The right to life is the fundamental human right. The human being who is not allowed to live cannot exercise any other purported human right, including those of individual liberty. Therefore, one's political orientation must concern the right to life before all other causes, including the defense of liberty.

This is the fundamental flaw of libertarianism: The rights of others trump the rights that the libertarian affords to himself. The human right of the unborn child to be born and build trumps the mother's libertarian "right" to abort the child. The human right of each person to be raised by a father and mother trumps the libertarian "right" to bring children into single-parent or same-sex-parent households.
