Repeal "The Landmine Convention"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#40

Proposed by: The Dark Star Republic

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #40: The Landmine Convention (Category: Global Disarmament; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The World Assembly,

Taking note of the passage of WA Resolution #40, "The Landmine Convention",

Troubled that the definition of "landmine" used in this resolution includes mines designed to become non-operational after a certain time has elapsed,

Considering that given these landmines do not necessarily pose significant risks to civilians they should not have been prohibited and that this technical flaw undermines the resolution's claims to concern for civilian casualties,

Suggesting that nations with the technical capacity to comprehensively demine mined areas post-conflict may be capable of deploying landmines in a way that poses little risk to civilians,

Recalling that the WA has several times voted to not ban or to repeal bans on chemical weapons and that denying WA members conventional area denial munitions is therefore inconsistent with general international law,

Further aware that WA member nations have many responsibilities in wartime, for the protection of civilians and prisoners of war, and that non-member nations, who outnumber WA members severalfold and have provoked many international incidents of war, hold no such obligations,

Concerned that the occupation of any WA member nation's territories by non-member nations could result in war crimes over which the WA would have no jurisdiction nor ability to arrest,

Therefore believing that any area denial munitions available to WA member nations should be permitted in the defence of their territory from armed occupation by hostile non-members,

Heartened that repeal of this resolution will not preclude future legislation to continue the demining work of the World Assembly Demining Agency:

Repeals WA Resolution #40, "The Landmine Convention".

Repeal "Reproductive Freedoms"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#286

Proposed by: Omigodtheyclonedkenny

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,

Acknowledging the importance of protecting the individual right to reproductive choice on an international level,

Agreeing that legislation on such a sensitive and controversial subject should affirm essential rights while at the same time providing for a modicum of reasonable restrictions to prevent abuse and assure the safety of all those involved,

Regretting that Resolution #286: Reproductive Freedoms falls short in this regard,

Noting that the resolution, by the author's own admission, compels member states to legalize abortion at any point in a patient's pregnancy, even into the late term,

Contending that Reproductive Freedoms' across-the-board legalization of abortion, with few allowances for nations to regulate the practice, and with little regard for preventing abusive cultural customs such as forced abortions or gender-selective abortions, exposes the irresponsible manner in which the legislation was crafted,

Objecting to the fact that the resolution ignores relevant concerns about reducing the need for abortion, in that it forbids "impediments" to abortion-on-demand, which could include even medical counseling about alternatives to abortion,

Expressing its concern that had the voters known just how radical and extreme the measures of this resolution were, it would not have passed,

Seeking consensus on a more moderate reproductive-rights resolution,

Hereby repeals Resolution #286: Reproductive Freedoms.
