General Assembly Resolution # 191
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #145 “Animal Cruelty Prevention” (Category: Moral Decency; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
DETERMINING that "Animal Cruelty Prevention" does not address certain complexities, and that it neglects to place safeguards on certain exceptions that it grants:
"Animal Cruelty Prevention" considers any "reasonable person" qualified to determine the degree of care appropriate for an animal, rather than relying on expert advice that might be offered by a professional, such as a veterinarian;
Anyone is allowed to mistreat an animal, so long as the mistreatment is for religious reasons;
The definition of domestic animals can also be applied to humans, thus legalizing the sacrifice of human beings and other sapient creatures;
"Wild animals" may be abused or mistreated with impunity;
BELIEVING that these flaws may lead to grave and unintended consequences;
ASSERTING that it is in its best interest to repeal ineffective legislation, such as resolution #145;
REPEALS General Assembly Resolution #145, "Animal Cruelty Prevention."
