Gary Johnson opposes health insurance companies having to fund abortions, which I personally care…

Abortion is an issue that has deeply split the libertarian base precisely because it raises a lot of thorny issues. Libertarianism is about maximizing freedom of people as long as they do not infringe on the freedoms of another person. Is a fetus considered a person? This is a very complicated subject, and even a lot of pro-choice supporters are squeamish around things like late-term and partial-birth abortions.

No less a (controversial) feminist icon than Camille Paglia has stated that, despite her “pro-abortion stance”, she begrudgingly admits that the pro-lifers have the moral high ground on this particular subject. Abortion is really complicated, and I don’t think it should be surprising or morally repugnant when certain private sector actors bristle at having to provide or finance abortions by dint of law.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
