Words: Paul is generally opposed to abortion and strongly opposed to any federal funding of abortion under any circumstances. “Abortion on demand is no doubt the most serious sociopolitical problem of our age. The lack of respect for life that permits abortion significantly contributes to our violent culture and our careless attitude toward liberty.”
Actions: Paul voted AGAINST barring the transport of minors to get an abortion (1999), FOR banning partial-birth abortions (2000), FOR banning family planning funding in US aid abroad (2001), FOR funding health providers who don’t provide abortion information (2002), FOR banning partial-birth abortions except to save a mother’s life (2003), and AGAINST restricting interstate transport of minors to get abortions (2005). NARAL Pro-Choice America has given Paul a rating of 65%. Planned Parenthood has given him a rating of 20%.
