Ron Paul's Abortion Rhetoric: "Does Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul's strong language about abolishing a woman's right to choose put him at odds with the Libertarian party?." August 20, 2007, Steven White - The American Prospect

Any discerning reader of the above article can see The American Prospect staff is attempting to create a sense of separation between Ron Paul and his supporters from the Libertarian Party ... just as they favor separating mothers and babies growing in mother's wombs.
This magazine bills itself as "liberal intelligence," which these days can only be considered a contradiction in terms. The phrase "a woman's right to choose" is illogical and meaningless. Not all choices are right. One can choose to murder, but it is not a right choice. One can even choose to be a modern "liberal," but it is certainly not a choice guided by one's heart and soul. There is no love in "liberalism," or murder, or abortion.
The so-called "woman's right to choose" was invented as cynical marketing propaganda. David Kupelian, best-selling author, says: "In 'The Marketing of Evil,' I interview the co-founder of America's abortion movement, Bernard Nathanson. He founded the largest abortion clinic in the Western world, and co-founded NARAL, the vanguard group that got abortion legalized in New York in the 1960s. Most impressively, he sat around with a few others and literally made up the original marketing slogans, 'freedom of choice' and 'women must have control over their own bodies.' Here's what Nathanson told me. Quote: 'I remember laughing when we made those slogans up. ... They were very cynical slogans then, just as all of these slogans today are very, very cynical.' "
Of course, Dr. Nathanson, being truly intelligent and not merely an out-of-touch "intellectual," has since those days found his heart and soul. He is now established in his natural inner certainty, which is pro-life.
The LDS church (Mormon) teaches a concept to young men and women, a concept which another Republican candidate, Governor Mitt Romney, is well acquainted with: "Choose the right." A woman's obvious ability to choose cannot be taken away from her. But she can be taught to live by her heart and soul rather than by her raging hormones and or her fear of peer group disapproval ... so the chances of finding herself pregnant are greatly reduced. And if she does find herself pregnant she can be taught to accept responsibility for assuring her heart and soul the baby will be cared for, rather than let it be lovelessly flushed down the toilet of an abortion clinic. You cannot take away a woman's ability to choose, but you can take the high road by teaching her to choose what is right by her heart and soul.
The libertarian preparation device, A Course in Miracles, reminds us of our only logical criteria of choice:
It is quite possible to listen to God’s Voice all day without interrupting your regular activities in any way. The part of your mind in which truth abides is in constant communication with God, whether you are aware of it or not. It is the other part of your mind that functions in the world and obeys the world’s laws. It is this part which is constantly distracted, disorganized, and highly uncertain.
The part that is listening to the Voice of God is calm, always at rest and wholly certain. It is really the only part there is. The other part is a wild illusion, frantic and distraught, but without reality of any kind. Try today not to listen to it. Try to identify with the part of your mind where stillness and peace reign forever. Try to hear God’s Voice call to you lovingly, reminding you that your Creator has not forgotten His Son. He wants you to hear His Voice. He gave It to you to be heard.
