The interesting thing is when you’re in the neonatal nursery and you’ve got a one-pound baby, everybody acknowledges that that baby has rights, the Bill of Rights applies to that baby and nobody can hurt that baby… It’s a one-pound baby.

But a week before, even a full-term seven-pound baby has no rights, according to the way people are looking at it, and I think that is a big mistake…

I think, and I often say in my speeches, that I don’t think a civilization can long endure that doesn’t respect the rights of the unborn.

~ Sen. Rand Paul, as quoted by Examiner.com, August 12
