Women in Oklahoma are waiting to see whether or not their Governor will veto or sign a bill which outright bans abortions and jails abortion providers in their State.
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.
Obviously the bill is unconstitutional, that goes without saying. But how much money and time is going to be spent fighting this?
Honestly, I don’t know anything about the Governor of Oklahoma, and so my speculating on whether or not she will veto it would be utterly pointless. However, it’s not like Oklahoma has a decent track record when it comes to how the Government treats women.
I mean, apparently, you can perform oral sex on someone if they are unconscious, because consent means not screaming and saying no, right?
And ladies, if you don’t like being raped by cops, maybe you shouldn’t commit a traffic violation, amirite?
Honestly, I feel for the people of Oklahoma right now.
