Dr. Ron Paul, Former ObGyn, is Pro-Life

Rate this post

Tina Gabbay reports for The Blaze, Oct. 14, 2011, that GOP presidential contender Dr. Ron Paul unveiled a new pro-life ad campaign Friday in which the former OBGYN recounts a time when he witnessed a late-term abortion resulting in a live-birth. Paul, who personally delivered more than 4,000 babies, is interviewed in the ad stating, “This whole notion of life not being valuable just is something I was never able to accept.”
Paul relives his experience:
“I happened to have walked into an operating room where they were doing an abortion on a late pregnancy. They lifted out a small baby that was able to cry and breathe and they put it in a bucket and put it in the corner of the room and pretended it wasn’t there. I walked down the hallway and a baby was born early — slightly bigger than the baby they put in the bucket and they wanted to save this baby. So they might have had 10 doctors in there doing everything conceivable [to save that baby’s life].”
Tina Korbe of Hot Air writes that it “doesn’t feel like a campaign spot. It comes across instead as a public service announcement — and an utterly important one.”
“Paul comes across as so poignantly sincere when he speaks on the subject of life that it’s hard for me to believe this video is just a ploy for votes. Frankly, I wish more campaign ads were like this one — quiet encapsulations of important convictions,” she writes. “Paul told the anecdote about the baby in the bucket at the Ames straw poll and it was powerful then. I’m happy a few thousand dollars and airings in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada mean more people across the country will hear it, too.”

  1. He’s been a strong witness for Life for 33 years…..utterly consistent and representative of how he approaches matters of conscience.

  2. Although I commend Dr.Paul and there are a few issues I agree with him on… I still find him a jagged pill to swallow, jmho

  3. Yeah but Ron Paul is a Libertarian. He is not a Republican.
    And he thinks HEROIN should be legalized and that Marijuana should be legalized and that its UN-Constitutional to spend money to fight Internet Child Pornography (because child pornography is not in the constitution) and that George W. Bush was building CONCENTRATION CAMPs is the USA and about a million other totally WEIRD things.
    He will never ever be the President!

  4. Sigh. How one wishes that folks would actually listen to Dr Paul and not to what others say he thinks or believes.
    He has never said he thinks heroin or cannabis should be legalized, nor that GWB was building concentration camps, nor that he wants to “abandon” Israel.
    And it might be helpful if Carpente would define “Republican.” According to Republican rules, it is a personal choice and Rs are self-identified.
    Sigh. What do they teach . . .

    • Roberta,
      instead of sighing and just emoting that you “despise slopping thinking,” why don’t you instead educate and inform by pointing us to the evidence that Ron Paul never said all those things? That would be so much more constructive. The best way to combat malicious rumor is with the truth.

  5. PS to above post. One is not in the habit of commenting on such forums…and commented only because one despises sloppy thinking.

  6. 130 concentration camps are ready and waiting to be used for holding American dissenters.
