PUTTING SCIENCE, HEALTH, & TECHNOLOGY AT THE FOREFRONT OF AMERICAN POLITICS
TRANSHUMANIST BILL OF RIGHTS
Presented to the United States Capitol on December 14, 2015 by Zoltan Istvan, founder and US Presidential candidate of the Transhumanist Party
Preamble: Whereas science and technology are now radically changing human beings and may also create future forms of
advanced sapient and sentient life, transhumanists establish this TRANSHUMANIST BILL OF RIGHTS to help guide and enact
sensible policies in the pursuit of life, liberty, security of person, and happiness.
Article 1. Human beings, sentient artificial intelligences, cyborgs, and other advanced sapient life forms are entitled to
universal rights of ending involuntary suffering, making personhood improvements, and achieving an indefinite lifespan via
science and technology.
Article 2. Under penalty of law, no cultural, ethnic, or religious perspectives influencing government policy can impede life
extension science, the health of the public, or the possible maximum amount of life hours citizens possess.
Article 3. Human beings, sentient artificial intelligences, cyborgs, and other advanced sapient life forms agree to uphold
morphological freedom—the right to do with one’s physical attributes or intelligence (dead, alive, conscious, or unconscious)
whatever one wants so long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else.
Article 4. Human beings, sentient artificial intelligences, cyborgs, and other advanced sapient life forms will take every
reasonable precaution to prevent existential risk, including those of rogue artificial intelligence, asteroids, plagues, weapons of
mass destruction, bioterrorism, war, and global warming, among others.
Article 5. All nations and their governments will take all reasonable measures to embrace and fund space travel, not only for
the spirit of adventure and to gain knowledge by exploring the universe, but as an ultimate safeguard to its citizens and
transhumanity should planet Earth become uninhabitable or be destroyed.
Article 6. Involuntary aging shall be classified as a disease. All nations and their governments will actively seek to dramatically
extend the lives and improve the health of its citizens by offering them scientific and medical technologies to overcome
