General Assembly Resolution # 487
A resolution to enact uniform standards that protect workers, consumers, and the general public.
Area of Effect: Safety
Proposed by: Morover
The World Assembly,
Believing in the rights of every sapient individual to have full bodily autonomy,
Knowing that the involuntary administration of certain drugs, medications, or other substances, can infringe on this right to bodily autonomy,
Wishing to regulate the involuntary administration of these substances so as to prevent a severe violation of natural sapient rights,
Defines, for the purposes of this resolution, an "undesirable substance" as any drug, medication, or other substance, whose primary intent in administration can be reasonably assumed to not be desired by the individual to whom it is being administered;
Subject to other World Assembly Legislation, bans the administration of undesirable substances to any sapient individual of legal competence who has not freely consented to the administration, except in the following circumstances:
the individual poses a reasonable threat to themselves or others, and must be sedated;
the individual is undergoing a medical procedure and needs to receive emergency medications, where consent is not able to be received;
the undesirable substance is being administered as capital punishment, lethal, non-painful doses must be administered in order to induce a humane death;
substances deemed necessary for the widespread public health of either the nation or the world at large must be administered, even if there are skeptics who are vocally opposed to such substances being administered;
Clarifies that, even under these exceptions, adverse effects that are not deemed necessary shall be minimized to the greatest extent which is possible.
