If I could have had my way in the US elections, I would have seen Congressman Ron Paul elected as President. One of the reasons has to do with his stance on abortion. As a libertarian, he argues that abortion is not congruent with principles of freedom. In this piece, he even argues that the market suffers with legalised abortion and that there is a correlation between the pro-abortion position and the centralisation of governmental power.

As a physician who has delivered over 4,000 babies I am very
disturbed by the continued efforts of those on the left to establish absolute
rights to abortion. However, even more distressing is the notion that taxpayers
should be forced to subsidize life-ending procedures such as abortion and
embryonic stem cell research.
