Ron Paul Disusses “Honest Rape” And Abortion

Rep. Ron Paul

Isn’t it lovely to hear Ron Paul really not understand much about the issue of rape? The erstwhile GOP candidate recently told Piers Morgan that“If it’s an honest rape, that individual should go immediately to the emergency room, I would give them a shot of estrogen.”

One has to wonder what he means by ‘honest rape’.

Ron Paul, though, apparently does believe that life begins at conception, but does not want to base his abortion position on just that saying “A person immediately after rape? Yes, it’s a tough one. And I won’t satisfy everybody there.”

Representative Paul has remained in third place throughout the process of the primary process. Paul has, by and large, taken a hard Libertarian line

    What’s in a name?
    A rape by any other name
    would smell so foul

    Its hard to give an “honest comment” with such a small quote pulled from the context of his position but I’m going to step out on a limb and try to leave one anyway. I believe he means that an honest rape means that it is a true to its definition. He’s saying that if someone just wants an abortion or has buyers remorse then he wouldn’t support their desire to abort the child. I’m certain ron paul who has delivered over 3,000 babies knows better than most the consequenses and aftermath of abortions to the baby and mother.
