Why Do Small-Government Conservatives Want To Regulate Abortion?

Conservatives (and also libertarians) are known for their beliefs in deregulation and small government. Meaning the government should stay away from the privacy of its citizens concerning issues like starting a business, marriage, and owning firearms. We conservatives, for the most part, believe that this country was founded on biblical values and a system that gives more power to the people and not the government.


Our Constitutional Right

We are strong believers in the 10th Amendment:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The constitution is a beautiful thing. A set of rules and laws that work almost perfectly for a nation like this (I say almost because no system or document is perfect). Whatever power not listed in the constitution would be given to the states to decide. That’s why some states have the lotto and some don’t. Why some taxes are higher or lower in certain states compared to others and etc. Because those issues are not mentioned in the constitution.

Equality Regarding Rights, Not Outcomes


Is Abortion Okay?

So if abortion is never mentioned in the constitution, why do conservatives want abortion to be illegal on the federal level? Completely contradictory to their stance on the 10th amendment. Is it because they want to be jerks and regulate what a woman can do with their body? For many conservatives and pro-life advocates, it is a moral issue.

On the federal level, stealing is illegal. So is murder, arson, rape, burglary, theft etc. Those are all immoral acts. So we must understand, that our lives begin at conception when we were in our mothers’ womb. That’s where all humans began their life no matter what those feminists will try to tell you. Now if our life begins at conception then all abortions would be considered murder.

When you have to take away the life of a precious unborn human baby because it’s “my body, my choice” that is not only ignorance but also the highest degree of immorality. You can make as many excuses as you’d like but at the end of the day it is still death to a child.

Murder is not and never should be a “right”. Murder is murder. End of story.
