    On this I stand with women rights and parents rights to keep an unwanted or disfigured or disabled embryo and fetuses.

    The unborn are not individuals and are not developed to be able to sustain a life useful to society or governemnt and its the woman's right after all consideration of economic job and social needs of a full term child. Once a fetus is born by natural delivery it becomes a life to defend with it first breath. A heart beat or developing growth does not establish a life. Birth is when life begins, just as god and Jesus 50,000 years of human existent says.

    Abstention and other birth control use establishes the intent of copulation by both sexes and is relevant in decisions by mothers. We are plagued by hundreds of thousands of unwanted children and not one radical activist will take accounting to care for life a they they didn't create. They and their values are a contradiction to honesty and the meaning of responsiblity and its time to shut them down.

    "Rand Paul . . . courting evangelicals"

    You wouldn't think the two would have that much in common, considering the fact that Rand Paul is a Libertarian and a disciple of Ayn Rand, the fervently anti-Christian atheist.

    I respect Rand Paul and Ted Cruz for what they are trying to do.

    However, I'm mostly an Independent voter, and lament the dearth of such candidates. I share the good intentions of the Democrats, but not their despotic methods. I share the values of the Republicans, but do not agree with forcing these values on others.

    Thus presents my conundrum.
