Repeal: Ensuring Safe Syringe USe
Category: Repeal | Target: GA #482
Proposed by: Morover | Onsite Topic

General Assembly Resolution #482 “Ensuring Safe Syringe Use” (Category: Health; Area of Effect: Healthcare) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

The World Assembly,

Noting the good intentions of GAR#482: "Ensuring Safe Syringe Use";

Believing that, despite these good intentions and eloquence of the target, it does have some significant issues, which most notably include the following:

  1. The use of the term "syringe" in place of "needle", the intended issue of GAR#482, which makes nearly all of the clauses obsolete, given that they have no actual significant effect on actual syringes, as syringes need significantly less disinfection than needles;
  2. The ambiguous use of the word "OR" in clause 1(a) which could lead to some confusion among the actual goal of the Epidemic and Pandemic Alert and Response Center;
Knowing that, as a result of these issues, the target resolution doesn't actually accomplish its goals effectively;

Wishing to replace GAR#482 with a resolution that does actually accomplish the noble goal that the target was initially intended to do;

Hereby repeals and strikes out "Ensuring Safe Syringe Use".
Voting Instructions:
  • Vote For if you want the Delegate to vote For the resolution.
  • Vote Against if you want the Delegate to vote Against the resolution.
  • Vote Abstain if you want the Delegate to abstain from voting on this resolution.
  • Vote Present if you are personally abstaining from this vote.

Detailed opinions with your vote are appreciated and encouraged!

The repeal at vote is well-written and outlines a few major reasons that the target should be repealed. These points were actually pointed out near the beginning of the voting period for the target resolution, but it wasn't enough for a lot of people to vote against without replacement legislation. Now, replacement legislation has been drafted and is simply waiting on "Ensuring Safe Syringe Use" to be repealed. Both the repeal and the replacement adequately address the issues that are in the initial proposal, without being too over-the-top about it. While the repeal is rather short and you can read the issues there, a brief synopsis of them is that some of the wording is overly ambiguous, to the point where the meaning is muddled, and that it constantly refers to "syringes" despite the author meaning to address needles, not syringes. The replacement proposal has neither of these issues.

For these reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote FOR the at-vote proposal in the General Assembly
