Do you really, honestly believe that people who are pro-life are only obsessed with controlling women and their bodies?

Well, since the obsession with keeping a fetus alive in utero with such an extreme/absolutist fashion requires controlling a woman's body, the obvious answer is yes.

If A is keeping a fetus alive, and B is controlling a woman by preventing her from choosing whether or not to terminate her own pregnancy, you can't have A without B barring the fetus being viable, so therefore you can't share Rand Paul's obsession with A (pro-life) without having an obsession with B (controlling women) as well. At the moment there's no magic womb for a non-viable fetus to develop, you MUST prevent a woman from exercising control over her own body in deciding whether or not to continue her pregnancy to accomplish the same prevention of abortion. There's no way around it, hopefully that bottomless pit of logic flaw gets fixed.
