LYNCHBURG, VA (WAVE) - Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is being accused of plagiarizing from Wikipedia.

Paul gave a speech Monday while campaigning at Virginia's Liberty University on behalf of that state's republican gubernatorial nominee. The speech drew a parallel between abortion rights and the use of genetics to eliminate certain types of people from society.

Parts of the speech were virtually identical to part of a Wikipedia summary of the 1997 science fiction movie ‘Gattaca."
