Abortion is a “wedge issue” in Utah, and rightly so. We live in the most conservative state in the union and have the highest concentration of LDS members. The LDS Church is very clear on the matter:
Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints must not submit to, perform, encourage, pay for, or arrange for an abortion. Church members who encourage an abortion in any way may be subject to Church discipline.
This is a divisive issue even among libertarians. On the one hand, we see it as a matter of personal liberty. What business does the state have with what a woman does with her body? On the other hand, some see the right to life as one of the natural rights that government ought to protect on behalf of those who cannot protect themselves.
Utah Liberty Alliance seeks to bring about a free society through journalism and activism, starting right here at home.
Repeal Stupid Laws
Does your city have stupid laws on the books? It is amazing how sacred people consider the laws of the State to be until they consider the law absurd. You can help delegitimize the State by contacting us with information about the stupid laws in your city. We'll contact elected officials to urge them to repeal.
