Appearing on CNN last Friday, Rep. Ron Paul told Piers Morgan that he would support a woman’s right to an abortion in cases of “honest rape” (video below).
Rep. Paul suggested that some women lie about rape to terminate their pregnancies and said women should not have the right to abort a “nine-pound baby."
Rep. Paul said: "If it’s an honest rape, that individual should go immediately to the emergency room. I would give them a shot of estrogen or give them."
Morgan questioned: "You would allow them to abort the baby?"
Rep. Paul answered: "It is absolutely in limbo, because an hour after intercourse or a day afterwards, there is no legal or medical problem. If you talk about somebody coming in and they say, well, I was raped and I’m seven months pregnant and I don’t want to have anything to do with it, it’s a little bit different story."
