6. What I mean is this...
Even libertarians are split on the abortion issue. On one hand (to them, not me), the government should let the woman decide. On the other hand, if they truly believe it's a life, they think it deserves protection. And even the most hard-core anti-government nut supports laws against the taking of an innocent life.

Just to re-clarify, these are not my views in the least. I have a rather strange view-point (I'm anti-Roe vs. Wade, yet pro-choice). I think if you are going to say a person can do what they want with their own body (right to privacy, as in Roe vs. Wade), then you have to at least be consistent. Why can't I use steroids? It's my body. Why can't I smoke? Why can't I sell a lung? The pukes aren't consistent on this, but hey, neither are we mostly either.

The Texas governor is an idiot. Forced HPV vaccination is insane.
