At this very moment, researchers around the world – including in the United States – are working to develop fully autonomous war machines: killer robots. This is not science fiction. It is a real and powerful threat to humanity.
Killer robots would act without human reason and compassion in the battlefield. These weapons would destroy the last safeguard against human rights abuse – a human’s ability to use common sense, reason, and compassion and to choose not to fire, or to disobey illegal orders.
Sign the petition, and tell President Obama to stop the threat of killer robots now, before it’s too late.
