Historical Resolution #153
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Historical Resolution #2 “Scientific Freedom” (Category: Free Trade; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The General Assembly of the United Nations,
COMMENDING Resolution #2 for its intent to bring forth increased freedoms,
CONSIDERING that simply stating that a country "has long stood for Scientific Freedom", as seen in this resolution, does not require anything of UN Members, nor does it urge UN Members to bring forth initiatives or commissions to promote Scientific Freedom,
ALSO CONSIDERING that Resolution #2 neither lists a clear definition or explanation as to what constitutes Scientific Freedom, nor does it provide any clear framework or plans to bring about its cause,
CONCERNED that this resolution overlooks the harmful effects of unrestricted Scientific Freedom, which would lead to numerous painful, deadly, unsafe, and unethical scientific practices being forcibly legal in all UN Member nations,
CONCLUDING that Resolution #2 does not meet the desirable standards of UN resolutions for its disregard for potentially harmful and unjustifiable scientific practices and failure to provide any clear structure in bringing about necessary Scientific Freedom,
UNDERSTANDING that the freedom of safe and ethical scientific practices should be protected for numerous purposes,
REPEALS Resolution #2: Scientific Freedom.
