No, Picairn has misunderstood the clause. If there is no clinic you could reasonably travel to on your own, that is, if the state has pulled an Alabama and closed all but one clinic in a large area, the state is required to pay for travel. If you're a reasonable nation where abortion can be accessed at e.g. your GP, the state will never pay a dime for travel expenses.

(OOC: Unless the clinic is within walking distance then, according to clause 2 of this proposal, the government must fund transport to it.)

BS. First, it's clause 4 with the travel expenses and second "walking distance" is an insane and bad-faith interpretation.

It's written to avoid the Alabama and Texas examples where 5+ hours of travel to even get to the clinic is commonplace. If you can get an abortion at your GP (And every citizen has a GP), this is more than satisfied. The resolution is targeted at nations who make abortions "legal", but then legislates all clinics where you can get an abortion out of existence; if they do that, they'll pay the increased travel costs themselves, which ends up being more expensive for absolutely no gain.

Our kingdom has always been one of inclusiveness and progressive healthcare; especially in matters of reproductive health. We have always provided ample tools to both new parents and expectant women looking to terminate. We do not discriminate.
This legislation, however, seeks to strip member nations of their rights to govern on the grounds of their personal perspectives on abortion. This Assembly is supposed to foster cooperation; not target others for their personal beliefs. Therefore, we are opposed.

Ehhhhhh what? How does a nation have personal beliefs? Individuals have personal beliefs, and if you care about individuals then you will give them every opportunity to adhere to those beliefs, by making abortion freely accessible to those who want one, and allowing those who disagree with the idea of abortion to freely not get one. Maybe by reducing the cost maybe to like ehhhh zero for delivery and adoption and any other options you may have. Pretty simple, yeah?

"Hostility? You should see the comments from the Ambassador of Austria-Bohemia-Hungary where he claimed that my nation has a GDP per capita (PPP) of less than 2$/person, or when he claimed that I have an ulterior motive outside of economic objections, or when he strawmanned me into being against contraceptives when I have said nothing of the sort.

Travel subsidies, as mandated in this resolution, would require the state to cover all transportation costs abroad and at home, from the most expensive plane to the cheapest car. Abortion patients may choose to go first-class on any plane, train or vehicle to any abortion clinics, and the state still has to pay up. That is ridiculous.

Furthermore, we would have to build new clinics and hospitals in remote areas to cover all citizens. While Picairn already has a plan to gradually cover all people in several more years, this resolution would abruptly put a strain on our budget. Governments have a million things to do, and this radical proposal would cause us to cut funding to other health departments, which may lead to longer wait times, decreased quality, and more bureaucratic hassles.

See my response to Separatist Peoples. Nothing in Section 2 would prevent free rides for the rich.

Does "of their choice" part mean that abortion patients can choose whatever their preferred type of transportation and clinic are?
