I'm a Libertarian, which makes me more a conservative than a progressive.  Many right-wingers deny abortion rights no matter what and I disagree that fetuses have rights from day one.   I disagree with left-wingers that mothers have abortion rights through full-term.  So I find myself agreeing with progressives more than conservatives on this matter.

why do I hold this set of views?  I was influenced by Milton Friedman's writings during my formative intellectual years and I find Libertarian views comfortable as I age.
