One could say that the libertarian position, in general, is an overall pro-life statement. The term that being “Pro-Life” in America has a very anti-abortion message, and it is wrapped around that message. I take a step or two further and say that it isn’t enough to be Pro-Life in the context of abortion. The issue I take is that since I’m Pro-Life regarding abortion, it would also make sense if I’m Pro-Life regarding being Anti-War. Being truly Pro-Life goes way beyond the issue of abortion. Evangelicals within the United States that are politically active tend to be very anti-abortion. Not saying that being anti-abortion is a small thing but being faithful to the issue of being Pro-Life can’t stop on the abortion issue. So, what other issues are out there that can be thought of as being Pro-Life? Take taxation as a form of being Anti-Life. Taxation is a form of stealing from the individual because the government forces people to give their resources to itself. Government if it has to exist, it can only steal, murder and destroy lives, so in effect being libertarian is an overall philosophy that is geared to the protection of life. Within the movement of Libertarianism, there are some that have different positions that aren’t life oriented. Not saying that I won’t take their form of governance compared to the system that we have right but I try to be as consistent as possible. It is just inconsistent to be a libertarian and be “Pro-Choose” in the matter of abortion. The child receives the Three Rights, not when he/she is born but when the child is conceived. There are medical procedures that one can have done to the unborn child that can survive before they are naturally born in the case of the mother not being able to care the child into labor naturally. In the wealthy countries, there shouldn’t be any reason to abort the child because there are so many parents that are willing to adopt and so many procedures that can keep both the child and mother alive. There has been an “increase” in the deaths of the mothers in labor, but this is how death certificate are made from the early 2000s and before the 2000s. (Ref 1) I won’t explain in detail, but this is why I don’t like statistics because statistics can and in fact, can be manipulated in many different ways. Being Pro-Life is also libertarian, and I take the stance where it isn't just the abortion issue but also the war and taxation issue are just the two other issues that I have pointed out in this article.
