The delegation from Concrete Slab is conflicted on how to vote when it comes to this proposal. We agree with many of the sentiments of the good ambassador from Qvait, but still think the proposed recipient of this commendation has some merits.

While I agree and support women's right to have abortions like Qvait, I think that some of the terms stated in the GAR #128 are unnecessary and affects the access that patients have to reproductive care. Just like what Lucabaduka has mentioned, I believe that if doctors are able to neglect their duties, which are to improve the health of others, respect patient's right to each decisions that they make about about treatment and care and many more, just because of moral objection, then why else should a doctor serve? If many more doctors are able to neglect their professional duties out of moral objection to abortion, this will significantly hinder the process of promoting abortion access to women.

The more I think about it, I just become more skeptical of this proposal. I think the nominee is deserving but the writing is haphazard in some parts and generally lacks narrative and structure. It falls more than almost any other resolution for the "time to list some things" flaw, as it essentially consists of a list of UN/GA resolutions, a list of sports hostings and sports victories, and then a very very sloppy laundry list of every position they ever held in TEP. At no point does it create narrative and the TEP section in particular is sloppy, as positions do not equate to contributions.

I'm against with a "go back, fix the writing, and try again" theme

Active-duty, SPSF

When I saw this resolution, I noted that it was long, although not particularly dense. I feel like this is in the same vein of thought as HumanSanity's position. There is a vast array of items that are mentioned to existed, but scant details and arguments regarding what those things were, what they were like, what kinda of things happened. A lot of these clauses function like a short introduction, where you're not sure how to start something off, but it needs to happen at some point. Those cases are usually followed by elaboration and supporting details, but we just move on to the next intro.

I'm not an NS sports person, so what I need to understand about hosting a world cup needs to come from this text. What is mentioned in the proposal is that it's "a time-consuming and taxing undertaking that only the most skilled and trusted nations can handle". Why? What is the work that is involved with the entrants? There isn't information on this, but the affirmation of the difficulty in vague terms appears multiple times, and there was certainly enough room in the character limit for that. Why are Zwangzug, Whirl Islands, Vekaiyu, and Liventia namedropped and nation-tagged? What is their contribution to the argument that Kelssek is commendable?

Either a comma is missing here, or this sentence doesn't make much sense.

How is having a 5% badge in residency commendable?

Serving as Regional Cartographer from 2004 to 2008;

And then yes, what sort of things happened here? Relevant thoughts:
What was "Kelssek's part in framing the first Concordat", it's referenced here as though we are already supposed to know.
It's not clear to me that Vizier is commendable, given it's workload is functionally "Don't CTE or coup us". I don't immediately know if Viziers handled cit apps back then like they're supposed to now. That could be a great place for some of the supporting details we're missing.
What why was being provost in 2009 and 2011 noteworthy? What was accomplished in Magi during that time?
Why is being in Conclave noteworthy for 2011 to 2013? What kind of milestone cases were decided for the East where Kelssek presence was vital?

NEW GENERAL ASSEMBLY PROPOSAL DISCUSSION AND VOTE
---------------------------------------------------

Title: Long-term Storage of Produced Waste
Author: Molopovia
Purpose: To require private businesses to acquire certified storage bunkers or halls for problematic waste they may produce.

Molopovia wrote:The General Assembly,

Recognizing that there have been numerous resolutions concerning produced waste storage,

Noting that so far, even with nuclear, chemical and biological resolutions, there has been no catch-all resolution passed to this very day,

Acknowledging that despite all other resolutions' efforts, the problem of non-contained waste is still prevalent today,

Wishing to remedy this situation and further strengthen our goal to alleviate and eliminate produced waste that can harm people and the environment alike,

Further recognizing that although no issue can ever disappear permanently, steps can be taken to alleviate it to the very point where it is no longer significantly affecting our society,

Hereby defines:

PRODUCED WASTE - Any kind of waste discharged from factories and other industrial zones that has the potential to become a problem, e.g. toxic waste, nuclear waste, polluted waste, etc.

BUSINESS - For the purposes of this resolution, any business, private or government-owned, engaging in manufacturing or production of any kinds of goods, or otherwise its operations requiring to operate an Industrial Facility (see definition below.)

STORAGE FACILITY - Facilities carefully constructed and certified to store produced waste inside it without further environmental contamination and destruction for a long period of time.

INDUSTRIAL FACILITY - Any facility owned privately or by the government used to manufacture or produce anything, that can hold the potential of discharging produced waste.

NGOs - Initialism for Non-Government Organizations, of which are private organizations dedicating funding, resources and time to any important cause, in this case the ensured long-term storage of produced waste.

Hereby legislates that:

  1. All private businesses utilizing industrial facilities such as factories, must employ at least one storage facility, whether overground or as a bunker. Preexisting but certified facilities are allowed to be utilized by businesses.

  2. In the event that businesses cannot acquire a storage facility, national governments and NGOs are encouraged to provide for them by constructing facilities or bunkers around their country.

  3. Storage facilities must remain certified as safe for long-term containment, with a minimum standard of 70 years. They must be able to store at least 7,000 metric tons of waste and maintained professionally up until its intended duration.

  4. NGOs and national governments are encouraged to invest time and resources in assisting in the effort to an non-contained waste-free world.

  5. Measures must be taken in order to reduce waste discharge from industrial facilities of businesses.

  6. Penalties in the form of monetary fines shall be distributed to businesses that do not take the necessary measures to store waste properly, even if they are offered facilities from an NGO or a national government.

  7. Subsidization from the World Assembly and willing governments of member-states are encouraged, in order to advance towards the goal of a non-contained waste-free world.

  8. Governments must also take measures to provide for their own industrial state businesses to have their long-term storage facilities of produced waste.

  9. Occasional repairs updates, or overhauls if need be, to the storage facilities shall take place in order to maintain their upkeep as they age.

While this proposal, unlike another one that is currently at vote here, at least uses the list tag, it's still breaking with a rather large amount of GA formatting practices and contains some grammatical mistakes. Besides, the mandates of this proposal might be some of the most vague ones I've ever seen. "Measures must be taken [...] to reduce waste discharge" - what measures? How much reduction (a reduction by a gram is still a reduction)? Who certifies the facilities? This just demands to be bent by nations until it fits their interests and undermines the original intent. As it stands, it's just not in a passable state.

The disposal of waste is an issue that transcends national boundaries. In order to protect the environment, we must ensure that the international community acts swiftly to ensure that all produced waste is disposed of in a safe, clean and environmentally friendly manner.

The loopholes mean that, as stated, it is harder to access to the necessary care. Therefor, it should be repealed to make reproductive care easier to access.
