    Anti-Personhood Campaign/Oklahoma is trying to make Abortion Illegal and make a legal defination of when a fetus becomes a person


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Metalsarah shared these photos taken by her friend, an Oklahoma photographer (who wishes to remain anonymous for safety reasons) who snapped these portraits in protest against the controversial anti-abortion "personhood" bill that recently was passed by the state senate. 'There are strong conservative religious beliefs in play here in the Bible Belt. This theocratic influence in politics is regressive, damaging, and unconstitutional,' the photographer said. 'Every woman deserves access to safe medical technology. Every woman has the right to choose. The government has no place micromanaging what happens inside a woman's body.'

    Oklahoma is trying to make abortion illegal in our state. I, and a lot of other Oklahomans do not believe that the government should be taking away our choices. My friend did a photo shoot called "Anti-Personhood Campaign." Which shows women carrying signs in front of them saying things like "MOTHER BY CHOICE" The pictures are beautiful and say so much. I would like to nationally call attention to what is happening here in Oklahoma and show that people like us CAN make a difference. I truly hope you check into these pictures and choose to air them. They are so beautiful. This could be an amazing story.
