OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma lawmakers have moved to effectively ban abortion in their state by making it a felony for doctors to perform the procedure, an effort the bill's sponsor said Thursday is aimed at ultimately overturning the U.S. Supreme Court's 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

The bill , which abortion rights group Center for Reproductive Rights says is the first of its kind in the nation, also would restrict any physician who performs an abortion from obtaining or renewing a license to practice medicine in Oklahoma.

It passed 33-12 Thursday with no discussion or debate; a handful of Republicans joined with Democrats in voting against the bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Nathan Dahm.

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, an anti-abortion Republican, has until Wednesday to sign the bill into law or veto it. Spokesman Michael McNutt said she also could also allow the bill to become law "without approval" after the five-day period has elapsed. He also said she will withhold comment until her staff has time to review it.

Dahm made it clear that he hopes his bill could lead to overturning Roe v. Wade.



There will be women who are determined to get an abortion and they will now be forced to go underground to do it, making it even worse than a sterile environment in a hospital in case something goes wrong.  Abortion is a heinous procedure in itself, but it's become so common that people will continue to do it and they will find a way.  Perhaps they'll just cross state lines to get it done, but many of them are the poorest of the poor who basically use abortion as a form of birth control (further proof you can't fix stupid).  I do however believe that the PEOPLE's will should be done under state laws and laws decided by them and not the Feds.  I believe all late term abortions should be illegal everywhere and that the only way to get one is if the mother's life is threatened if she gives birth.

Oklahoma lawmakers call for president's impeachment, file religious-accommodation bill over bathroom directive

Also late Thursday, state lawmakers filed Senate Concurrent Resolution 43 asking Oklahoma’s U.S. House delegation to “file articles of impeachment against the President of the United States, the Attorney General of the United States, the Secretary of Education and any other federal official liable to impeachment who has exceeded his or her constitutional authority.”


Oklahoma’s SCR 43 calls for articles of impeachment to be “based upon the grounds that the Constitution of the United States does not grant the executive branch of the federal government any authority whatsoever over the public education system, nor over the use of restrooms or other facilities thereof.”
