Googling up baby

Being Christian and a libertarian isn't always easy. Abortion, for example, really makes me uneasy. I am vehemently opposed to it, but don't think we should use the coercive power of the state over individuals to ban abortions. If I were ever elected to office, I would relax adoption laws, promote safe sex, and speak out for the lives of the unborn. There's a lot that could be done in these areas to decrease the number of abortions without resorting to an outright ban.

Speaking of which, Christian views on abortion shouldn't be banned or shunned. Until recently, Google had apparently banned Christian ads related to abortion. Thankfully for the sake of the free marketplace of ideas, Google has reversed that policy. Now it's up to the individual to decide.
