[B**** New WA Resolution Notification *****

There is currently a new Security Council Resolution at vote. When expressing your opinion, please note which Resolution it is for. And remember Texans, your individual vote does count!

The new Resolution is called:
"Liberate The Conservative Christians
A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region.

Category: Liberation Nominee (region): The conservative christians Proposed by: Tinhampton

THE SECURITY COUNCIL:

COGNIZANT that The Zealasian Subject of Aspies is a"...

<see the Security Council for full text and to vote>

Synopsis: The Security Council wishes to Liberate the region of The Conservative Christians from invaders. You know the drill. Four Stars. NewTexas will go on record as FOR on this Resolution. This is only the opinion of NewTexas. We look forward to other Texans' opinions and comments on this Resolution. If good arguments to the contrary are made, we will reconsider our position.

The Texas response was flat on the last SC vote -- Condemn Democratic Empire Of Romania -- which was defeated after gaining only 15.3% of the vote. As a reminder, all we are looking for is a simple 10% of Texans to say one way or another. We are a force for change in the WA. Every vote counts! There were 3 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 0 FOR and 3 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were unanimous! Yay!

If you would like to take part in shaping the world you live in, please vote. Voting is a right and a privilege, please consider using it. And, if you are not a member of the World Assembly, we strongly encourage you to join.

All Texas WA Member nations please vote. Please make your Texan opinions known in Texas by 11:00 PM Monday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00 PM Texas Time on Tuesday the 22nd. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 3719 Votes AGAINST: 1156

No. Those are my words. Mike Rowe is far more eloquent than that.

Issues Test Bed wrote:My view is that life is continuous.

However, if we must chose a point where a fetus turns into a baby, I'm going to have to say that point is when the fetus can be reasonably expected to survive outside the womb with the technology available . Until that point, the fetus does not qualify as independent life anymore than one's leg does.

However, once the point of viability passes, that baby has as much right to live as anyone else.

Full disclosure: My resume includes flying premature infants and other newborns in critical condition to a neonatal intensive care unit at a children's hospital. Those experiences will forever shade my view on the matter of late term abortion.

This is exactly how I feel. When the child could survive on its on, it is truly alive. Otherwise it should be up for abortion. Keep in mind I am not an advocate of abortion and wish it wasn't legal, but on the flip side I think people should have the choice (all about the freedoms and smaller government). In my perfect world abortions would be limited to incest, rape, and when the health/safety of baby or mother is in question.

Woo, 9th in today's census!

A great big Howdy! to all of you in the Bestest Region in NationStates! Perhaps you remember your friends in Antarctic Oasis? Well, I just wanted to stop by real quick to let you know it's our region's 13th birthday this week. We'll be accepting well-wishes (and of course gifts!) from all our friends across the NS-verse! If you can't get a gift, don't worry, cold hard cash is also acceptable. As are all major credit cards.

I also have some reading material on the holiday, if you guys get bored.

Thanks for being our friends all these years!
