General Assembly Resolution # 250
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #44 “Reduction of Abortion Act” (Category: Social Justice; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
To People of the World Assembly:
APPLAUDING the authors intention of helping reduce abortion rates worldwide.
APPALLED that this resolution has been allowed to stand due to the fact that it has done nothing to reduce abortions.
Examples from GAR #44:
STRONGLY URGES member states to research, invest in, and provide universal access to abortion reduction services
FURTHER ENCOURAGES member states to provide financial aid to pregnant individuals and parents to reduce or remove economic reasons for abortion and economic barriers to childbirth
This resolution should have required the state to provide stated services if there ever was any real intent to reduce abortion. Also it only guarantees a right to information, but not the right to receive anything from a decision derived from such information.
FURTHERMORE Without requiring member states to provide all the options or guaranteeing this right to its citizenry; it opens the door to more abortions or unwanted births and/or pregnancies. Article 5, section A and Article 6 render this resolution useless due to if it is all ready banned in a member state, no assistance can or will be provided. It takes away what little power this Resolution had to begin with.
ADDITIONALLY Hopes future legislation can be passed that allows a universal right to choose.
HEREBY repeals GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 44
Reduction of Abortion Act, rendering it null and void.
