    Well this is just about what I expected from Rand Paul. Just like his father he lets no opportunity to bury himself pass by. Riding high on some common sense notice, he uses that newfound audience to completely make an out and out fool of himself. Way to go Rand. I knew you would do it.

    @methinks This sort of thing is why I don't jump bandwagon to bandwagon. A leopard doesn't change his spots, a monkey doesn't type a novel and a Paul will fall off the ledge about every third time he steps out.

    @jessejaymes Yup...couldn't agree more. He was doing so well with that filibuster, but stupid shit like this hits the reset button every time.

    Agreed. He must be living inside a self-righteous bubble to think the will of the people will support this, along with the supreme court overturning Roe V Wade. What special interest group has the $ to lobby to aid in its fruition? Its not election time, so why is he now pitching this wedge issue?

    Government is not God. When God wants abortions stopped, he will stop it in such a way to where no person or political party can take the credit. Both major parties need to stop trying to legislate their version of morality. It is all about freedom.

    God forbid a politician stand up for something he believes in....and maybe he dont care about votes...maybe just maybe he just cares about unborn lives??? You all are always defending gays, Mr. Obama, illegals etc. etc. This guy just wants to defend these little lives that never have a chance...god bless him.

    I don't defend Obama - he's a traitor. Haven't defended gays- not my interest. I'm one of the most vehemont here about running illegals out of this country. I'll defend a human life when it becomes a human life- right around six month's gestation.

    @Knightkore Are you God? Do you know when a life is a life? No you don't. Neither do I. Neither does Rand Paul. It's an arbitrary figure and the Majority of people in this country do not agree that life begins with fertilization. I support the morning after pill over surgical abortion but I do not believe that without formation, heartbeat/pulse you have life. Neither does the majority of America.

    @jessejaymes And the majority of America voted for President Hussein Obama and continues to elect the same people over and over again.....I'm not too hot on going with the majority.....

    Unfortunatley, there goes his 2016 bid. Even mostly conservative women want that option for any number of reasons, not just the one I harp on most. We need to just take it off the table and let GOD deal with them later.

    Yah, gotta agree with ya there. Why is it promising candidates throw away their chances on issues where the country is pretty evenly split? I will never understand that. He could have run on a fiscally sound and liberties platform and won over more than just extremes in the GOP.
    Gah.

    @Fishbone345 I agree with what you guys are saying, except the part where you call rand a "promising candidate". He's in no way a promising candidate. His father had a shot, but Rand is simply to "crazy" to be considered. He also lacks the credibility his father could bank on.

    I'll go along with that. Believe what you want to believe, but stop trying to mete out "God's judgment" based on your beliefs. If you have faith in your beliefs then you can feel satisfied that Godless heathens will suffer on Judgment Day, while those of us who don't believe the way that you do can get on with our lives without you getting in to our business.

    @Dan_Tien I know that makes it easier for a woman to kill her inconvenience, I mean baby, when planned parenthood tells her there is no GOD therefore no repercussions.

    God Bless you Rand Paul, I pray you are successful!

    I will repeat my thoughts on this issue:

    Any nation that can kill the most innocent among us in the womb will not value your life either.
  • #25
    !
    That is so true. I never thought about it like that. And right now, what is obama doing? He's using drones to spy on the American people. He's already killed two Americans without trial or jury. You're right, if we won't defend the most defenseless among us, then all of us are targets.
  • #113
    !
    We're certainly not a nation that values the most innocent in all the other countries we destroy. I guess only American babies are important.

    @Jean

    Do you support war? Did you protest our wars in Vietnam or Iraq or Afghanistan or any of the other places in the world the U.S. goes and kills innocent people? Did you protest war as much as you protest abortion? Find out how many innocent Vietnamese children were killed and maimed during all those years. Research how many Iraqi children died because we invaded that nation.

    Please don't pick and choose life. Yes, I agree. ALL life is precious. That includes the murderer in prison. You can't have it both ways.

    America is THE most violent country in the industrialized world. Abortion has nothing to do with it. We have had no respect for life since the beginning of our nation because we see war as the answer to everything. We kill because we it's all we know.

    We have a country that hates welfare mothers and abortion at the same time. How much sense does that make? We hate the thought of giving a hungry American child a free lunch at school, but we'll give 12 billion dollars to Egypt to help their economy. And no one utters a word of protest about that. But let a woman ask for food for her children and watch the fur fly. Let her seek an abortion for a child she can't afford and watch the fur fly.

    Again, we can't have both ways.

    @PayThatCEO

    I will repeat ALL life is precious. with that being said....I support war as a DEFENSE....I do not support war just to be an aggressor. If we do not value our own unborn we will not value the life of anyone else. Charity begins at home. Morals play a great part in this. Until we have moral leaders , leaders that respect God's laws there will be innocents of all ages and nationalites killed as part of the evil in this world.

    Where was the momentary luster? This appears to be nothing more than the latest of a series of ignorant, stupid, and poorly thought through statements by the congressman.

    @Litdes I don't know about you, but I thought he shined a bit when he stood up for us on the drone issue.

    @AlexMIA funny, I thought he made himself look a fool. The Posse Comitatus Act prevents the use of US military forces being used in the US for anything but law enforcement. Targeted killing hardly qualifies.

    @Litdes Well if you're so gullible to believe a government could never overstep its boundries, then I could see how the concept might be hard for you to understand.

    I will never understand the desire to make an issue that America is evenly split on, part of their campaign. It will always lose votes for you. Every single time.
    Could have run on a liberties platform, with fiscally conservative ideals and would have lured voters from the middle. Instead killed your chances on an issue that will never win votes.

    Wow that's a real screw up for him. Once again instead of dealing with the cause of a problem we try and ban a solution. It's like trying to get rid of garbage by banning garbage dumps. It does not work.
  • #54

    Murder is a solution? Interesting. Yet the death penalty on murderers and rapists is not a good idea and somehow wrong? Fascinating. What kind of progressive liberal Bizarro World relative morality do you follow?
  • #201

    Many ask that politicians be more honest and then when a politician is brave enough to be honest, those that don't agree with him, say if you don't agree with us liberals, we don't want to hear what you have to say and condemn him for being honest.

    @Neo_NtheMatrix No, because he wants to interfere with a womans right to choose and dictate to others based on his own beliefs. Babies are tiny children that have alreadybeen born. They are alive. They can breath and function on their own as long as someone feeds them (and hopefully changes the diapers). Unborn fetuses are not babies.

    @PoliticalSpice
    I'm going to agree with you, I'm pro-choice for the simple fact that you can't allow someone to dictate what you do with your body, I happen to also agree with professionally assisted suicide, because it's my pain and suffering not yours.
    it may be possible some peoples morals differ from mine.
  • #46

    @wonka45ACP Look, I don't want to encourage suicide, but can I ask why one would need professional assistance? Isn't anyonecapable of a drug overdose without help?

    @PoliticalSpice
    I don't encourage it' and I guess I need to say I'm talking about the extreme few cases that have been publicized court cases. Sorry.

    Dumb move Rand Paul! Stop trying to appeal to the religious zealots. Abortion is bad and immoral as a form of birth control, however banning things is bad is a slippery slope.

    I agree, I should have added that it should be socially unacceptable and let the states decide, as far as I know abortion was always legal in new york before roe, it should be allowed to devolve back to that level. No one got my return of the living dead referance on that zombie post. In the words of comic book guy BEST.... ZOMBIE MOVIE..... EVER. ever seen it? came out in 1985.

    Mary,can we get a story about the philedelphia abortionist on trial for murdering at least ten babies after they were born viable and at least one woman. Gosnell is his name, and his attorney claims his prosecution is "a modern day lynching" .
    I may have missed it here, if so I. apologize

    I'll never understand this little caveat of liberalism. 20 murdered first graders is a tragedy, I get that, but 20 murdered fetuses is a victory for women's rights. I'm quite sure that this bill doesn't just say no abortions written in crayon like the article insinuates.

    If we ban politicians who would be willing to do their job.. and if we don't we simply have to put up with silly bills. Now if we can discourage contests to see which team can do the most of them.

    @Drake_Burrwood nope, I wouldnt, I dont believe that I should be telling a woman what she can or can't do with her body, or that people should be forced to accept gay marriage, or that they can't drink a 32oz soda if they feel like it....i have no use for such nonsense or those that feel they are above the rest of us and can dictate how we should think and feel, no matter what party they represent.

    @SavageMazx Yes but you and I aren't politicians, the point is to put them all some place where they think they are doing something. But they have started cheating they are attempting to do something with out attempting the impossible job of actually working together.
    I used "silly" since I think it is a more Sesame Street word they may get nervous if they get the picture of having to explain what they're doing to Big Bird, or Grover.

    It's odd that Bible believers insist that life begins at conception when the Bible teaches life begins with the first breath. They didn't know about conception back then, they thought a man's "seed" was seed, and it grew in the womb.
