While it can be fun and more that a little educational to get the occasional conservative newsletter, just to see how far out and paranoid they can get, I don’t remember exactly what I did to deserve this nutty anti-choice email from Rand Paul. Though, it is easy to see that the acorn doesn’t fall too far from the old tree.
“In the past, many in the pro-life movement have felt limited to protecting a life here and there — passing some limited law to slightly control abortion in the more outrageous cases.
But some pro-lifers always seem to tiptoe around the Supreme Court, hoping they won’t be offended.
Now the time to grovel before the Supreme Court is over. “
Geesh, over dramatic much? Who’s grovelling? It’s called the law. And, from what I Grok from the rest of the paranoid gibberish, Paul the Lesser seems to think that a “Life Begins at Conception” petition will magically make abortion just go away by means of the equal protection of ‘persons’ language of the 14th Amendment.
“A Life at Conception Act declares unborn children “persons” as defined by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, entitled to legal protection.
This is the one thing the Supreme Court admitted in Roe v. Wade that would cause the case for legal abortion to “collapse.” “
Hey, isn’t that one of those pesky amendments that his dad doesn’t like? Aren’t the states supposed to regulate that?
