The current WA Resolution, Convention On Animal Testing has been posted on our off-site forums at:

General Assembly Resolution At Vote

Convention On Animal Testing

A resolution to modify universal standards of healthcare.

Category: Health

Area of Effect: Bioethics

The World Assembly,

Concerned by the lack of legislation regarding the treatment of testing animals,

Recognising that animals deserve to be properly treated during and after testing,

Noting that mistreatment of animal test subjects may lead to severe distress for the animal and inaccurate research results, and

Seeking to establish regulations on the treatment of animal test subjects,


Defines, for the purposes of this resolution:

A "research facility" as any facility, private or public, which engages in animal testing for any scientific purpose, including consumer safety and weapons testing;

A "test animal" as a sentient but not sapient animal in the custody of any research facility for scientific purposes;

"Ethical testing", and all derived terms, as testing carried out on an animal in a way that is not maliciously intended to cause severe distress or harm to the animal;

Establishes the World Assembly Board of Bioethics (WABB), which will be tasked with the following:

Overseeing scientific experimentation in member states to ensure animal testing is being carried out ethically and in accordance with all relevant WA law;

Reporting instances of noncompliance with the ethical requirements mandated in this resolution to the local authorities for penalisation;

Dictates that member states must reasonably and proportionally penalise research labs upon receiving a report about unethical testing from the WABB;

Mandates that all research facilities in member states that carry out testing on animals:

Report all procedures carried out on animals, and euthanisations in their custody to the WABB;

Carry out solely ethical testing, as defined in section 1c;

Requires that when a research facility is finished using an animal in its experiments:

The animal is returned to the wild if it was captured from the wild, has a good chance of being returned to its natural habitat successfully, and if it poses no risk to the environment it is being released into, such as carrying diseases; or;

The animal is given to a legal entity capable of taking care of it for the rest of its lifespan; if:

it is expected to live for over a year after its adoption,

it is healthy, not sick, and of good disposition, and,

it is unable to survive without help, or is of a species commonly kept as pet or livestock;

If the animal is unable to be adopted or released into the wild then it may be humanely euthanised;

Clarifies that an animal can still be adopted even if it is unable to live for over a year, and;

Prohibits the intentional killing of a test animal in a cruel manner, in addition to forbidding the killing of a former test animal before the viability of its adoption or release into the wild has been examined, and it has been found unsuitable for both.

Have you got your issues set to full throttle? Maybe you could do that and then just select all of the choices that obviously increase the black market.

Fill your bowl to the brim
and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife
and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security
and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people's approval
and you will be their prisoner.

Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity.

Fastest way to increase your black market is to get an issue that allows you to take control over your economy.

A state controlled economy will jump your black market to about 20% or so off that decision alone. It does come at a price to your other stats though.

What is … ?

The Meditations of Happy Gilmour

Monday, 18 November, 2019 :: 10
Can you coax your mind from its wandering
and keep to the original oneness?
Can you let your body become
supple as a newborn child's?
Can you cleanse your inner vision
until you see nothing but the light?
Can you love people and lead them
without imposing your will?
Can you deal with the most vital matters
by letting events take their course?
Can you step back from your own mind
and thus understand all things?

Giving birth and nourishing,
having without possessing,
acting with no expectations,
leading and not trying to control:
this is the supreme virtue.
