Paul Ryan: very VERY opposed to the right to choose

Just in case there was any doubt…

Paul Ryan has affirmed his own personal opposed to abortion even in the case of rape and incest for the first time since Todd Akin thrust the issue to the forefront of the national debate. But now that he’s Mitt Romney’s running mate, he says he’ll stand behind Romney’s position that abortion rights should be conferred to rape and incest victims, and mothers whose lives are at stake.

“I’m very proud of my pro-life record,” Ryan told WJHL-TV in Virginia in an interview aired Thursday. “I’ve always adopted the idea, the position, that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life.”

The fact is, Paul Ryan’s views on a woman’s right to choose are as extreme as any Republican lawmaker in the United States, and his election as vice president would be a tremendously negative step backwards for women’s rights.

  1. Its good to see Paul Ryan as a Catholic understands that killing a child is wrong, unlike some so called Catholics here who have no problem with murdering the unborn

    1. I have a problem hypocritical small government conservatives wanting government out of our lives, except when it comes to same sex marriage and a woman’s right to choose.

      I also have a problem with small government conservatives who preach about “freedom” while working to take away the right of women to be free to make their own decisions regarding their reproductive health.

      1. As a small government conservative I believe in life, liberty and private property. I think a basic obligation of government is to protect lives. Small government certainly does not advocate any individual taking another human life, even under the guise of some sort of “reproductive right.”

        1. So you don’t believe in the right to privacy?

          Ironic that you’d mention liberty though, considering you don’t seem to support giving women some liberty to make their own choices regarding their own bodies.

  2. Well, I have a problem with allowing politicians to empower attackers to dominate and humiliate a victim by continuing silence their voice. Furthermore, I have a problem with 23 states impeding the path of a survivor by endorsing the right of an attacker to sue for custody of a child that under any normal circumstance would not treated as a talking point. But hey whatever it’s rape she probably wanted it anyhow so just get over it.
