Brutha: This thread contains post about abortion from Ron Paul is Going to Win. and Ron Paul 2008 - Opinions?
I think it's better when we discuss that issue in a single thread.

Ron Paul is pro-life. In constitutional terms, your response should be, "so what". The federal government has no authority on abortion... (but we all think it does).
Roe v Wade is unconstitutional. There is no power set aside in the constitution for the government to approve or deny abortion. That choice is left up to the individual states. Ron Paul would get rid of the Federal ruling on abortion because the feds have no right telling you what to do in this arena.
The issue of abortion would go to the state-level where it belongs. You and your local legislators decide what is right for you. This was the idea way way back in the first place. The federal government was designed to safeguard your rights and only given limited powers. Ruling on abortion is not one of them.
