Repeal: “Reproductive Freedoms”

General Assembly Resolution #286 “Reproductive Freedoms” (Category: Human Rights; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

World Assembly members,
RECOGNIZING that current laws on abortion do not protect the future human lives of newborns in many countries, many of who are victims of lack of responsibility by parents. As well as REALIZING the lasting emotional pain women feel thereafter.

REALIZING that the current bill’s effect is close to nothing to reduce unnecessary abortions.

YEARNING to reduce the prevalence of abortions in circumstances where the practice thereof is unneeded.

SHOCKED that GAR #286 allows for abortion in all circumstances up until the very date of birth, when a fetus is, in almost every way, indistinguishable from its newborn counterparts.

RECOGNIZING that there are other alternatives, such as birth control, to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

ACKNOWLEDGING that many nations, particularly those who hold serious moral reservations about the practice of abortion, may seek other ways to deal with unwanted pregnancies while conforming to their moral compass,

REALIZING that there are more moral alternatives to the current bill that can be worked out to satisfy both the parent and protect the child which is being born.

SEEING that a woman controls her body.

However, SEEING that it is immoral and wrong that another individual makes the choice over another’s existence.

Yet, ACKNOWLEDGING that these options are questionable in certain life-threatening or dangerous situations.

BELIEVING that these rights will be worked out by the World Assembly to remain.

So with all this,

BELIEVING that we, the World Assembly, will work on a more moral, benefiting and sustainable replacement for Resolution #286.

Hereby repeals Reproductive Freedoms(GAR#286).
