Moving to co-sponsor this bill. Senators have 24 hours to object.

Abortion is a divisive issue and a national solution will upset many people so the regions should be able to decide the matter. I would also like to invite Governor LT onto the floor to speak on behalf of the amendment as a former Senator under the previous Constitution.

I agree with the Senator regarding this sentiment. It is very important that each region have the key ability to decide on the legality of abortion practice. As it stands, if abortion were nationalized, despite my previous support for that, each President could rescind or extend abortion protections. Thus, this bill puts more power into the hands of regions which I now fully support.

Abstain. Abortion policy is more or less left to the regions already and has been so for some time, Iím not sure what the practical purpose of this amendment would be.

Abstain. Abortion policy is more or less left to the regions already and has been so for some time, I’m not sure what the practical purpose of this amendment would be.

I guess maybe this prevents the Federal Government from funding abortions via doofcare? Also of course it prevents some future ultra left or ultra right wing administration + senate from just establishing either abortion on demand or a complete abortion ban by fiat.

I wouldn't be opposed to this amendment if I was in the Senate, but I don't think we have to necessarily write this down unless someone starts running on a platform of going after the Southern and Lincoln restrictions.

Even AtlasCare only covers abortions insofar as the region allows or wants it to.

After what a harrowing year this has been on old social issues, I'd maintain existing federal abortion policy as I would also on gun policy, which allows regions to enact restrictions for the most part. That assumes Truman's nullification doctrine is still in effect, at least, which is unclear.
