Rand Paul Supported Banning Abortion Without Exceptions For Rape Or Incest As A Senate Candidate.
According to MSNBC, “As we mentioned last week, Christine O’Donnell is one of the many Republican Senate candidates this year who are moving one traditionally hot-button issue way to the right of where it has ever been before. Yes, there have been lots of anti-abortion Republican Senate candidates over time, the whole party, almost without exception, wants to make abortion illegal. But this year, there are five candidates for Senate who want to ban it without exceptions for rape or incest. Christine O’Donnell in Delaware, Sharron Angle in Nevada, Ken Buck in Colorado, Rand Paul in Kentucky, Joe Miller in Alaska, all want the government to intervene if a woman gets pregnant because of rape or incest. They want the government to intervene to force a woman or a girl in that situation to give birth to the rapist’s baby or to their relative’s baby, no matter what she or the girl or woman’s doctor wants.” [MSNBC, 9/20/10]
Paul Introduced Legislation To Define A Fetus As A Person.
According to Office of Senator Rand Paul, “It is the duty of our government to protect this life as a right guaranteed under the Constitution. For this reason, I introduced S. 583, the Life at Conception Act on March 14, 2013. This bill would extend the Constitutional protection of life to the unborn from the time of conception.” [Office of Senator Rand Paul, Viewed 8/15/14]
