Let us pray for HSH the Hereditary Prince of Leichtenstein
The Catholic Herald and Sunlit Uplands have drawn attention to a new development in the struggle to save Leichtenstein from the curse of abortion. His Serene Highness, Alois, Hereditary Prince and Regent of Leichtenstein is threatened with the removal of his veto. The same fate befell HRH the Grand Duke of Luxembourg in 2009 for his opposition to euthanasia. The Principality was beset by the question of abortion last September, when a referendum to permit it was defeated by the people. At that time, HSE the Hereditary Prince and Regent had promised to veto the result if it had favoured abortion. Since then, elements within and without the Principality have conspired to remove the Prince's power to protect the unborn. The Prince is married to HSH the Princess Sophie, daughter of Prince Max, Duke in Bavaria, who is, by the Jacobite Succession the heiress presumptive to the thrones of England, Scotland, Ireland and France.
