    One of my issues with Libertarians that seek to be holier than thou. If one views that the fetus is actually legitimately a human child and thus covered by all the standards rights an individual has, its perfectly within libertarian philosophy to prohibit abortions on that basis. Would a Libertarian suggest that someone who states that it is okay for the Police to interject if a Parent is attempting to kill their 3 month old isn't a libertarian? If no, then suggesting someone who believes as I just stated isn't a libertarian would be entirely hypocritical and narrow minded.

    Most who oppose the Tea Party make the association that white=racist. I have no problem with it being a majority white group. We live in a majority white country, is America racist over that? I believe demographics do not make a group racist, but actions do.
    Really? You are going to stick with that line of reasoning? Okey dokes.

    Difficult question. However, in a perfectly libertarian sense it comes down to individual rights. Do I have a right based on my personal beliefs to infringe on another person's right to do what they will with their body, in order to save the life of an unborn fetus simply because I believe it should be saved? At what point will I not infringe on other people's rights simply because I have personal beliefs that differ from them?

    Thank you. Now if only Rev could understand something so simple and not get uber defensive about it.

    When it becomes a citizen. As per our Constitution, that is when it is born. If you want it earlier than that, then you should probably amend the Constitution to grant citizenship sooner.

    Why would it be ok to infringe upon someone's right to murder another person? Murder is wrong, it robs someone of their personal liberty. Why would it also be wrong for a libertarian to believe that unborn life possesses liberty and that it would also be wrong to kill it? Someone may have the personal believe that murder is ok, but I don't know any libertarian that would argue that murder is right and that we shouldn't infringe upon someone's personal decision to murder another person. In essence, it's wrong to rob someone of personal liberty and people shouldn't have the legal choice to do so. Believing that abortion is unjust murder of an unborn child would fall under keeping murder illegal because it robs someone of personal liberty.
