Established on June 1, 2011, Right to Life is the premier region for the pro-life movement on NationStates. Right to Life is a community of nations that recognizes and promotes defense of the unalienable rights of the unborn. The nations of the region, believing in the equal dignity of prenatal life, oppose induced abortion in all or most cases. Members of Right to Life come from a wide spectrum of national, political, and religious (and nonreligious) backgrounds. Anybody pro-life is welcome in the region.
Regional law permits individual region members to tolerate abortion access in certain rare cases: maternal life, maternal health, rape, incest, and serious fetal abnormalities. Together, these cases constitute about one-tenth of abortion procedures. Nine in ten abortions are performed for social or economic reasons. In the world, there are more than 40 million abortions per year. On other issues of human life, such as capital punishment and assisted suicide, region members are free to form and adhere to their own personal opinions.
