Oklahoma Bans Abortion: Here’s The Story

Pro-Life Supporters

(THeLastPatriotNews.com) – Oklahoma just became the latest red state to outlaw abortion in almost every circumstance other than “to save the life of a pregnant woman in a medical emergency.”

Further, those who perform an abortion n Oklahoma will find themselves in serious criminal trouble that could land them in prison.

As Breitbart notes in “Oklahoma Legislature Passes Near-Total Abortion Ban”:

“Oklahoma’s Republican-led State Legislature passed a law on Tuesday which would ban abortion in nearly every circumstance and punish physicians who perform abortions with heavy fines, jail time, or both.

“The Oklahoma House voted 70-14 to pass SB 612, sending it to Gov. Kevin Stitt (R), who has previously vowed to sign “every piece of pro-life legislation” that comes across his desk, the New York Times reported. The bill bans all abortions’ except to save the life of a pregnant woman in a medical emergency.’ The bill defines a medical emergency as ‘a pregnant woman whose life is endangered by a physical disorder, physical illness or physical injury including a life-endangering physical condition caused by or arising from the pregnancy itself.'” [emphasis added]

Further, the Oklahoma law differentiated itself from those recently passed in blue states like Colorado.

In stark contrast to a law recently passed in Colorado, which declares that unborn children at all stages have no rights and permits abortions at all stages of pregnancy, Oklahoma’s bill says that the “terms’ abortion’ and ‘unborn child’ shall have the same meaning.” [emphasis added]
