Management of State Resources

It's amazing how many self-proclaimed "libertarians" support the Roe v. Wade decision, which unconstitutionally federalized state authority to regulate the murder of pre-born human beings. William Norman Grigg notes,

Although it was swaddled in the language of individual empowerment, the Roe decision was a dramatic victory for collectivism: It enshrined, in what our rulers are pleased to call the “law,” the assumption that a human individual is a “person” only when that status is conferred by the government.
