The delegates of the Libertarian National Convention this past weekend voted to delete the plank from their platform concerning abortion.
Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.https://www.lp.org/platform/
As the Supreme Court looks set to overturn Roe v. Wade, according to the leaked draft of the opinion of the court, the Libertarians have always been staunch defenders of the women’s right to chose. However, there has been a movement in the party fueled by Ron Paul type Libertarians to move the party more towards the pro-life stance.
The deletion of 1.5 doesn’t necessarily say the party is pro-life, but it doesn’t mean the party is pro-choice. As of this moment the Libertarian Party doesn’t have a stance on abortion.
What do you all think? Should the Libertarian Party be pro-choice or pro-life?
