This rule is cited as Rule 3E, and is considered a severe offense. Unlawful conduct (including the support thereof) is also a violation of Rule 7C.

EXCEPTIONS & PROVISIONS:

Abortion: Support of abortion is not banned under this rule. An exemption is made for this specific issue due to the controversial, contentious, and widely-debated context. We want to foster open-debate as much as possible, and this includes topics such as abortion. However, condoning infanticide, sex-selective abortions, eugenics, abortion "rituals", forced abortions, or partial-birth abortions is indeed banned under this rule.

Death Penalty: Some may consider the death penalty to be a form of murder. However, similar to the issue of abortion, we do not ban people based on their position on this topic due to its contentious and widely-debated nature.
