Came upon the following video report from India which mentions the virus in Brazil and its leader.
It goes without saying that this region has stood lock-step with our friends in Right to Life on combatting the virulently pro-abortion majority in the General Assembly. We have fought for the Pro-Life cause even when other so-called "conservative" regions have sided against the right.
Access to Abortion is now at vote in the General Assembly. I would love to see every last one of our WA members vote against this appalling measure. If you are not in the World Assembly, please join so that we can present a strong number of votes against the resolution. page=ga
Thanks for your attention to this matter.
P.S. I do need you to endorse me as well. My administration will officially take office on the 12th, and we'd like to ensure a prompt and smooth transition.
This isn’t my main nation anymore am I still a citizen or do I have to petition the president to allow me to become a citizen and retake the test

You may see that "Access to Abortion" is up at-vote right now. In short, it requires every nation to fund on-demand abortion procedures across the World Assembly. It also forces nations to define personhood as beginning at birth and pay for contraceptive access, among other things. Obviously, anti-abortion nations will find this outrageous. But I also think that it makes complete sense for pro-choice nations to oppose this as well, for a few reasons:
This resolution punishes poorer nations, who often have the highest abortion rates, by requiring them to directly pay for abortion procedures in their nations. While this arrangement may be beneficial for rich nations, like the United States, it becomes much harder to do when countries don't have the money to make this happen to begin with. And remember -- the consequences for non-compliance are steep: fines and then embargoes. So poorer nations are stuck with two choices -- slide into economic dependence on the World Assembly (which breeds imperialism) or risk facing hefty fines and sanctions.
It is a one-size-fits-few solution to a complicated problem. A lot of nations are understandably wary of solutions that make them financially-dependent on the WA and its regulations -- it diminishes their ability to make sovereign decisions. Where possible, we should seek solutions that empower nations to create sustainable infrastructure to make this happen in the long-term. The resolution's author made a good point when I tried to draft a resolution calling for free college for everyone in the World Assembly. He said that while perhaps that may be a good aim, it's infeasible for poorer nations to make that happen. Instead, he said, we should focus on improving access to primary education everywhere. I agree -- not every nation can meet the mandates of this resolution, so we should focus our time on more fruitful efforts.
Anti-abortion nations just won't comply. And those are the people who we most need to comply -- the ones who aren't protecting abortion rights already. Some will say that these nations will face "fines" and "sanctions," but the WA doesn't possess a genuine sovereignty at all. If pro-life nations don't want to comply, they can just agree not to sanction each other either. Maybe a more moderate resolution could convince them to sign on.
This resolution is undemocratic. It was drafted with the intent of spiting several anti-abortion authors and in order to demonstrate the pro-abortion rights block's "authority" over the World Assembly. In order to get this resolution to vote, it appears that the North Pacific Army (the largest gameplay military out there) propped this up to vote with loads of artificial approvals. Hardly "democratic," even as the author openly campaigns on "the popular will."
We thank the R.C.N. for standing with us in opposing this abhorrent motion which strikes against the dignity of the unborn, unlike other regions who would declare themselves pro-life but then act in a manner which disputes such proclamations, your actions shows your commitment to the defense of the unborn. The relationship between our two regions is one of friendship and camaraderie and we hope to continue to develop these relations in the future.

We're antifascist, which is why we oppose following the fascist example of sending angry mobs to attack the opposition. Antifa is an angry mob that attacks the opposition, therefore they seem to be learning from the fascists and following their example. Something that the fascists learned from men like Clodius.
I'm in. Who's with me?
The nations of the world, here assembled under the banner of human rights and national sovereignty, have reached a breaking point -- tossed around and treated for nothing by the powers that be, they have been told that their voice never mattered to the World Assembly. They were the unheard, the unseen, the masses of peoples and governments standing for the fundamental rights of every human person. Now, they refuse to be silenced; instead, raising their voices up to heaven, they directly and firmly declare that no king, no parliament, and no international body can legislate away the humanity of the preborn. They march on, in the long struggle for justice, aware that in God’s good time, their cause shall be vindicated. In confidence and in truth, they -- the nations of the world who have not yet stooped to shedding the blood of their own children -- will no longer sit idly by and watch the humanity of the preborn be stripped away.
The nations here assembled, in the name of rehumanizing the dehumanized, hereby resolve the following:
They shall refuse to comply with the commands of “Access to Abortion,” should it pass. That is to say, they shall not contribute financially or politically to so-called “WA Choice Plus,” shall not define personhood as beginning at birth, and shall not pay for or directly provide abortion procedures to their citizenry.
They shall refuse to comply with General Assembly Resolution #440, the Administrative Compliance Act, as it relates to abortion. That is to say, they shall not pay any fines to the General Accounting Office as it pertains to abortion, nor shall they impose any sanctions on the other nations of this pact for their non-compliance with “Access to Abortion,” so-called “Reproductive Freedoms,” “On Abortion,” the “World Assembly Justice Accord,” or the “Administrative Compliance Act.”
They shall refuse to comply with General Assembly Resolution #466, the World Assembly Justice Accord, as it relates to abortion. That is to say, they shall not recognise the judicial authority of the World Assembly Judiciary Committee over their jurisdictions as it relates to abortion and the enforcement of abortion-related resolutions.
They shall agree to furnish military defense for any other nation of this pact who is faced with military embargo or invasion on account of their non-compliance with with “Access to Abortion,” so-called “Reproductive Freedoms,” “On Abortion,” the “World Assembly Justice Accord,” or the “Administrative Compliance Act.” An attack or instance of armed aggression against one member shall be construed as an attack against all.
