On Vaccination

A resolution to modify universal standards of healthcare.
 

Category: Health

Area of Effect: Healthcare

Proposed by: Petra the Devil Child

Description: The World Assembly,

Respecting the rights of families to raise their children as they deem fit,

Nonetheless recognizes that:
a. Families who do not vaccinate their children often do so at that child's expense and without their consent.
b. A close to 100% vaccination rate is often necessary to prevent outbreaks of infectious diseases in the vaccinated population or those individuals who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons.
c. Vaccines have long been proven as safe and effective, with little or no adverse effects.

With these three points in mind, the WA mandates that all member-nations:

1. Make vaccinations for such infectious diseases as influenza, diphtheria, and measles mandatory for all citizens, excepting those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons.
and
2. Make these vaccinations cheaply and easily available to all citizens.

Repeal "Nuclear Arms Possession Act"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
 

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#10

Proposed by: The Land of the Free Kingdom

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #10: Nuclear Arms Possession Act (Category: International Security; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: This proposal causes inequality throughout the NationStates. Granting WA members the right to nuclear weapons will severely harm the non WA members. There are other methods in engaging war with non WA members than using nukes on them. If we want to truly improve safety and human rights we can't allow for the WA members to control the non WA members with threats of bombing them. If we truly want to improve security then we must repeal this act.

Approvals: 7 (The Norwegian Lands, Father motherland, Ten Cities, Zykra, Eeveeville, Esperantujo 2, Espana y Portugal)

Status: Lacking Support (requires 86 more approvals)

Voting Ends: in 1 day 12 hours
