Reproductive Healthcare Act


  • EU

    I'm proposing the following Amendments to address my concerns with the act:


    (This would fix procedural inaccuracies and make the legislation compatible with EU Law.)
    Amendment I:

    Sec. 3: Feminine Hygiene Products

    (a) There shall be provided to the Member States an opportunity to receive a grant of EHO money, up to five hundred seventy million EMUs ($570,000,000) per qualifying Member States from the European Health Organization of up to five hundred seventy million euros (570 000 000€), provided such qualifying the member state satisfy the following criteria:


    (Reworded for clarity.)
    Amendment II:

    (2) The Qualifying Member States must operate a program in all institutions of public education which receive any funds from the EHO European Health Organisation. This program must allow for all enrolled students of such institutions which who menstruate access to any and all products listed in Section 3(a)(1) free of charge at point of acquisition ((omitted the period here)) for personal use.


    With the new proposed amendments, I'm extending debate until 1 May 2021 at 12h00 GMT.

    Charles Michel
    Council Speaker and Councilor for Fremet


  • Commission

    Inimicus supports this Act with Speaker Michel's amendments included.

    Nicholas Benfield


  • EU

    Emma Granger
    Councillor for Montenbourg


  • EU

    I hereby proppose an amendment to Sec. 3 in the criteria section:

    (1) The following products are to be made exempt from any form of tax imposed by the Member States:may not attract any extra taxation over the standard VAT rate or have tax differences between feminine and male hygiene products:

    I would also suggest we add male hygiene products to any scheme I see no reason why women should get additional products free to the mens products if we can give out femimine hygiene and reproductive healthcare free why should those with male genitalia not be able to get condoms free as well . In a way its highly sexist to give only one gender or sex free products.

    As such I present a second ammendment:
    Sec. 3: Feminine and Male Hygiene and Reproductive Care Products

    (A) Tampons;

    (B) Menstrual pads;

    (C) Contraceptive pills;

    (D) Sanitary napkins; and

    (E) Any products which are sold with the intention of being used for male or feminine hygiene.

    (F)Male reproductive care products including Condoms or Contraceptive Care including surgery
