Central People's Government and Party issue joint statement condemning US Supreme Court; financial support pledged to citizens who must travel for abortions
The Central People's Government of the New Richmond Republic - the collective term for the offices and organs which constitute the NRR's national government - has released a joint statement with the Blair Mountain League regarding the enduring assault on reproductive rights and bodily autonomy in the United States, in particular the recently leaked draft opinion of the US Supreme Court which would overturn Roe v. Wade. The entire statement is reprinted in its entirety below.
The events which have unfolded in the United States over the past week have shocked and saddened the New Richmonder people. The leaked US Supreme Court draft opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade is an unfortunate and painful reminder of many things for us; that American "democracy" is farcical (this decision having been made by an unelected panel of elderly bureaucrats of whom only one-third have wombs), that the paradoxical so-called morality of the capitalists would forbid us from terminating a pregnancy only to force our children to suffer a miserable existence with dwindling access to food and healthcare, and that the material reality of the New Richmond Republic as a micronation limits what we can do to remedy this sorrowful turn of events.
