The Libertarian Case for Life

As a libertarian, I agree that opposing abortion is not inherently "un-libertarian", that a case against abortion can be made based on libertarian premises-- though I don't wholly adhere to that view myself I fall more into what is sometimes called the "mushy middle," supporting some legal restrictions such as bans on late-term abortions and parental notification/consent for pregnant minors, but not an absolute ban on all abortions. I can't buy into either the idea that a fetus is a complete human person from the moment of conception, or that it is a piece of disposable trash right up to the moment of birth.

The child 'aggresses' on the mom the whole time.

It is resource stress on the mom's physiology which triggers birth, for just the _first_ piece of evidence that you've overlooked the relevant issues.

At this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), I was invited to participate on a panel called "The Future of the Movement: Winning with Generation X/Y." I had a lot of ideas to discuss, including utilizing new messages to reach this new pro-life generation, recruiting more candidates with a willingness to stand up for what they believe in, developing new technology, and improving grassroots organizing, to name a few.

But, instead of focusing on the panel's extremely important topic, the moderator, Students for Liberty Co-Founder Alexander McCobin, decided to use his time to advance his libertarian ideal of legalizing gay marriage....
