At an anti-abortion rally yesterday in DC marking the 35th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, presidential candidate Ron Paul caught in a YouTube video, said the following,
The Constitution protects all life. Unless we resolve this tremendous moral dilemma, just think, today, a baby, one minute before life, deserves protection, and one minute after life, we still pretend it's called murder.
This revelation coincides with a big, perhaps surprising, endorsement for Ron Paul, from "Roe," now a staunch abortion opponent, named in the decision Roe v. Wade. In her endorsement, "Roe" (real name Norma McCorvey) said,
I support Ron Paul for president because we share the same goal, that of overturning Roe v. Wade. He has never wavered."
The endorsement sparked varied reactions from Paul supporters, as many are drawn to the candidate because of his positions against the Iraq War and favor of civil liberties, but may not be aware of the candidates stance on social issues like abortion.
