Led by President Barack Obama, liberals have been attempting to force their pro-abortion agenda onto a largely pro-life society for years.
Most recently, progressives have defended the likes of Planned Parenthood, even when it was revealed that the abortion giant had been harvesting parts of aborted babies for cash.
But these efforts were countered on Thursday in Oklahoma as pro-life lawmakers passed two anti-abortion bills that would have a massive effect on the protection of life in the state.
The state Senate passed a bill that would make performing an abortion a felony punishable by up to three years in prison, according to KWTV.
The bill also would restrict any physician who performs an abortion from obtaining or renewing a license to practice medicine in Oklahoma.
The measure, labeled the “first of its kind in the nation” by the Center for Reproductive Rights, passed by a vote of 33-12.
Republican Sen. Nathan Dahm led the push to pass the bill, saying that he hoped it could eventually lead to overturning Roe v. Wade, the controversial, landmark Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion across the country.
Oklahoma’s anti-abortion bill now heads to Gov. Mary Fallin’s desk, whose spokesman said that she would not be making any comments about it until her staff had time to review it.
Listen to USA Radio’s coverage of the bill’s passage here:
Meanwhile, the state’s House of Representatives also passed pro-life legislation that required the state Department of Health to develop informational material “for the purpose of achieving an abortion-free society.”
Representatives voted 69-15 for the measure, known as “The Humanity of the Unborn Child Act,” which now goes to the Senate.
The bill, sponsored by Republican Rep. Ann Coody of Lawton, would authorize the state health department to create a public information campaign about the developmental stages of a fetus and abortion alternatives. It would also allow for the creation of an optional instructional program for students.
However, the House did not approve any funding for the measure, which Coody said was necessary for its implementation.
Obama and his progressive band of pro-aborts are undoubtedly furious over the pro-life stance taken by Oklahoma lawmakers, but these measures are necessary to protect our unborn and their right to life.
