When I hear the unborn condemned I am going to speak up. Education is in order. If some "libertarians" don't like it then they can be quiet as well.
Proverbs 11:11 If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; 12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?
IMO, as a Baptist Preacher's Wife, the least I can do is say something and have some bumper stickers on my car and support a crisis preganancy center.
You said: "Don't bother arguing with the abortion monsters here, just side with them about liberty as best we can and act to end abortion"
I am stunned that you would advocate shutting up here on this Liberty forum. Ron Paul, the Champion of Liberty, said "Unless we understand…we must protect life, we cannot protect liberty."
You will never protect liberty if you do not protect life. Do you not know the new argument is Post-birth abortion because some eggheads somewhere are determining that newborns are not actual functioning human beings. Any life not worth protecting will soon be yours. The abortion issue is an issue because it is meant to be an issue because it is another slippery slope whereby life and individualism are snuffed out, thus the snuffing of Liberty.
I will not be silenced in the face of 50 MILLION slaughtered human lives on American soil without trial or representation. In addition to the Proverbs Scripture it might also be helpful to go to the Declaration of Independence:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”
How it is OK to extinguish the lives of 50 Million lives on American soil without their consent and preempt their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and fail to forbear to speak out in the face of opposition in order to perhaps deliver some?
