Okla. Overides Veto, Passes Bills To Restrict Abortions
Oklahoma has enacted two bills intended to restrict abortions, overriding the Governor's vetos. The bills become effective immediately.
Under one law, women must listen to an ultrasound and hear a spiel describing the fetus.
Oklahoma’s law goes further [than those in other states] requiring a doctor or technician to set up the monitor where the woman can see it and describe the heart, limbs and organs of the fetus. No exceptions are made for rape and incest victims.
The second law exempts doctors from malpractice suits for failing to tell prospective parents their fetus has birth defects.
Maybe Oklahama and Arizona can secede from the union. They deserve each other. We deserve better than both of them.
