A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Proposed by: Wallenburg
General Assembly Resolution #128 “On Abortion” (Category: Civil Rights; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Unequivocally celebrating the commitment of this body to reproductive rights,
Determined to further this goal by the removal of laws which hinder the access patients have to reproductive care,
Noting that GAR #128 requires all abortion physicians to meet the same qualifications as surgeons and receive a degree of training equitable to that of surgeons, despite the vast majority of abortions not requiring any surgery,
Also noting that GAR #128 allows physicians to neglect their professional duties out of moral objection to abortion, a privilege not guaranteed concerning any other medical procedure,
Concerned that these terms obstruct the ability of pregnant individuals to access the reproductive care guaranteed to them under World Assembly law,
Confident that the political will of member nations and resolutions GAR #29 "Patient's Rights Act", GAR #286 "Reproductive Freedoms", GAR #499 "Access to Abortion", and GAR #523 "Patient Travel Freedoms" provide for the guarantee of reproductive freedom to all individuals under the jurisdiction of member states,
Resolved that the duplicate protections in GAR #128 do not outweigh the compromises it makes to the opponents of reproductive freedoms,
The World Assembly hereby repeals GAR #128 "On Abortion".
