Life v Anti-Life

1972 LP platform plank“We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days.” (link) Roe was decided 16 days after our electoral vote was counted.
“If he [Reagan] doesn’t respect that fundamental a right, he cannot be a defender of any kind of rights.” Ayn Rand, 1976.

As Al Smith used to say in the teeth of controversy: “Let’s look at the record.” The LP formed as The Pill turned ten. Women activists not seen in droves since 1932 were everywhere. A Jewish Physician was for the second time arrested by a Christian Gestapo–this time for helping Canadian women (as individuals not protected by any 4th, 9th, 13th or 14th Amendments) Just Say No to forced reproduction.(link) Death in Childbed was the Victorian-Comstockist era entry in coroners’ records for pregnant women killed by voluntary + coerced childbirth. In California that meant 21 women in 100,000 childbirths when the LP formed. The trendline shows a sharp and consistent decrease as forced labor in childbirth was repealed. Fewer women died.

The Libertarian party organized against coercion and for freedom and individual rights. That successful plank was followed by a 15-year falling trend for lady deaths until the Biden-Bush-Reagan prohibitionist and pronatalist coercive frenzy kicked into the record. Starting in 1980 infiltrators hacked at the platform to remove LP defense of women’s individual rights from the platform. The graph above shows how California’s pregnant women fared as coercive mysticism tightened its grip on the violence of law. More women died in childbirth as the LP was steered away from women’s rights and toward anarcho-pederasty.(link)

All I did was search for “deaths in childbirth” graphs. This turned out to be difficult, as though such data were taboo or proscribed. I finally found the above. Armed with the image and exact title of the vertical axis I leave it to the reader to try to find that article. (hint: Lady Scientist) You might find this (link), or this (link) inadvertently showing how American women suffered increasing wholesale death after the Reagan, Holy War Bush and G Waffen Bush faith-based subsidies for violent prohibitionist mystical fanaticism became entrenched. The Obama Administration adopted the same cowardly waffling as the compromised Libertarian Party, and the outcome is plain to see–if you can find the articles. (link)

The mystics, rent-seekers and politicians hoping to gain from the re-enslavement of women–ALL of them this time around–beat their hairy chests and bellow “Pro-LIFE” at skeptics, miscreants and libertarians. The data, with no input from Ayn Rand or yours truly, shows the exact opposite! These ignorant and superstitious dupes sow death by coercion. Let’s reset the LP back to its original platform.

Good Reading: The Darkening Age is the largely unknown story of how a militant religion deliberately attacked and suppressed the teachings of the Classical world, ushering in centuries of unquestioning adherence to ‘one true faith’. The narration by Lalla Ward is the best voice talent delivery this professional interpreter has ever heard. (link)

I have another, earlier battery review up as well… (link)

I am going to recommend The Scramble for China once I finish it. The author writes well but MISSES a key event triggering the Panic of 1837, which had a LOT do do with Britain attacking China and way less to do with Jackson not liking the central bank. Ya can’t have everything; where would you put it?


Get the complete story in Prohibition and The Crash on Amazon Kindle in two languages. After this you’ll be able to explain to economists exactly how fanaticism and loss of freedom wrecked the U.S. economy.
