Human Rights Issue

Postby Democratic Parndia » Sun Mar 31, 2019 1:03 pm

Infanticide is a problem throughout the world. We can make history with a huge human rights issue.

Whether you are pro life or pro choice, we need to all understand that babies born alive, are alive and need to be protected!

Some useful advice that may be of use to you would be to post your draft here in the forum, wait for other members of the Assembly to read over it and provide their feedback, make adjustments based on that, and THEN submit it for approval. Drafting and interacting with other members here increases your odds of success.

OOC: I'd be glad if you could point out how this contradicts Reproductive Freedoms? I'm not seeing it at the moment.

However, I'd find it odd that the GA, a body which doesn't even recognise an inherent right to life at any point in life, would actively protect the right to life of newborns.

Also, avoid references to 'humans'. WA nations are populated by a wide variety of weird and wonderful species. If you want to go ahead with this, you'd have to find a way of defining the thresholds for being a 'baby' in a non-human-centric way.

It should make sense that the practice of literal infanticide should be abolished. After a child is born, abortion proponents contend, the child is alive. Then why won't they protect said life after birth? I don't know.

Why do you believe it to be more important to protect the lives of children than those of adults?

And how is this an international issue?

“I’ve put some feedback in red. Overall, this is a good concept to tackle, and I can’t see any issues that could prohibit legislating in this direction.”
Democratic Parndia wrote:Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act


A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights. This tells me that this is a civil rights proposal, which seems like the correct choice, though I recommend making it more explicit. However, what is the strength? That should also be placed on the draft somewhere.

Understanding that all human life is valuable especially when a baby is born. The General Assembly manages hundreds of thousands of species, so I recommend replacing ‘human’ with ‘sapient’, or just removing it.

Affirmating that all born alive babies shall be protected. You should have ‘affirming’ rather than ‘affirmating’.

Dismayed that infanticide, the deliberate killing of a born alive baby, is still taken place throughout the whole world. It should be ‘taking’, not ‘taken’.

The General Assembly hereby:

Affirms that any child born alive following after an abortion procedure, is a human being and is entitled to the basic rights of life. Once again, you mean ‘sapient’ instead of ‘human’.

Protects any child born alive following a failed abortion, will be protected as a living human being. How is this protection going to operate? More than a normal child, given the circumstances, or the same, due to equality?

Born alive abortion survivors are entitled to the same medical attention as any other child. I believe this is already covered under the Charter of Civil Rights, GA #035.

Criminalizes Doctors who kill babies born alive will be prosecuted to the highest extent of the law and any doctor who deliberately leaves a baby to die following a failed abortion will also be prosecuted to the highest extent of the law. This sentence doesn’t quite make sense grammatically, so I recommend rewording it. Also, the ‘highest extent of the law’, would be life imprisonment in many nations, which could be excessive.

(OOC: This is an international issue since children born after failed abortions exist internationally, and the right to life for born children exists on a multiversal scale.)

The lives of living children after birth are worthy of protection. At the very least, we shouldn't kill them.

It's an international issue in that human rights issues are international issues.
