Some other Republican candidates would hold to the same views, but pro-life Rand Paul is making them central to his campaign.
I saw this on Rand Paul’s Facebook page. Here is a version I found on Youtube.com:
I strongly believe in the sanctity of life and that an abortion takes the life of an innocent human being. As a physician, one of the first things we learn is to ‘do no harm.’ Since the Roe v. Wade decision, over 50 million children have been killed in abortion procedures. This is a tragedy. We cannot have liberty if we do not first protect life. As President, I will champion an agenda that supports and defends all human life, no matter how defenseless.
I doubt you will see one other major candidate for 2016 post anything like this—even those who, as a platform position, profess to protect the unborn.
On this point, I unequivocally—and unapologetically—stand with Rand.
