Horrific: Rape Victims Charged With Felony For Seeking Abortions

Republicans in New Mexico are pushing a bill that would force victims of rape or incest to carry their pregnancies to term if they wanted a sexual assault trial – and would charge them with a felony if their pregnancy was terminated.
This isn't about preserving evidence, it's about denying basic human rights -- and we cannot allow this heartless, unnecessary and blatantly unconstitutional bill to become law. Please, join us in urging the state legislature to kill Bill 206. Stand up for the women of New Mexico: sign your name to our petition today!
PETITION TO NEW MEXICO LEGISLATURE:Bill 206 infringes on the rights of women, punishes sexual assault survivors for their rapists' crimes, and forces them to relive their trauma in order to get justice. Don't let Republicans make this law – vote "no" on Bill 206 today!
