    That whole "feels like a woman"

    There is a Shania Twain song about that.

    If a Republican can claim to be a Christian, then a Libertarian can be Pro or Anti pretty much anything... because nothing makes sense anymore.

    People that oppose gay marriage, prefer traditional values, and get angry when Democrats oppose Christian businesses and groups on campuses can be Christians? That's the most surprising thing I've heard all day!

    Re: Can a Libertarian be Pro Life?

    I would say I more closely align with libertarians then any other group and I am pro life. However I completely support the right for others to make their own decision and do not believe that I have the right, nor does the government, to legislate that decision.

    From a personal standpoint - Pro Life

    From a governing standpoint - Pro Choice

    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Libertarians believe in boldly sovereignty and are opposed to treating people like property, so yes Libertarians must by definition be pro-life. A pro-choice Libertarian isn't a Libertarian at all, just a lier and a hypocrite.

    If they believe the unborn is a person, then abortion may be seen to violate the NAP in most cases.

    No, because Liberal is a lean, not a party.

    The labels represent your view on policy, thus there is no such thing as "personally pro life". If you support a choice then you are pro choice regardless of what choice you would make for yourself.
