An interesting interview with Ron Paul about the constitution and Roe v Wade:
Well, because the fact that they want to do it at a federal level is a total failure. How many abortions have there been since 1973, since it was legalized by Roe v. Wade? So they don’t have any argument that that would be a better way. They would argue – and I would agree – that my suggestion is not perfect, because there would still be abortions done. But in some states there would be a lot less abortions done. That would be my argument.
There are many states today who have had Roe v Wade foisted upon them. The democratic consensus is staunchly pro-life. So Ron Paul makes a whole lot of sense on this one, and pro-life activists could focus their attention on the more local level. Furthermore, an Obama administration could set the Supreme Court back decades on this one.
I for one like this libertarian approach to life.
