GENERAL ASSEMBLY PROPOSAL
ID: nigerian_kenya_1429946256

Repeal "Reproductive Freedoms"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
 

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#286

Proposed by: Nigerian Kenya

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,

UNDERSTANDING that GA Resolution #286 (Reproductive Freedoms) was written with good intentions and does not force any individual to get an abortion, but

BELIEVING that the extent of the resolution is simply too much, and

NOTING that abortion for rape, incest, life of the mother, and severe child disabilities is already permitted by GA Resolution #128 (On Abortion), and

EMPASIZING that problems with mothers getting abortions done illegally can be simply be solved with a larger police force and a more religious society, and also

AGREEING that the following flaws exist in GA Resolution #286:
• Its language is such that it forces complete abortion-on-demand on all member nations, including late-term and partial birth abortions, when the fetus is generally agreed to be alive and is capable of survival outside the womb, something even many pro-choice advocates are against.

• It allows impediments to abortion as long as they are also applied to procedures of “similar risk and complexity” and prohibits “animosity” towards people who get abortions, but it does not define what constitutes “animosity” or what is of “similar risk and complexity” to abortion, making enforcement of the resolution rather difficult.

• It forces abortion-on-demand on all member nations without restriction or religious consideration, meaning that even nations with a strong religious focus have to allow abortion-on-demand.

• Its animosity clause arguably forces churches with a bias against abortion to allow people who have had an abortion or plan to do so into their religious services, which dispels church-state separation worldwide and makes it impossible for a church to truly respect any religion with a bias against abortions, and finally:

• Its animosity clause arguably forces doctors with a bias against abortion to perform such a procedure against their religious beliefs, which leaves a risk of the doctor purposely performing the procedure incorrectly to respect their religious beliefs, possibly causing great harm to the mother,
