[DRAFT] Repeal "On Abortion"

Postby Wallenburg » Mon Feb 01, 2021 2:03 pm

Repeal "On Abortion​​"
Image
Category: Repeal || Resolution: GAR #128 || Proposed by: Wallenburg

Unequivocally celebrating the commitment of this body to reproductive rights,

Determined to further this goal by the removal of laws which hinder the access patients have to reproductive care,

Noting that GAR #128 requires all abortion physicians to meet the same qualifications as surgeons and receive a degree of training equitable to that of surgeons, despite the vast majority of abortions not requiring any surgery,

Also noting that GAR #128 allows physicians to neglect their professional duties out of moral objection to abortion, a privilege not guaranteed concerning any other medical procedure,

Concerned that these terms obstruct the ability of pregnant individuals to access the reproductive care guaranteed to them under World Assembly law,

Confident that the political will of member nations and resolutions GAR #29 "Patient's Rights Act", GAR #286 "Reproductive Freedoms", GAR #499 "Access to Abortion", and GAR #523 "Patient Travel Freedoms" provide for the guarantee of reproductive freedom to all individuals under the jurisdiction of member states,

Resolved that the duplicate protections in GAR #128 do not outweigh the compromises it makes to the opponents of reproductive freedoms,

The World Assembly hereby repeals GAR #128 "On Abortion".

I must admit when I saw this thread appear in the thread feed I thought to myself "oh no, not another shitty attempt at a repeal of #128 by the pro-lifers", but much to my surprise I found it's Wallenburg that's authoring it. I then got comfortable for some reading, and after going through the draft I think this actually has significant merit. Support, pending anyone pointing out something I've missed.

You only noticed this recently?
On the other hand, I have heard arguments that gynecologists in general lack the surgical expertise to handle complications.

HOW DOES ABORTION TAKE PLACE?
In 2017, medical abortions accounted for 39% of all abortions (AGI).
In 2018, 60% of reported abortions were accomplished by curettage (which includes dilatation and evacuation). Most curettage abortions are suction procedures (CDC).
Medical abortions made up approximately 40% of all abortions reported in 2018 (CDC).
Ninety-six per cent of the more than 140,000 second-trimester abortions that occur annually in the USA are accomplished by dilation and evacuation (D&E) (NAF).

ABORTION FATALITY
In 2017, two women were reported to have died as a result of complications from induced abortion. Between 1973-2015, a reported 447 women died due to complications from legal abortion (CDC).


Now given this, the fact that only two fatalities happened in a year might suggest that the requirement might be overkill. Of course that doesn't consider uterine perforation which could lead to the inability to have any children in the future.

But, sure, we need Sweeney Todd to perform abortions.

This repeal will receive Daarwyrth's full support. An individual seeking to obtain access to abortion should not be hindered by the superstitious beliefs of a medical professional nor of any other individual. And while it is vitally important that such procedures are performed by sufficiently qualified medical personnel, it seems excessive to demand a surgeon's qualification for this procedure.

This is why our glorious Empress, Roberta I, has instructed her delegation to the World Assembly to support this repeal once it reaches the floor.
