A real prince. I totally love the conviction of this guy:
Hereditary Prince Alois of Liechtenstein has threatened to step down from his royal duties if a citizen-led initiative to limit his vetoing power proves successful. The citizens’ initiative gained momentum last year when the 43 year-old prince threatened to veto the results of a referendum should the majority opt to legalize abortion in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy and in cases of fetal deformity.
The power of one. It might not change anything but he’d go down in history as having stepped down over this issue. I always wondered what would happen if, for example, then Governor General Michaelle Jean had stepped down rather than receive Henry Morgentaler into the Order of Canada. Would have been a nice statement, anyway.by
