Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

C. Everett Koop Wrote Forward To Ron Paul's Book

Yes, Ron Paul wrote a book in 1983 entitled Abortion and Liberty where he discusses the ramifications of the heinous act of the murder of innocents. Ronald Reagan's Surgeon General, C. Everett Koop wrote the forward where he praises Paul's thoughtful position on this issue and its impact on the natural rights of men:

ForewordOne might wonder why another book on abortion. Is there anything to say except the tricky alliteration of a new slogan? Has someone found a new message? Is there a person out there with credentials no one else seems to have?The answer to that last question is: “Yes.” Ron Paul is not only a physician, but he was trained in the discipline of obstetrics and gynecology and therefore is a the front lines in the battle against abortion. This physician was then elected to Congress four times and looks back on abortion as a problem he saw in biomedical ethics as a student, then as a resident and finally as a practitioner of obstetrics.The fresh insights that Ron Paul, the physician, brings to the question of abortion stem from the experience he developed as a Member of Congress, as he contemplated the relationship between natural rights and a free society.It is true that some of the old arguments about rights, viability, mother versus child, child abuse, health of the mother, and rape are considered in these pages. There is much more. The unique contribution found in this book is the examination of a free society in reference to that society’s responsibilities. Perhaps another way of stating it is that there is an examination of the child’s rights versus the mother’s obligations.The concluding warning is clear: a disregard for human life will not expand human freedom.The individual rights we all cherish are rooted in the value we assign to human life, especially innocent human life. The author’s credentials are unique and so is his approach to the diverse social problem abortion has become in our day.C.Everett Koop, M.D., Sc.D. 5 
Make a note of this, people. Unbelievers are watching Christians like thieves right now, many of them are supporting Dr. Paul in spite of being pro-choice. They see a lot of hypocrisy in professing Christians who talk and talk about being pro-life for little unborn babies, but don't bat an eye when a child in Pakistan is blown to bits by a US drone. They don't even care what unseen hands are guiding our foreign policy to do such things, having turned to idolatry and man-worship to store their trust in. I see a huge potential for soul-winning here, but too many "Christians" are enjoying their 10 minute hate sessions to see it.


  1. I saw that Michael Farris, the HSLDA guy, has been questioning Dr. Paul's pro-life credentials, as well as his pro-homeschooling credentials, based on Paul's reading of the 10th and 14th amendments. He's all about using the federal government in an unconstitutional way to do things it wasn't designed to do, and isn't capable of doing, just as long as it benefits his particular cause. We're going to see our right to homeschool disappear, the same way the right to life of unborn babies disappeared, and it will be removed under that same big-government philosophy that Farris claims is protecting us. It's not. They just haven't gotten to us yet.

    1. You know I got a post lined up just for Mr. Farris. I'll have to put it up tomorrow because it echos what you say here.

  2. Oh, yeas, most of has been gotten to. As long as the masses are fed that the life of the mother and incest and rape (which is a very low-very low percentage) is used for the main argument. If it is that important and the percentage is that low then a request with the real facts should be requisitioned for a case by case for the abortion? Which is still not ok! Adoption is still an option.
    It's just that the burden of the woman to bare children from the command of Yahueh is what is at the heart of the movement.

  3. out of thread-
    SOPA and P IP A--
    actions that we can take---I am against them-but- you know- I no longer 'trust the govt'....
