    Then both are wrong...there's nothing in Libertarian ideology that suggests a Libertarian can not be pro-life.

    Of course not. It's silly to think that Libertarian couldn't be pro-life or pro-choice.

    I love how people try to lock others into an ideological box and tell them what they can and cannot think or feel.

    Libertarianism isn't anarchy.

    If they believe that abortion = murder, then they can support the ideal of maximum individual freedom and be against what they consider murder (which takes away freedom, in a sense).

    Edit: Of course, the position that forcing a woman to carry a child to term violates HER individual freedom also holds weight.

    So.....

    Yes, if they view all abortion as homicide.
