Oklahoma Senate Passes Bill to Slap Abortion Providers With Felony

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

The Oklahoma Senate on Thursday passed one of the nation's most restrictive abortion laws, which would make it a felony to perform the procedure and restrict any physician who does so from obtaining or renewing a medical license in the state.

The measure would effectively ban abortion altogether in Oklahoma, the state's ACLU chapter said. The Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) noted that the bill, Senate Bill (SB) 1552, was the first of its kind in the nation.

From the article:

'Oklahoma Senate on Thursday passed one of the nation's most restrictive abortion laws, which would make it a felony to perform the procedure and restrict any physician who does so from obtaining or renewing a medical license in the state....'

Not according to AP, who says that the felony categorization applies only to Doctors who perform the procedure.

Another insane uneducated Southern state.

Thinking women will tend to leave Oklahoma. This will lead to a downward spiral of less intelligent okies.

More less intelligent Okies? I didn't think it was possible. Think Jim Inhofe and the folks who keep voting him into office.

This is a partial list of the more advanced modern societies experiencing a gentle decline in population:

Germany, Japan, Russia, Italy, France, China, Holland and Spain.

Please correct or add to this partial list.

Keep on this path and Oklahoma women will eventually need temporary travel visas to visit outside the state. Hmm. Maybe an open border policy and complete economic and social equality would pay off by keeping educated and smart women home. Then Okies would gradually become smarter. Will it be in time to help reverse global climate syndrome? And huge fracking earthquakes? It's gonna be nip and tuck.

"You're doing fine, Oklahoma!!!!!" I suppose you care a lot about the extra children, once they are born, just like all the other fetus-preservers. Child care, education, anyone?????

It would be nice to be pro life and anti abortion without exception wholeheartedly, but a reasoning potential parent would want this to be in quite a different world. Given the present personal and global circumstances it's rather amazing humanity can still muster the courage to engage in sex at all.

Their governor vetoed the legislation:
