckily Ron Paul feels that the decision of whether to mandate abortion legal or illegal should be left up to the state. It isn'ta call that the federal government should make. This makes your point on whether or not Ron Paul is a good candidate for people to want for president null and void.

I would much rather vote for a candidate who came to the conclusion that life starts at conception through an occupational means than by a religious means even if I don't agree with the conclusion. The pros vastly outweigh the cons, and you should probably do a little more research into the other issues at stake. Just because his view is different than yours on abortion is no reason to discount a great candidate especially if he isn't going to try to enforce it. You need to take that up with your local government.

If I were a "thinking people" I would believe that my vote for President would encompass a wide array of different issues, not based off of only one social issue that the President would have little to no impact on in the first place.

Paul will never use the power of the federal government to restrict the liberties of any US citizen, including a womans right to choose. He feels this is a state issue and a state issue alone, and based off of the vote in a very pro-life leaning state today in Mississippi voting against anti-abortion "personhood" amendment shows that the states will vote accordingly.

Paul is worthy of respect and admiration. His character is flawless and his word is chisled in stone. What a concept, to be an honest politician.

You should really look at his real world issues like foreign policy and monetary policy, these are the most important issues of the day, these are the issues where he stands alone and his answers are spot on.

Have a good day.

The thinking people that I refer to are people who respect women and who respect the separation of church and state. Ron Paul's views on women's rights could severely restrict women in many of the conservative states in the United States. Even though I live in a more liberal state, I cannot in good conscience support a candidate who is not in favor of women's rights.
