To Save America, We Must Abolish the United States




The Christmas Conspiracy!
Federal Issues

Although the federal judiciary makes abortion legal, many people who are "pro-life" resist abolishing the federal government because they see this as aiding the "pro-choice" forces. They believe "the government" is necessary to prevent abortions by threatening violence against those who procure or deliver them.

Abolishing the institutionalization of violence which we call "the government" is obviously a very "pro-choice" position. But The Christmas Conspiracy! is pro-life. This page explains the manufactured conflict between "pro-life" and "pro-choice."

The Christmas Conspiracy! is "Pro-Life"
  • There is something tragically wrong when a nation's mothers kill their own babies a million times a year; four thousand babies are killed every day in America.
  • Polls indicate Americans oppose 90% of all abortions which take place.
  • It is never necessary to intentionally kill a baby in order to save the life of a mother. Never.
  • Many pro-abortionists say that abortion should be "safe, legal, and rare." Why should the exercise of a "constitutional right" be "rare?" This is like a government censor saying freedom of the press should be "rare," or a pro-lynching KKK member saying trials by jury should be "rare." Abortions should be rare because they are murder.
The Christmas Conspiracy! is "Pro-Choice"
  • Government force -- fines, imprisonment, or execution -- is not the solution to abortion.
  • If a pregnant woman is pressured to get an abortion by her abusive so-called "boyfriend," by her status-conscious parents, and by a greedy abortionist, she should not then be locked up in prison with a carjacker and a prostitute.
  • The government says it is "unconstitutional" to teach students that human beings are created in the image of God, and that God says not to kill them. Threatening such mal-educated students with jail will not cause them to respect life.
  • Here's how to stop abortion without raising taxes to support an army of anti-abortion "jackbooted thugs."

The Libertarian Case Against Abortion

To explain and defend our case, LFL argues that:

  1. Human offspring are human beings, persons from fertilization.
  2. Abortion is homicide -- the killing of one person by another.
  3. There is never a right to kill an innocent person. Prenatally, we are all innocent persons.
  4. A prenatal child has the right to be in the mother's body. Parents have no right to evict their children from the crib or from the womb and let them die. Instead both parents, the father as well as the mother, owe them support and protection from harm.
  5. No government, nor any individual, has a just power to legally depersonify any one of us, born or preborn.
  6. The proper purpose of the law is to side with the innocent, not against them.

For details, please read LFL's literature.

"Her Body"

Proponents of abortion say "it's my body."
-- the body of a genetically distinct individual -- begins at conception. A mother has no more of a right to kill the life that's nursing  in "her body" than she does to kill a life that's nursing  on "her body."

Libertarian Perspectives:

"Preserving the life of the mother"

Abortion is never necessary to "preserve the life of the mother."

If a pregnancy is not developing normally and the mother's life is in imminent danger, then the baby's life is also in danger; if the mother dies, so will the baby. If the baby must be removed from its present location to save the mother's life, the baby can be re-placed somewhere where growth can continue, if not in the mother, then in an incubator. Attempting to preserve the baby's life at this point will not endanger any mother. Deliberately killing the baby is never necessary. Every attempt should be made to preserve the life of the baby. The death of an unborn baby should always be a tragic and unfortunate consequence of underdeveloped medical technology, never an intentional choice.  [return]
