The subject of abortion has received some attention lately, what with laws in New York and Virginia and governors celebrating the furthering of liberty to murder human beings.
It is a curious topic among libertarians, a situation where the question of which human has property rights in the womb – the mother or the unborn child. If it is the unborn child, the mother is inconvenienced for nine-months; if it is the mother, the unborn child is inconvenienced for (usually) not nearly as long…but much more permanently.
I have addressed this as a property rights issue in the past, merely for the sake of argument; the unborn child has the rights to the womb for the natural term of the pregnancy. However, my fundamental view is grounded in the reality that the unborn child is a human being.
