What Rothbard is calling liberty in this rationale for abortion

is in truth mere lawlessness. This is the Achilles heel of the libertarian philosophy when it is divorced from the law of human nature. Libertarianism as taught by Dr. Paul is lawful and can be nothing else without self destruction.

If one departs from the law of human nature, not perceiving the higher consciousness to which we are called, one simply sets oneself up as an autonomous god with an absolute prerogative to determine right and wrong, good and evil. In other words one succumbs to the lie of the serpent mind and sinks into delusion, deception and self deception.

It may be that Rothbard merely created an hypothesis in order to stimulate debate but if so in this case it is a dangerous experiment given his reputation in the liberty community. It could lead many into the path of lawlessness that is so prevalent among libertarians and for which they are often derided by the general community.

Dr. Paul has rightly pointed out that one cannot have any rights unless one has all rights. Rights like the Law are a seamless robe. Break one and the entire structure falls. Without a right to life one loses all other rights.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
