It's not necessary to "strengthen the state" to provide protection to the unborn. The ability of the state to protect the rights of citizens is already there. What we're faced with is putting unborn children under this protection.
The purpose of government is to defend the equal rights of all persons, with special care to the defenseless. The writer of this article is absolutely right that abolishing government would only frustrate this and leave the weak unprotected--which would, in turn, endanger us all by creating a society of the survival of the fittest.
What we've done in our society is corrupt government--turning it from a protecting agent to an oppressive one. Certainly we don't want to see an expansion of this power; the key to protecting the unborn is to reverse the government's power back to a focus on the equal protection of rights.

What's a right?
All of the problems of our government are scrictly the responsibility of the citizens as we have total control in the long run as to what happens. big government can only be made, and only be abused with our consent.
