One day I walked into an operating room, to just be an observant, which we would do generally, as a medical resident. They were performing this hysterectomy, which was a caesarean section. And they lifted out a fetus that weighted approximately 2 pounds, and it was breathing and crying. And it was put in a bucket and set in the corner of the room, and everybody in the room just pretended that they didn’t hear it. And the baby died. And I walked out of that room a different person.
Two possibilities occurred to me: the first is that he fabricated the story for emotional impact, the second, (which thoroughly disgusts me) is that he is the biggest hypocrite ever. The key phrase in this quote is “everybody in the room just pretended that they didn’t hear it“. Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe everybody would include Mr. Paul. Did he specifically mention he was there “to just be an observant” thinking that would absolve him of the same responsibility he attributes to everyone? He claims to be pro-life while throwing accusatory stones, from his glass house, at everyone present, for doing nothing; though he also did nothing while a living, breathing, crying baby was left in a bucket to die Maybe he was too afraid to jeopardize his standing as a medical resident to render aid to the baby. Whatever the scenario I think it gives us a peek into the character (and stupidity) of Ron Paul.
