Repeal "Reproductive Freedoms"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
 

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#286

Proposed by: Alchemic Queendom

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #286: Reproductive Freedoms (Category: Human Rights; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The World Assembly,

Noting that World Assembly Resolution #286, “Reproductive Freedoms”, creates a totally unrestricted right to obtain an abortion at any stage of a pregnancy,

Realizing that this includes a right to obtain very late term abortions, or abortions after a genetic test, for example for the presence of Down's syndrome,

Furthermore, reiterating its commitment to human equality,

Believing that one of the most important aspects of human equality is the abolition of gender-based discrimination,

Applauding previous World Assembly legislation attempting to address gender-based discrimination, while recognising that this is an unfinished project,

Acknowledging that in many cultures economic and social norms have led to prejudices against female children and to discrimination in favour of male children,

Understanding that a common means of expressing this prejudice is through sex-selective abortion, wherein an abortion is conducted only after a sex test of the foetus has confirmed it to be female,

Also aware of informal folk attitudes that may lead to a pregnancy being ascribed female characteristics even in the absence of definitive medical testing, leading to sex-selective abortion,

Arguing that sex-selective abortion has serious societal consequences, including fuelling further discriminatory attitudes and practices, and contributing to socioeconomic inequality,

Considering there to be a compelling interest in preventing sex-selective abortion,

Disgusted that Resolution #286 prohibits legislation to prevent sex-selective abortion,

Repulsed that this Resolution amounts to a World Assembly mandate for gendercide and does active harm by preventing efforts to address gender imbalances,

Emphasising that this repeal in no way represents an argument against the basic right to obtain an abortion,

Nonetheless, holding the issue of sex-selective abortion sufficiently important to merit reconsideration of the Resolution in question:

World Assembly Resolution #286 is struck out and rendered null and void.

Approvals: 68 (United State of Marsh, Drevace, Akrotirum, Dubnia, Prussia-Austria-Hungary, Northern Union of Lenton, The Completly Oppressive States, Maoist People, Maltropia, Libertas Republia, United Martains, Pino Grand Fenwick, Nightvale Community, Flimxanthia, Guiyang, Santa Sangre, The United Federation of Galaxies, Benaras, Neoconstantius, Fandomia, Aawia, Jamanland, Voga, Jnania, Bad-Assistan, Nawala, At Sea, The North Polish Union, Confederacy of the American South, Hume Nation, Canovia, Christian Democrats, Swabatobia, Vanor-Al-Habarj, Shemiki, Fetch Priory, Jimmy Hart, Sparkdottir, Tir Tiandre, Ghant, Caltarania, Urlandal, Aedruvia, Tatooene, The Kingdom of Ancaria, Belliger, Kuyklovenia, Northern Thermonia, The Devourers of Souls, The Godfather State, Liberonscien, Sorvalia, Holy Trek, Texan Nationalists, Marquette of Pacific, Tobys Great Britain, Urcea, Maynardian Diplomatic Mission to the WA, Tecrid, NewTexas, The Derrak Quadrant, Christian Isles, Eastern Equestria, Frostevilla, Hundred Acre Woods, The Eternal Kawaii, North America and Great Britain, Oilean Sneachta)

Protecting Migratory Animals

A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.
 

Category: Environmental

Industry Affected: All Businesses

Proposed by: Mosktopia

Description: The General Assembly:

Aware that species diversity is an irreplaceable part of our natural world, and that nations are constantly deriving new medical, scientific, recreational, social and economic uses from our world's biodiversity;

Recognizing that all nations have a duty to protect and conserve the world's biodiversity for future generations;

Noting that conservation of migratory animals requires the concerted efforts of every nation with jurisdiction over any part of the animals' migratory path;

Resolved that nations can and should work together to conserve and protect migratory animal species;

Hereby enacts the following provisions:

1. Notes that, as used in this act, migration refers to the forseeable, seasonal movement of an animal from one area to another on a greater scale than its normal daily activities;

2. Directs each member nation to catalog the migratory animal species that:

  • inhabit the member nation's territory between periods of migration, or

  • pass through the member nation's territory during migration;

3. Mandates that, where a migratory animal species ranges or migrates across international borders, member nations must collaborate with other nations to preserve and protect the animal's habitat and migratory path;

4. Requires member nations to restrain individuals, businesses, and organizations within their jurisdiction from unreasonably degrading the integrity of migratory animal populations living in, or traveling through, the territory of any nation;

5. Urges member nations to exchange research data on migratory animal species with other nations;

6. Clarifies that, notwithstanding any other provision of this act, member nations may take reasonable actions to deter migratory animals from damaging or destroying property, or becoming pests. Furthermore, invasive migratory species are not covered by the protections of this act.
