It's not they thought he was too libertarian

But it was practically a right and left wing of the Libertarian Party with the key argument being abortion. Dr. Paul (being Pro-Life) argued that the fetus is a living being,and because of that, it is afforded the same inalienable rights as everyone else. Pretty much the same viewpoint that he has now.
