General Assembly Resolution # 516
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #472 “Ban on Sterilisation of Minors etc” (Category: Civil Rights; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
Recognising the efforts made in GA #472, Ban on Sterilisation of Minors etc to prevent unnecessary sterilisation of minors;
Asserting that the purpose of independent review can be achieved with individual qualified medical professionals;
Concerned that Institutional Review Boards, as defined by GA#111, are bureaucratic institutions that are not required to be staffed with medical experts and thus serve no real purpose, except wasting the state's resources in setting up and maintaining such institutions;
Worried that requiring the permission of an Independent Review Board could unnecessarily prolong decision making in an emergency or in time-sensitive cases;
Further alarmed that clause two allows the World Assembly Compliance Commission (WACC) to create further regulations on behalf of the World Assembly, without needing to consult the will of the combined member nations;
Convinced that this Assembly should not pass legislation that empowers committees to create secondary legislation, as there is little supervision, if at all, over the actions these committees make;
Confident that regulations to ensure the proper review procedures for the sterilisation of minors can be instituted by further legislation without reducing the relevancy of member nations in the decisions concerning their own future;
Hereby repeals GA#472 "Ban on Sterilisation of Minors etc".
