You have so much patience... he's begging the question with the Nazi Germany question... I too am not a Constitutional Lawyer... but I imagine the 'regulation' in the bill is to specify the questions arising when complications in pregnancy arises (entropic pregnancy etc.). But then again, I'm no expert in entropic pregnancies either.

Actually, the bill is addressing any already existing or future regulations on abortions. The conversation did cover his use of the term "regulate". He used it in a way that implied "to regulate" means to make okay with certain restrictions. That is true of most current regulations. Here are the actual definitions of regulate:

1 a: to govern or direct according to rule b (1): to bring under the control of law or constituted authority (2): to make regulations for or concerning
2: to bring order, method, or uniformity to
3: to fix or adjust the time, amount, degree, or rate of

In Ron Paul's bill, it removes the jurisdiction of the U.S. Supreme Court to hear any case that challenges a state that prohibits or regulates abortion.

Let me make it clear, I support a Human Life Amendment to the Constitution. It would be more difficult to pass, needing a super majority in the Congress as well as a super majority of states to ratify it. It would be difficult to achieve, but on the bright side, it would be more difficult to undo.

On the other hand, I support Ron Paul's bill too, because it would only need a simple majority in the Congress and a president to sign it. We should have had this bill pass while the GOP controlled the Congress and the White House.

When a bill like this passes, we can then work to make abortion legal in all 50 states. While working to achieve that, we can at least make it illegal one state at a time, until it finally is illegal in all states. We need not compromise our principles in this process either!

Either Federal or State... it's a step in the right direction!
