Vote Against GA resolution Regulation On The Integrity Of Genetic Data

General Assembly Vote Recommendation

Part of the Information for WA Voters program

Resolution at Vote: Regulation On The Integrity Of Genetic Data
Vote Recommendation: Against

Resolution Analysis
This proposal seeks to protect the sanctity and privacy of sapient beings' DNA. To protect the integrity of genetic data, it prohibits non-medical DNA testing laboratories from sharing said information, though with the exception that these data can be shared for judicial purposes and that these data can be shared to fulfill a contractual obligation. To enforce these provisions, this proposal creates the World Assembly Genetic Data Oversight Authority (WAGDOA) which is tasked with enforcing the provisions of this resolution and with other tasks relating to ensuring the integrity of genetic data.

While this resolution is ultimately well meaning, there are several faults that we find. First, the policies to be enforced with WAGDOA read more like one idea with a series of exceptions to the norm than anything else. Second, we also find this resolution to ultimately be a confusing jumble and wish it were better refined stylistically, clearly spelling its provisions out rather than the confusing jumble it is at the current moment.

For these reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote Against the General Assembly Resolution at vote, "Regulation on the Integrity of Genetic Data".
