Celeste Ferguson started this petition to Senator Ted Cruz and

In passing this bill, you took away women's right to chose what to do with their own bodies. In some cases this is a death sentence to women. In essence you are taking all rights and power away from women and giving it to men, men who refuse to wear protection, men who are rapists, and yes this even happens within the confines of marriage. You are forcing people to seek medical services and asylum in neighboring states. Many women do not even realize at 6 weeks they are pregnant as this is only 2 weeks after a missed period. Do you know how hard this can be to track? Women who suffer from PCOS, women who don't have regular cycles from stress or other health issues. A woman's body is not a machine and dates are not exact every single month. It is not your right to chose for every single woman in the state of Texas, and say they no longer have a choice. Give the men vasectomy access. Make this free, or have insurance cover it. Why, when a woman can only have a baby once every 9 months, but a man can impregnate as many women as he has ejaculations every single day, is it our responsibility to NOT get pregnant? This should be EQUAL responsibility! 

I'm not pro-murdering babies.

I'm pro-Becky who found out at her 20 week anatomy scan that the infant she had been so excited to bring into this world had no brain and no lungs.

I'm pro-Susan who was sexually assaulted on her way home from work, only to come to the horrific realization that her assailant planted his seed in her when she got a positive pregnancy test result a month later.

I'm pro-Theresa who hemorrhaged due to a placental abruption, causing her parents, spouse, and children to have to make the impossible decision on whether to save her or her unborn child.

I'm pro-little Cathy who had her innocence ripped away from her by someone she should have been able to trust and her 11 year old body isn't mature enough to bear the consequence of that betrayal.

I'm pro-Melissa who's working two jobs just to make ends meet and has to choose between bringing another child into poverty or feeding the children she already has because her spouse walked out on her.

I'm pro-Emily who went through IVF, ending up with SIX viable implanted eggs requiring selective reduction in order to ensure the safety of her and a SAFE amount of fetuses.

I'm pro-Jessica who is FINALLY getting the strength to get away from her physically abusive spouse only to find out that she is carrying the monster's child.

I'm pro-Lindsay who lost her virginity in her sophomore year with a broken condom and now has to choose whether to be a teenage mom or just a teenager.

I'm pro-Courtney who just found out she's already 13 weeks along, but the egg never made it out of her fallopian tube so either she terminates the pregnancy or risks dying from internal bleeding.

You can argue and say that I'm pro-choice all you want, but the truth is:

I'm pro-life.

Their lives.

Women's lives.

You don't get to pick and choose which scenarios should be accepted.

It's not about which stories you don't agree with. It's about fighting for the women in the stories that you do agree with and the CHOICE that was made.

Women's rights are meant to protect ALL women, regardless of their situation!
