I think we ought to turn to the text of GA 430, "Freedom of Religion" which "asserts, furthermore, the right of all individuals in World Assembly member-states to engage in any religious practice , or to refuse to engage in said practices , without fear of state punishment, reprisal,...

This is foundationally unacceptable. United Massachusetts would campaign against it vigourously. Bans on male circumcision are anti-Semitic. (OOC: This isn’t a ban on circumcision; it’s a ban on involuntary circumcision. Religious practices don’t mean much if they are forced and, besides, religious...

“I think the requirements already given in the proposal should be sufficient.” "All right. I must say, there's been surprisingly little feedback so far. I had complaints from the pro-life folks about the free-abortion entry, but logically I have to include that with pregnancy-related-healthcar...

This is veering significantly past the line of rebranding imo, and almost into a sort of plagiarism, if unintended. I would encourage the author to make further amendments to make this more distinctive from CD's original resolution, particularly in specific wordings. Banning Private Correctional Fac...

OOC: I think we would all appreciate it if the criticisms of the proposal were about the actual text of the proposal rather than implying some GenSec conspiracy or using an ad hominem fallacy. OOC: I agree we should lay off Sep. Having said that, I think it's still reasonable to point out the quest...

The first draft was submitted. And frankly, I doubt IA's motives have changed since then. He's just been pressed into a bit of a corner by the utter lunacy of the abortionplex idea. It isn't the current draft though, which has changed substantially since the first one. By political necessity, not a...

Women's liberation cannot be bought with the blood of their children. OOC: Pretty rhetoric, but ultimately just that. OOC: No, no, no. This is how the process of dehumanisation works.
