Mirror, mirror, on the wall, which state is the most pious of them all? Oklahoma.
It’s not signed into law, yet, but the measure passed 33-12 without a single debate. The bill will also make performing an abortion a felony, a penalty of up to three years in prison.
I don’t have to tell you how unconstitutional this bill is. It’s downright disgusting.
Governor Mary Fallin has signed some pretty messed up bills in the past: 72 hour waiting period prior to performing abortions, common method of second-trimester abortions, prohibiting abortions after 20 weeks if the baby is deemed viable and can live outside the womb, preventing standard health insurance from covering abortions, and requiring physicians to be present when an abortion drug is taken.
What is it with Republicans and women’s rights? The last I checked, health care decisions were made by the patient and their health care provider, not by inept, bigoted, evil and twisted politicians who lack medical training.
This has to be the most archaic and asinine piece of legislation from her yet. How many more steps do we have to take backwards before we go forward again? Yes, let’s ban abortion so more and more kids can enter the broken and needs revising foster care system to be abandoned, abused and neglected. Yes, let’s say ‘to hell’ to a woman who needs that abortion to live even though the dying fetus is killing her. Yes, let’s take away a woman’s right to choose even though she was raped.
“Life begins at conception”? Well, your god is cruel for killing mine. Your god allowed me to grow a bond, see it on an ultrasound and then miscarry. Now, if “life begins at conception”, who do you answer to if your god is the one that takes it away? Oh, “it’s god’s will” at that point.
These are blatant attacks based on the grounds of Christianity.
