[PASSED] Prevention of Forced Sterilisation

Postby Maowi » Mon Sep 16, 2019 9:05 am

Prevention of Forced Sterilisation

Category: Civil Rights | Strength: Mild


The World Assembly,

Appalled at the unnecessary cruelty inherent in sterilising an individual against their will;

Shocked that forced sterilisation takes place nonetheless within the jurisdiction of several member nations;

Adamant that forced sterilisation as a punishment for sexual offenders is both purposeless and immoral, given the severe and long-term depression and anxiety it often causes;

Similarly determined that, in addition to its inherent cruelty, forced sterilisation used for the reduction of population sizes of minorities or the disabled is a dangerous tool in the hands of despotic regimes that can lead to devastating consequences for the groups they target;

Resolving to abolish this abominable practice;

Hereby,

  1. Defines, for the purposes of this resolution, "reproductive ability" as the ability to reproduce naturally without extensive medical intervention and "sterilisation" as the removal of an individual's reproductive ability;

  2. Prohibits the sterilisation of any individual without their informed consent given free from external material incentives, subject to previous extant World Assembly legislation;

  3. Requires that member nations:

    1. carry out thorough and regular investigations into all sterilisation services within their jurisdiction to detect any instances of illegal sterilisation;

    2. reasonably punish individuals responsible for any sterilisation illegal at the time of its occurrence under World Assembly law;
  4. Tasks the WACC with overseeeing Institutional Review Board decisions to ensure that sterilisations of minors or other non-legally competent peope are approved if and only if the necessity of sterilisation for the long-term health of that person has been certified;

  5. Urges member nations to offer and, where accepted, provide financial reparations or psychological therapy to victims of forced sterilisation.

    2. the sterilisation of any individual classified as not legally competent unless the sterilisation is essential for preventing long-term damage to the individual's health, subject to previously passed, extant World Assembly legislation;

    3. the extradition of any individual to a location in which they may be subject to sterilisation without their informed consent;

From what I observed the primary reason the prior resolution failed is due to nations not being able to use sterilization as a form of criminal punishment. This resolution would seem to do the same. if the resolution were changed to allow as a form of criminal punishment, but forbid its use as population control, on minors, or to prevent the mental ill or diseased form breading then I would honestly fully support the resolution. as it stands however, as long as the resolution would forbid the use of sterilization as criminal punishment I can not support it.

"I support this redraft by the Maowese delegation. I have one note, however; in clause 3b, I suggest replacing "for the effecting of" with 'for carrying out' or 'for performing'."

OOC: It certainly did not fail due to nations wanting to punish criminals, it failed due to the minors issue. Read TNP's IFV dispatch.

(OOC: As continued from the thread in the defeated proposal, one of the main purposes of the original legislation was to prohibited sterilisation as punishment. Sterilisation does not stop rape from being committed, and the torturous nature of the practice certainly does not aid sterilisation. All that remains is retribution, which is never something in which it is good idea to base a punishment

Even if one allows a punishment purely retributive in nature, sterilisation is permanent as defined in the proposal. There should never be a punishment that cannot be reversed, since there is always a non-negligible chance that the accused could be innocent. This has been seen with legalisation such as Preventing the Execution of Innocents.)

Comrade Ambassador,

It seems to us that the draft of clause 1 in the original draft was stronger, as it is more specific. We recommend that the original form of clause 1 be reinstated.

Otherwise, at this time this seems to be well drafted.

Ambassadors, that ship has already sailed, so to speak. The wording of the Patient's Rights Act allows the guardian to refuse consent to treatment already. To wit:

(IV) Patients may refuse treatment...


and

(VIII) For the purposes of this legislation, "patient" may also refer to a legal guardian if the patient is under the age of majority[.]..


We believe it would raise a legitimate question of contradiction if this proposal purported to prevent the legal guardian from refusing treatment. The PRA contains no exceptions or limitation on why treatment may be refused.

Adamant that forced sterilisation as a punishment for sexual offenders is both purposeless and immoral, given the severe and long-term depression and anxiety it often causes;

Given how rapists ruin lives and destroy families, their “anxiety” or “depression” is very low on the scale of concern. It is neither purposeless, nor is it immoral, to sterilize serial rapists.

"Oh, I see. That is a very valid point, as some surgical methods of sterilisation are indeed reversible, although at high difficulty and cost. I think the distinction ought to be made between permanent and irreversible, in that permanent sterilisation does not naturally over time end, whereas irreversible sterilisation has that quality but is also unchangeable through active intervention. Hopefully my edit to the definition of sterilisation fixes the problem."

"It does, thank you. While I am only a substitute ambassador for the time, I think I can pledge my nation's support on this in good faith."

If you wish to use any of my previous work - be it World Assembly or otherwise - feel free to use it, but I ask that you credit me as a co-author. If the piece credits a non-CTE'd co-author, I ask that you approach them first.

"Yes, that would be adapted to reflect changes in extant, active legislation."
