Rand Paul refuses to play the media’s game of “gotcha”

I have some reservations about Rand Paul, and Ed laid out some of his today, but I like how he handled this question about abortion

A Republican presidential candidate did something new and refreshing when challenged on his abortion views by the press: he threw it back in the face of the Democrats. 

When quizzed on his about his views on abortion, Republican Kentucky Senator Rand Paul avoided the gotcha game and told NH1 reporter Paul Steinhauser to ask DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz if it was okay to “kill a 7-pound baby in the uterus.”

“Why don’t we ask the DNC: Is it okay to kill a 7 pound baby in the uterus?” Paul reportedly said. ”You go back and you ask Debbie Wasserman Schultz if she’s okay with killing a seven pound baby that is not born yet. Ask her when life begins, and you ask Debbie when it’s okay to protect life. When you get an answer from Debbie, get back to me.”

I think he handled that quite properly. He did not dance around, or get mealy-mouthed. He put the moral onus back on Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Well played!

Pro-Choice activist: it is OK to kill the unborn, but don’t you dare label them Christian

Moral Retardation 101

A pro-life group at University Teaxs at Arlington put up 2,900 crosses to memorialize unborn babies who are aborted. A pro-choice rally to  get signatures against the display garnered 200 names. 

“We are going to present it to the Pro-Life Mavericks to show them the number of people who find this display distasteful and hopefully use it as an aid to convince them to remove it,” physics freshman Kayla Jette said.

About 15 students protested beside the display holding cardboard signs reading “Pro-Choice” and “Stand with Women.”

This is the second year the Pro-Life Mavericks have displayed the crosses on the Central Library mall. It was met with protest from pro-choice advocates last year as well.

Of course, the malcontent who organized the pro-abortion rally, decided to play the “Cultuarl Sensitivity” card

Wednesday’s protest was organized by English sophomore Ashley Radovcich, who felt the display of nearly 3,000 wooden crosses dotting the grass on the Central Library mall was insensitive.

“Every cross is supposed to represent an unborn child, but not necessarily every child that is aborted is Christian and therefore they’re being culturally insensitive, especially since we’re the fifth most diverse campus in America,” Radovich said.

So, to be very clear. Radovich is OK with slaughtering babies in the womb, but putting up a cross to represent that innocent life? That is insensitive to her. Again, to be clear, infanticide is OK, but placing a cross to the victim? That is somehow abhorrent to her.

Obama Regime Forced To Pay $570,000 To Pro-Life Legal Group Over Abortion Pill Mandate

Obama Admin Forced To Pay $570,000 To Company It Tried To Force To Obey HHS Mandate – Life News

.

The bill is coming due, literally, for the Obama administration over its attempts to force companies to comply with the HHS mandate, that compels them to pay for drugs for their employees that can cause abortions.

The pro-life legal group ADF obtained a settlement in federal court Friday that requires the Obama administration to pay an agreed-upon amount of $570,000 to ADF and allied attorneys who won a lawsuit at the U.S. Supreme Court against the abortion-pill mandate in Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Burwell.

Conestoga Wood is one of the companies that challenged the abortion mandate in court and the high court eventually sided with them and Hobby Lobby, the most prominent firm taking on the Obama mandate.

“The government does a serious disservice to taxpayers when it pursues unjust laws that force many of them to defend their constitutionally protected freedoms,” Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman told LifeNews.com. “While this case is finally over, many others remain. We hope the administration will stop defending its indefensible abortion-pill mandate and end its waste of taxpayer dollars on a fruitless quest to force people to give up their freedom to live and work according to their beliefs.”

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys represent Conestoga Wood Specialties and the Hahn family, Mennonite cabinetmakers in Pennsylvania who appealed to the nation’s high court after a divided federal appellate court ruled against them. The Supreme Court eventually sided with the company.

“The cost of religious freedom for the Hahn family and many other job creators across the country who face this mandate is severe,” added Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman. “A family should not face massive fines and lawsuits just because they want to earn a living consistent with their faith.”

The mandate could have cost the family nearly $3 million per month in fines if it doesn’t agree to live contrary to its Christian convictions. It forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy penalties by the Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies if the mandate’s requirements aren’t met.

Conestoga Wood Specialties owners Norman Hahn, Elizabeth Hahn, Norman Lemar Hahn, Anthony H. Hahn, and Kevin Hahn desire to run their company, a wholesale manufacturer of custom wood cabinet parts, in a manner that reflects their Christian beliefs, including their belief that God requires respect for the sanctity of human life.

It’s funny. Liberals tell us that government can have no rules, no regulations, no laws, nor restrictions on abortion. Choice! Reproductive freedom! Hands off our uterus’! Of course, when it comes to almost everything other than baby killing…
