The Prince is entitled to his opinion and he is entitled to quit.
If the people of Liechtenstein vote to be rid of the Royal Veto and the Royal Family feel that they cannot undertake their duties without that long held power of Veto then they have every right to quit. I don't see why the people would be upset about the Royal Family choosing to quit.
As for the abortion issue - I would think that, in such a small country which performs few abortions, the sensible woman would travel outside to a hospital with much larger facilities and experience. And of course would exercise very sound judgement on using contraceptives in the first place - or are they banned as well??
I think that the Prince should be allowed an opinion on the abortion issue the same as every person is allowed a view on everything.
He is absolutely entitled to his opinions, but he is not entitled to lock up women who've made a decision regarding their reproductive health. No way. Not in 2012.
This was something that he wanted to pass in Liechtenstein, and it goes way beyond expressing his opinion. It crosses a major line and shows no regard for women.
If he wants to quit, that's his right; I just think he sounds like a big baby when he says he'll quit if his power gets reduced. This family has threatened this before, and it was also during a time when someone proposed a law that takes away some of their power. It shows that he doesn't care about the people and is only in it for the power.
But hey...I'm not a Liechtensteiner, and I don't have a vote. If he wants to rule his people with an iron fist, then I guess that's his business
I just think he needs to show some class and have faith in his subjects.
