Petition for full and immediate  pardon to President Obama: "This petition is to pardon Indiana resident Purvi Patel on the charges of feticide and neglect of a dependent related to a miscarriage that occurred shortly after her 20th week of pregnancy.

A conviction due to a miscarriage sets a very serious and dangerous precedent."
