NO MORE BUCK V. BELL ACT

Quote
Whereas, many States in Atlasia have a shameful record of forcibly or coercively sterilizing otherwise healthy criminals, minors, social outcasts, and persons who lacked the capacity to give informed consent; and

Whereas, sterilizing otherwise healthy persons deprives such persons of their God-given rights to form families; and

Whereas, sterilizing otherwise healthy persons negatively impacts the public health, safety, and welfare of Atlasia by limiting potential families and population growth, while wasting scarce medical resources; and

Whereas, limiting the risk of coercive sterilizations while balancing the need for sterilization in certain medically-necessary cases is important;

Now therefore, the Atlasian Senate Assembled hereby ordains the following:

1. No federal court in Atlasia shall authorize or require the sterilization of a minor, nor of a prisoner, nor of an adult who lacks the capacity to give informed consent.

2. It shall be unlawful for any licensed physician or healthcare practioner to perform a vasectomy, salpingectomy, hysterectomy, tubal ligation, orchiectomy, penectomy, mastectomy, or other surgical sexual sterilization procedure on any otherwise healthy adult who is imprisoned or who is involuntarily committed or otherwise lacks the mental capacity to give informed consent.

3. It shall be unlawful for any licensed physician or healthcare practioner to perform a vasectomy, salpingectomy, hysterectomy, tubal ligation, orchiectomy, penectomy, mastectomy, or other surgical sexual sterilization procedure on any otherwise healthy minor child younger than eighteen (18) years of age.

4. Prior to or at the time of a patient request for any sexual sterilization procedure, a full, reasonable, and comprehensible medical explanation as to the meaning and consequences of such an operation and as to alternative methods of contraception shall be given by the physician to the person requesting the operation. No procedure shall be performed until at least ten (10) days subsequent to the person requesting the procedure offering written consent and receiving the counseling prescribed herein, except where such delay poses a substantial risk to the physical health of the patient.

5. A licensed physician or healthcare practioner who performs a vasectomy, salpingectomy, hysterectomy, tubal ligation, orchiectomy, penectomy, mastectomy, or other surgical sexual sterilization procedure upon any otherwise healthy person in violation of this act shall be liable to the individual if injured (including any physical, psychological, emotional, or physiological harms) by such procedure, related treatment, or the aftereffects of the procedure.

6. An individual eligible to sue may, not later than the day that is fifteen (15) years after the date on which the individual turns eighteen (18) years of age, regains mental capacity, is discharged from imprisonment, or otherwise becomes eligible to sue, bring a civil action against such physician in a court of competent jurisdiction for:

A. declaratory or injunctive relief;

B. compensatory damages;

C. punitive damages; and

D. attorneyís fees and costs.

7. Subject to the rules of law applicable generally to negligence, no licensed physician or healthcare practioner shall be either civilly or criminally liable by reason of having refused or declined to perform a vasectomy, salpingectomy, hysterectomy, tubal ligation, orchiectomy, penectomy, mastectomy, or other surgical sexual sterilization procedure upon any otherwise healthy person in Atlasia.

8. No federal public funds shall be expended to pay for or facilitate a vasectomy, salpingectomy, hysterectomy, tubal ligation, orchiectomy, penectomy, mastectomy, or other surgical sexual sterilization procedure upon any otherwise healthy person.

9. No provision in this act shall apply to or be construed so as to prevent, control, or regulate the medical or surgical treatment for sound therapeutic reasons of any person in Atlasia by a licensed physician or healthcare practioner, which treatment may require sexual sterilization or may involve the nullification or destruction of the reproductive functions, including but not limited to treatment for cancer. For the purposes of this provision the sterilization of a person whose physical health would be endangered by a pregnancy shall be deemed a medical or surgical treatment for sound therapeutic reasons.

10. This act shall take effect thirty (30) days from the date of passage.

EMINENT DOMAIN LIMITATION ACT

Quote
1. Before the Atlasian government may take real property for public use through condemnation, such government shall make a good-faith offer to purchase the real property from the owner.

2. If a good-faith offer to purchase the real property from the owner is unsuccessful, the condemnation process shall proceed as follows:

A. Upon the filing of a petition for condemnation, the court having jurisdiction over the petition shall authorize a fair appraisal to be conducted of the property being condemned by a neutral appraiser at the expense of the condemnor. Such appraisal shall be presumptively fair and just compensation.

B. The condemnor shall deposit the amount determined by the appraisal to the court to be held in escrow pending the condemnation action.

C. If the valuation determined by the appraisal exceeds $25,000.00 the condemnee may request a jury trial as to just compensation.

D. If the real property being condemned is to be used for a road or utility project, does not require the removal of a building or grave or the displacement of a person residing upon such real property, and was not initially appraised as exceeding $1 Million, the condemnor may take control of the real property during the pendency of the case after fifteen (15) days subsequent to depositing the required escrow amount.

E. If the real property being condemned exceeds fifty percent (50%) of the total land area of a parcel or results in the diminution in value of a parcel exceeding fifty percent (50%), the condemnee may require the condemnor to purchase the entire parcel.

3. If during the thirty (30) year period subsequent to condemnation the real property ceases to be used by the public, the former owner shall have the right of first refusal to repurchase the real property at the same price as was paid by the condemnor and interest thereon.

4. Whenever it is determined in a declaratory judgment proceeding that a person's property has been taken or damaged within the meaning of the Atlasian constitution and compensation has not been paid or any action taken to determine the compensation within ninety (90) days following the entry of such declaratory judgment order or decree, the court which entered the order or decree may, upon motion of such person after reasonable notice to the adverse party, enter a further order appointing condemnation jurors to determine the compensation. During such proceedings:

A. The appointment of condemnation jurors and all proceedings thereafter shall be governed by the procedure prescribed for the condemning authority.
