Personhood for Women!

    1. Pétition de

      Melanie Mayes

Women's reproductive healthcare has become a political football, with Congress and States acting in concert to remove funding for Planned Parenthood, and to establish numerous and capricious restrictions on legal procedures, and with presidential candidates, Congressmen, and pundits who don't even believe a woman has a right to contraception.

These positions are inconsistent with women's equality and liberty. If women and other people with uteri are full and free citizens of this nation, then they must have the right to make decisions about their own bodies from a full spectrum of choice. As that is currently being denied, women et al. evidently need a Personhood Amendment to guarantee agency over their own bodies.  If we can get 1000 people to agree and sign this petition, we will deliver it to potential supporter Senators Patty Murray, Al Franken, and Kristen Gillibrand and ask them to introduce it to Congress:

"A person identifying as a woman and/or having a uterus shall retain all of the full, basic, and fundamental rights of a US citizen as promised by the Declaration of Independence—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Congress and the States shall make no law that infringes upon a person's life, including but not limited to access to life-saving or life-improving healthcare, and/or medicines and procedures deemed necessary or beneficial by a medical professional and/or by the person having the uterus, procurement of which shall not be denied in and of itself by the presence of a uterus. Congress and the States shall make no law that infringes upon a person's liberty, including but not limited to autonomy over hir own body and the ability to make decisions regarding hir own healthcare. Congress and the States shall make no law that interferes with a person's pursuit of happiness, including but not limited to access to a full spectrum of reproductive options, freedom from forcible reproduction, and the ability to make decisions regarding family planning and family resources."

      This is important to me, not only because I'm a woman, but because we're all human and we all have the right to equality.

      ALL people should ne treated with humanity. The majority of the united states are the forgeiners; they raped and pilaged the native americans only to decide who is to live on their land? not fair

      Birth control is for more than just preventing pregnancy, but acne, poly-cystic ovarian syndrome, moods, cramps, etc. Pro-life or not, birth control needs to be OK no matter what.

      The religious right and all anti-abortionists need to understand that as long as a zygote or fetus is part of somebody else's body it is that person's property and theirs to dispose of as they see fit! If they're going to call it a person and give it rights then it should be liable as a person - unlawful entry, trespass, actual and or grievous bodily harm and theft spring to mind!
