Pledge to Oppose the “Personhood” Amendment
to oppose the “Personhood” Amendment.
I BELIEVE it is wrong to ban abortion in cases of rape and incest. It is wrong to punish women who become impregnated by their attackers.
I BELIEVE in respecting women. Important personal and private decisions about birth control, fertility treatments, and whether or not to end a pregnancy that threatens a woman’s health should be made by women with their families, doctors, and faith leaders—not the government or politicians.
I OPPOSE criminalizing medical care. Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals need to be able to put their patients first—ahead of politicians, lawyers, and the courts.
I OPPOSE attempts to eliminate the separation of government and religion. I support religious freedom and oppose enshrining a singular religious belief in our state constitution.
I OPPOSE the sweeping legal consequences of the “Personhood” amendment.
I OPPOSE the “Personhood” Amendment because
