The problem with libertarian philosophy on abortion being a “states rights” issue (or some say “the government should not have any role in whether a woman has an abortion”) is that it surrenders to the left.

It fails to understand that God never intended the government to separate itself from His moral law (i.e., “Thou shalt not murder”)

He ordained government to uphold it.

Sanctity of life, therefore, is not a right that states should determine, but is an unalienable right that the Constitution authorizes the Federal Government to protect.

In other words, the personal right to life and liberty is guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States!

Every unborn child has a personal Right to Life.

I respectfully submit to you that libertarian doctrine, on the issue of abortion being a matter of States rights is the same one used by the Democrat south to justify slavery.

Democrats said that the slaves were “property” and, hence, whether to free them or allow them “life and liberty” should be left to the States.

They were wrong. Slaves were not property, but human beings. Likewise, unborn children are not property. They too are human beings.

In the final analysis, the argument that the Right to Life is a “States Rights” issue is nothing short of moral surrender.
