North Dakota Legislature: Stop the ND Personhood bills, SB 2303, SB 2302 and SCR 4009

      Sarah Edwards

      Cummings, ND

The ND personhood bills supposedly only make abortion illegal. However, when carefully reading these they actually restrict women's liberties and decision making in many more ways. Childless couples would face almost insurmountable hurdles because of a restriction on embryo freezing. Women could be limited in where and how they want to give birth, what interventions they might use, and what birth control is available to them. This is not about being pro-life or pro-choice. Other, much less restrictive laws, could be introduced to outlaw abortion. These bills restrict women's and couple's reproductive rights in a much broader way.

Please sign this petition to help us defeat the 2013 "personhood" bills and allow all North Dakota women the same rights afforded to all US Citizens under the constitution.

To:
North Dakota Legislature
Stop the ND Personhood bills, SB 2303, SB 2302 and SCR 4009

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I personally depend on taking hormonal birth control for my health and wellbeing due to an incurable disease. I feel it is wrong for politicians to decide what a woman can or can not do with her body, especially when their decisions mean that I will have to suffer agonizing pain every month of the year because I am not allowed the only medical treatment that has provided me with relief.

      As a young female, I want to have the right to be able to choose when I want to have a family and what I'm able to do with my body. Everyone's body is there temple and only they should have control over it.

      It is foolish and unrealistic to think that a free society should accept the intrusive behavior of a few narrow minded people who are being hypocritical when they think they can decide what is and is not acceptable.
