OK Passes Near-Total Abortion Ban, Planned Parenthood Mad

April 7, 2022

After 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, abortion giant Planned Parenthood complained that “our freedoms” are under “attack.”

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 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.”

The law would also make performing an abortion a “felony punishable by $100,000,” imprisonment for up to 10 years, or both, according to the bill’s text. Republican state Rep. Jim Olsen emphasized that “the penalties are for the doctor, not for the woman.” If Stitt signs the bill, the law will take effect on August 26.

“These legislators have continued their relentless attacks on our freedoms,” mourned Emily Wales, interim president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes. Because to these Moloch-worshipping leftists, freedom means the right to murder their inconvenient unborn children.
