In a paramount legislative decision concerning individual rights in the womb, Oklahoma has made abortion a felonious crime.
Governor Kevin Stitt signed Senate Bill 612, criminalizing abortion in circumstances other than a medical emergency necessary to save the life of the mother. Penalties would include up to a decade in prison and a fine of up to $100,000.
According to the Daily Wire, a 40% increase in Texans reportedly crossing state lines to have abortions has followed the Lonestar state’s recent restriction on abortions. In a move reflecting the importance of state sovereignty, the Oklahoma legislation will take effect in 90 days.
“We want to outlaw abortion in the state of Oklahoma,” said Stitt.
The bill stipulates that criminal charges will be brought against the parties involved in performing abortions. This decision could devastate the facilities profiting off the harvesting of human tissue with the tax dollars of millions of unsupportive blue and white collar citizens, terminating more than 2,300 pregnancies per day.
The legislation prohibits the use of abortion as a contraceptive, with intent to de-incentivize parents to avoid responsibility of their child, however boundaries concerning the classification of a “medical emergency” are yet to be seen without specification.
The Oklahoma restrictions come amidst the discovery of the bodies of five babies victim to late-term abortion, labeled “medical waste,” from an abortion facility in Washington D.C. Questions were raised regarding the children’s ability to live outside the womb, and members of the GOP have demanded an investigation.
The invalidation of the lives of those innocent in their most vulnerable state has produced a trajectory in which lawmakers out of California now push to allow the murder of a newborn child after birth.
