IC: "Given that neither the author nor their supporters actually comply with the target resolution, why do they even need to repeal it? They are already ignoring its existence." OOC: And only UM has ever said anything about actually considering the noncompliance causing things to happen i...

OOC:Me and UM are making plans to campaign thoroughly. Still will plan to swing at least some GCRS. (OOC: Even with a concrete, reliable plan to swing major delegates, you’ll be having a lot of trouble with trying to pass this. There’s also the possibility of an even more pro-choice proposal, and t...

To clarify, if this replacement were to pass, pending the addition of a clause about first trimester abortions, if needed, WA policy on abortion would consist of: ⋅ legalisation of abortion in cases of rape, incest, danger to the life of the mother, and foetal abnormality (On Abortion) &sd...

I should note that this resolution does not necessitate a repeal of On Abortion. In fact, it will work with OA. Thus, abortion would remain legal in cases of rape, incest, danger to life, and foetal abnormality, at the very least. Going further, I would even be fine with, for the sake of compromise...

OOC: RF+OA is the compromise. It's the compromise between those who reasonably want women to have rights, and those who want the anti-choice advocates to be forced to pay for all abortions. Further, compromise is what is negotiated between two sides who cannot, or will not, dictate their will upon ...

There is one reason I might like this -- it would allow GCRs tailored to one aspect of the game. I would love a World Assembly focused GCR.

No offense to those that have posted so far, but this blackballing of Auralia is, at best, a pretext for opposing someone with conservative values and, and worst, evinces a sad tendency among some players here to conflate in-game decision-making with personal morality. Yeah, Auralia tried to self-c...
