OOC: Just realized that much of this may contradict GA #272, in terms of riot suppression with non-lethal chemical suppression methods. Could catch both hallucinogens and sedatives.

OOC post. And sorry it took me a while to get back to you on this. Friday basically disappeared into some kind of black hole and ceased to exist.

OOC: Call it something else but convention? That's almost as annoying as titles starting with "on". It's an act on data protection, so just go with Data Protection Act? Or just simply "Data Protection". It's supposed to be a title, not a description.

What possible purpose would be achieve by sterilizing someone as a criminal punishment. If we are referring to men, castration is not the same as sterilization.

This resolution does not directly take away our non-degradable plastics. OOC: Not. The. Point.

OOC: Contradicts PRA as long as sterilization counts as a medical procedure (and all existing RL methods to do so, do count). Technically giving meds to achieve the same effect likely wouldn't, so you could make a resolution about that if you wanted. Implanting a hormone release system into a person...
