    [NationStates] Abortion Legality Covention - Passed!

    Abortion Legality Convention
    A resolution to restrict civil freedoms in the interest of moral decency.
    Category: Moral Decency
    Strength: Mild
    Proposed by: Omigodtheykilledkenny2

    Description: The United Nations,

    REAFFIRMING Article 5 of The Universal Bill of Rights, that no one may be subjected to cruel or inhuman treatment,

    RECOGNISING that both scientific and moral opinion remains, and is likely to remain, irreparably divided over the issue of at what stage human life begins,

    ACKNOWLEDGING that there are many societies within the NSUN that would consider a fetus, and especially a developed fetus in the third trimester, to possess human characteristics and be deserving of special protection, whilst others would not,

    REGRETTING that such divisions render global resolution over abortion unlikely,

    SEEKING to establish a fair compromise:

    1. DECLARES that states have the right to declare abortion legal or illegal, and to pass legislation extending or restricting the right to an abortion;

    2. RECOMMENDS that in cases of rape, incest, severe fetal abnormality or where the continuation of the pregnancy poses severe medical risk to the mother, states permit abortion procedures;

    3. URGES states to prevent the Intact Dilation and Extraction (IDX or 'partial birth') procedure;

    4. CALLS FOR increased international research in fetal development, so as to develop greater understanding of the ramifications of abortion;

    5. REMINDS states that in the absence of completely reliable contraception, there may always remain a demand for abortion, and that legalisation and regulation is more likely to provide sanitary abortion possibilities.

    Once again we need to define our regional stance. This resolution sounds very interesting, and it does not force any position on member nations.

    Boikinstia shall vote on Tuesday morning or Monday night, when our regional position has been decided.

    Non NS playing Cyburbians: Do not vote in the poll, your votes are not counted. You are invited in, but in the meanwhile, only Cyburbians that are IN our Region (Cyburb) are the ones that can vote. And to the non UN members, I don't see why vote if it doesn't affect you, but I'm not against that, but if you're interested, join the UN.

    I'm for this one. I can't see where it creates additional impacts on existing laws, however it does create awareness and a reason to review those individual country laws, practices, and beliefs.

    Would those voting against please give me their arguement against the resolution?
