    Someone asked about Barr's position on Sanctity of Life issues. I couldn't find anything on his website http://www.bobbarr2008.com/home/skip/?s=0618

    Is this being missed or is he having to jettison his pro-life stance (at least vocally) to be the libertarian nominee?

    I don't think he as jettisoned it, but it is simply not talking about it because his position is somewhat at odds with the LP platform:

    1.4 Abortion
    Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.

    Amazing! So people can have good faith views on the slaughter of children.
