Writing for the Daily Beast, Ben Adler points out what he calls a hypocrisy in Senator Rand Paul‘s stance on abortion and immigration. Paul wants to eliminate birthright citizenship, but he also supports legislation declaring that life begins at conception.

Under the current interpretation of the 14th Amendment, which Paul and Vitter oppose,citizenship is given automatically to anyone born on U.S. soil. So Paul wants to expand the 14th Amendment to cover the fertilized embryos of American citizens while restricting it to exclude the babies of illegal immigrants. It’s not clear where the fetus in an illegal immigrant’s uterus would fit into this equation.

State Senator Dan Seum sent a letter and survey to his constituents recently saying he was opposed to “liberal power-grabs.” The survey poses questions on several topics, including:

  • Amend Kentucky’s Constitution to allow you to choose your health care insurance rather than being forced into a government “public option” system controlled by bureaucrats in Washington DC
  • Amend Kentucky’s Constitution protecting public displays of religion, including the Ten Commandments, as part of a display of historic documents
  • Require a woman considering an abortion to have a “face-to-face” meeting with a doctor to discuss medical risks rather than listening to a recorded message on a telephone or watching a video
  • Promote “clean coal technology” to ensure an energy independent America uses Kentucky coal
