Many anti- abortion laws have been passed in at least 16 states. Making matters way worse, the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade.

This is a huge attack on abortion rights, and I cannot describe how angry I am.

If our reproductive rights continue to be attacked, there will be horrible consequences. Safe abortions will be illegal, causing some women to resort to back ally abortions due to their desperation. Victims of sexual assault won’t be able to govern their own bodies, after they have had every ounce of sanity and well being stripped away from them. They will be forced to carry a baby they may not be ready for, and when the baby is born, poverty is a possibility depending on the circumstances of the woman. 

The bottom line is, the woman carrying the baby herself should be the one to make the decision to terminate her pregnancy or not. Not politicians, representatives, or supreme court justices. It shouldn’t just be about the baby. Medical researchers have agreed that a fetus is not capable of feeling pain until the third trimester of pregnancy. Despite this, 16 states have passed abortion bans based on the notion that fetuses experience pain early in pregnancy. Mothers have a big part in the life of a child. The mother is the one who goes through postpartum. The mother is the one who is a big part of raising the child. The mother is the one with the responsibilities of keeping the child safe (all of this with praise for the father as well). The point is that not all women are ready for this and shouldn’t be forced to do it.

Therefore, my new petition focus is to make our voices heard as much as possible. With your help, this petition can reach the people who can make these unjust laws stop. 

So please, sign and share this petition to as many platforms and places you can.

As Ruhkshanda Naz once said, “Until a woman is recognized as more than just a mother, daughter, and a sister, and is valued for being an individual, I will continue working for our rights”
