Rand Paul: We Will Be Judged on Whether We Defended All Life from Conception

by TERRANCE JEFFREY June 12, 2013

In his prepared text for a speech he is delivering today at the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, Sen. Rand Paul (R.-Ky.) said he believes there will be a time when everyone is judged on whether they took a stand in defense of human life from the moment conception.

"We have a great many problems in this country to solve," he said. "But I believe there will come a time when we are all judged on whether or not we took a stand in defense of all life from the moment of conception until our last natural breath."

In the same speech, Paul also explained his own vision for immigration reform, which would require securing the border so that it is certified as secured by both the Border Patrol and an Investigator General and then allowing illegal aliens currently in the United States to get work visas and remain here.

Paul spoke of his Christian faith while explaining his positions on abortion and immigration.

"I'm a Christian, a husband and a father," he said. "I'm faithful to my wife and my family. I try to be good at all those things, though, of course, we all fall short of perfection in our lives. I try to adhere to the tenets of God's word in the New Testament.  I take seriously my oath to defend the Constitution. And I try to fight for truth and my values regardless of the political outcome, regardless of how popular or unpopular they may be.
