Below are some of the reasons that certain Catholics in Iowa are citing in their support of Ron Paul:
“Dr. Paul’s record on the sanctity of life cannot be questioned. I appreciate that he offers pro-life advocates new ways of thinking on this important issue, such as through affirming states’ rights,” continued Mr. DeVries. Mr. DeVries serves as Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus Council 10282 out of All Saints Catholic Church in Des Moines. He is also a Ron Paul campaign co-chairman for Iowa’s 3rd congressional district.
Story County GOP Chairman Cory Adams, who endorsed Ron Paul for the Republican nomination earlier in the week, also serves on the “Catholics for Ron Paul” national advisory board.
“I support Ron Paul because of his strong pro-life stance. He believes that life begins at conception and has pledged to veto any budget that funds Planned Parenthood or any other abortion services. His views on life and abortion both line up completely with the teachings and positions of the Catholic Church,” said Mr. Adams.
“Ron Paul has committed to vetoing any spending bill that funds Planned Parenthood, facilities that perform abortion or family planning schemes. This is exactly what Catholics expect from our next president. America needs Ron Paul in the White House,” said A.J. Spiker, a “Catholics for Ron Paul” national advisory board member, a Republican Party of Iowa Central Committee member, and Vice Chairman of the Ron Paul presidential campaign in Iowa.
