The Pro-Life Ron Paul - Katrina Trinko - National Review Online
Tom Smith

“We must be pro-life or you cannot be pro-liberty the way I understand it,” Paul said at Ames. Speaking about his experience as a medical student in the Sixties, he talked about seeing one premature baby deliberately being allowed to die and another baby, also premature, being rescued by a diligent medical staff. “My conclusion that very day is you cannot have relative value for life and deal with that.” he observed. “We cannot play God and make those decisions. All life is precious.”

I can't think about this issue without remembering the 1970's feminists I knew who were fanatically pro-abortion but thought the government ought to be able to euthanize mentally retarded people. And not just "ought to be able to" but thought the mentally retarded actively ought to be put down as insults to their high intelligence presumably. Some pro-abortion sorts are libertarians but a lot are Nurse Ratched's.
