Legislators in the House and Senate have officially introduced bills that would give full legal protections to fertilized eggs. These so-called "Personhood" bills are a dangerous and misguided attack on reproductive healthcare for women. Not only would this effectively ban abortion, but some birth control as well. IVF treatments would also be in jeopardy. And doctors who perform abortions, and the women who get abortions, could be subject to criminal prosecution.
This is an extreme measure to control women's bodies, and it's important that everyone contacts their representatives and senators to tell them to vote "NO!" on personhood. Use the link to the right to contact your elected officials today!
