We object to everything except the fair trial guarntees outlined in clause 4. We believe that the remainder of this resolution arrogates to the World Assembly such powers as are inapppropriate and unnecessary for it to exercise. We say that the provisions of Article 2 of GAR 2 Every WA Member State ...

We *really* don't think this is a good idea. We hold the rights of free choice to be paramount - particularly since, in Thytian law, a foetus is not alive until it is born as a baby.

Doubtless your "replacement" will be as restrictive as humanly possible.

Opposed.

This is on you. Don't deflect the matter. Yea, fucking duh. That doesn't change the fact that this does simplify things moving forward. A new repeal will be submitted, and it will likely pass, again. It's not like this ruling has now banned repeals of On Universal Jurisdiction into all eternity. Un...

We are obviously opposed to this repeal for the same reason we have historically opposed the establishment of an international criminal court. However, this repeal is likely to pass.
