This region will open on June 1.
Welcome. Because the region just opened on Wednesday, we're still trying to set up the government. I've appointed Mike the progressive the head of government until an election can be held later this month, but he currently doesn't have any endorsements.
Does anyone have any ideas for a permanent constitution? (A link to the provisional constitution is on the World Factbook Entry.)
whats so bad about euthanasia anyway??
Before a debate on euthanasia begins, let me just point out that this region is anti-abortion. On all other issues, including life issues, the region as a whole is neutral; though, individual nations, including members of the government, may hold and advocate positions on non-abortion issues.
Personally, I oppose euthanasia because I do not believe doctors should be in the business of killing people. I believe euthanasia is unethical and immoral. I do not think that most people who request euthanasia are in a clear state of mind; therefore, any request for death should be considered invalid.
(Let me just restate that you can be both pro-euthanasia and welcome in this region.)
ok good. also thanks for the welcome :)
i support euthanasia because i think that a person should have the right to die if they want to provided that they are checked over by a psychologist or whatever to check that they are able to make informed consent to the decision. or maybe a person with a disaese like alzhimmers could sign something syaing that when there condition is advanced enough they wouldnt like to live no more
A "right" to die makes little, or no sense. Saying that there is a right, but it is only applicable when you have been "checked over" is a contradiction of terms. Either you have a Natural Right, it is your right no matter what the circumstances, or you don't. There's no "I have a right to this... Sometimes." It simply is impossible.
That said, I support euthanasia. While I feel, strongly, that any action that is not coercive should be legal... I find that such an argument is not always the most compelling, which is why I usually see a utilitarian side to the position. If anyone, anywhere, wants to die; there's a certain wastefulness in using our resources on those individuals when there are those who are desperate to live, but may not because of the realities of life. Namely, we have infinite needs and finite resources. It makes little sense to tell a person that they're dying, that they cannot hurry up the process but that they can take ever more resources to titillate our sense of self-righteousness. 'Every life is equal' may sound good in a traffic jam, but when it comes down to the nitty-gritty; they're not. I do not, and probably will never, support an innate, macabre ideal in which I place far more value on my decisions over individuals' lives than I do for their own.
Hello friends of Right to Life! My name is Prelature Pope Edward I from Vatican II and the rest of the Virtual Roman Catholic Church. I'm here to celebrate the opening of the embassy between our two regions. Sorry it took me a little while to get here, but I had a couple busy days in RL.
How is everyone?
Things have been the most lively in the VRCC as I've seen it in a very, very long time. We are having a discussion on the relationship between the faiths which has been quite interesting. It is nice to see a region with the name of one of the most important things to fight for.
Thank you for your hospitality on my visit. I look forward to working together in the future! God bless each and every one of you.
How do you like the game? Are you considering joining the World Assembly?
...am I going to have to be the only active pro-lifer in NSG?
PRO LIFE! Just like me!
NSG is the land where those who appeal to emotions accuse others of the same deed. I've long given up on prolonged debating in NSG, even on economic or social policy.
NSG is a waste of time, I agree. It's basically people screaming at each other. *sigh*
Most of the forum is basically people screaming at each other.
I must withdraw. Inactivity in my region has taken its toll and I am desperately needed there. I apologize.
Due to the early departure of Mike the progressive, Bizantinea, the region's only World Assembly member, has been appointed premier. I encourage all residents of Right to Life to join the World Assembly to endorse Bizantinea. (Endorsing the premier is mandatory.)
Because there is only one World Assembly member in the region, the election has been delayed until further notice. A constitutional convention will not be held until after a premiership election occurs. I'll try to recruit more nations to the region this week.
Hello everyone I am now the current premier I would like to ask for your endorsement as well as for members to join our forum
Thank you for your consideration
