Liechtenstein’s pro-life prince wins key vote

Catholic World News - July 03, 2012

Prince Alois of Liechtenstein won a solid electoral victory when 65% of the little country’s voters opposed a referendum that would have ended his legislative veto power. Only 15% of Lichtenstein’s people voted in favor of the measure.

In September 2011, in advance of a nationwide vote on decriminalization of abortion, Prince Alois announced that if the voters passed the measure, he would use his authority to veto it. In fact, the voters turned down the bid to legalize abortion, by a narrow margin. Proponents of abortion then organized the subsequent referendum to eliminate the royal veto power, which was defeated.
