Libertarian Ron Paul Says Liberty Should Take a Back Seat When It Comes to Abortion

The Hill: Ron Paul stresses opposition to abortion rights in Iowa speech, by Michael O'Brien:

RonPaul Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) strongly stressed his opposition to abortion rights in his speech to prospective voters in the Ames straw poll this evening.

Paul made a play for social conservative voters in the bulk of his speaking slot Saturday afternoon in Ames; the libertarian-minded congressman is gunning for a top-tier finish in the straw poll, where social issues have an emphasized importance.

"There is something that precedes liberty, and that is life," Paul said. "If we are to defend liberty … you have to understand where that liberty, and where that life comes from. It does not come from the government, it comes from our creator.". . .
