Gotta give it up for Rand Paul — especially if you hate women who have abortions.
In an AP story, Paul called Roe v Wade
“one of the most horrific judicial travesties in the history of our nation.”
Paul’s on board supporting a “Life at Conception Act” making the rounds in Washington. All these new members of Congress seem to be competing to show the world that they are more against abortion than each other.
No, Paul missed the memo on civil public discourse at U of L yesterday.
The act purports to make it a law that “all unborn persons are entitled to equal protection from the moment of conception.”
Why do all these old white guys spend so much time fighting over what young women do with their bodies? If passed, and let’s hope this never happens, women could be jailed for having abortions and the medical procedure would be performed in back alleys with coat hangers, just like the good old days.
President Obama, marking the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, called abortion a “fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.”
