At the Ron Paul Festival, I gave a short lecture on abortion. Moving past the pro-life versus pro-choice issue, I offered the libertarian position of evictionism, which provides the best compromise on this issue. In a nutshell, the argument for evictionism is as follows:

1. The unborn fetus is trespassing into the womb of the woman.
2. The rights of all fetuses are equal.
3. Therefore, the only right choice would be evicting the fetus. Killing it would be wrong.

Half way in to the video, I explain the practical aspects of evictionism as the technology of the health industry becomes more capable of saving more fetuses at earlier trimesters. Toward the later quarter of the video, I handle objections to evictionism.
