Repeal “Abortion Rights”
A proposal to repeal a previously passed resolution

Category: Repeal
Resolution: #61
Proposed by: Dorksonia

Description: UN Resolution #61: Abortion Rights (Category: Human Rights; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: RECOGNIZES that abortion is an issue where good people on each side of this issue disagree.

PRAISES the concern for women in crisis and with needs.

POINTS OUT Resolution #61 provides no details or reasons for it’s argument.

EMPHASIZES Resolution #61 does not limit abortion to “Women’s health” during later trimesters, but allows a woman to have an abortion for any reason whatsoever (age, gender of the baby, etc.), for no reason whatsoever, without parental consent, without spousal consent, and at any any point up to and including the ninth month of pregnancy.

ACKNOWLEDGES this repeal will not prohibit any abortions, but permit it to be a daily issue in which a nation may decide this issue for themselves.

NOTES people are passionate on both sides of this issue and repealing this issue will indeed be “pro-choice” (member nations may choose to permit abortions for any reason, limit it as they deem necessary, or prohibit).

CONSIDERS the further medical technology of prenatal surgery deeming the unborn child as a “patient” and questions if abortion does not protect the rights of these individuals based on their location.

QUESTIONS if women are able to make informed choices without further research into the pychological and emotional side effects of such a common surgical procedure.

I vote in favour of the motion.

is this one coming up for vote?

Its the next one on the docket.

I vote ABSOLUTELY for this resolution.

I don’t have a vote in TEP, but I do hope this passes, because there are much better, tougher replacements on the way. The old one had too many loopholes.

Oh goodie… Exactly why shouldn’t this be a national issue now? What does abortion have to do with the international community exactly?

:foxy:

International law has well-established a right to sexual privacy, bodily safety, and freedom of choice. Abortion is a right which transcends national boundaries.

I’m in favour of the motion as well, as I’d much rather decide on my own. Hopefully abortion won’t come up again, but I doubt that’ll be the case.
