*SUBMITTED* Repeal "dignified End-of-Life Choices"

The World Assembly:

1. OUTRAGED that "Dignified End-of-Life Choices" does not involve international relations, and is merely forcing a law upon the nations of the World Assembly and their people.

2a. While NOTICING that many nations are very religious; some by traditional practice, some even by law.

2b. And ACKNOWLEDGING that "Dignified End-of-Life Choices" infringes upon any nations' religious beliefs involving the preservation of life.

3a. NOTING that "Dignified End of Life Choices" states, as quoted:

"This resolution shall not preclude a nation from enacting an assisted suicide law that is less or more restrictive than this resolution, so long as said law complies with Sections 4 (D) and 4 (E)."

3b. NOTICING that this allows for heavy restrictions on euthanasia, which could be taken advantage of by member nations.

3c. REALISING that point 3a essentially renders the majority of the resolution moot.

The World Assembly hereby repeals "Dignified End of Life Choices".

Why the new thread?

And I'm still opposing.

Those affected by the views, opinions or general demeanour of this poster should review this puppy picture. Those affected by puppy pictures should consider investing in an isolation tank.

Isn't it curious how people will claim they are against tribalism, then pigeonhole themselves into tribes?

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
I use obviously in italics to emphasise the conveying of sarcasm. If I've put excessive obviously's into a post that means I'm being sarcastic
