Three cheers for Liechtenstein!

The people of Liechtenstein have voted against the legalisation of abortion. Pro-abortion campaigners had secured enough signatures for a referendum on whether abortion should be allowed in the first trimester of pregnancy. The head of state, His Serene Highness, Prince Alois (right) said that he would veto the legislation if it were passed. The pro-abortionists criticised the prince, saying that his intervention would mean that people wouldn't bother to vote. In fact, the turnout was 11,006 out of a possible 18,800 voters which is not at all bad. The proposed legalisation of abortion was rejected by a vote of 52.3% - 47.7%.

So congratulations to Prince Alois and to the good people of Liechtenstein for upholding the sanctity of life of the smallest and weakest.

Hmmm. Liechtenstein. Might be a good place to visit...
