Given its general “live and let live” nature, the Libertarian political platform declares abortion a personal choice that should not be interfered with by government. Yes, I know, it’s both ironic and contradictory, given that abortion ends a life.
But basically, that’s the Libertarian approach to everything – economic freedom, social issues, and foreign policy: don’t intervene in anything unless it can be plainly seen as absolutely necessary. And for some reason, the Libertarian Party platform does not find it necessary to protect the liberty of gestating life.
But what if there actually is an “absolutely necessary” case for being Pro-Life? Would it be powerful enough to turn Libertarians into socially conservative voters?
I sure hope so – because protecting the rights of unborn children is absolutely necessary for the survival of Liberty in America.
