In general, the sentiment on reason.com towards Dobbs seems to be mostly negative, a little surprising given that Libertarians have always been somewhat divided on abortion.
Nick Gillespie did note in one article that many of his own colleagues felt differently about it.

I think the most interesting article for me personally was Damon Root's, which makes a case that abortion should actually be protected under the 9th amendment (the "catch all" amendment: "just because we didn't enumerate a right, doesn't mean the government can infringe on it").
The difficulty with unenumerated rights is it's very hard to establish exactly what they are. And, indeed, in this case you could certainly argue for the fetus' rights vs the mother's.

Liberdon

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
