The nightmarish debate brought on by a leaked draft of a SCOTUS decision to end Roe v. Wade has caused the entire country to erupt with such maddening hysteria, it’s about time states start doing something about it.
Left-wing abortion radicals have terrorized many parts of the country, even stalking Supreme Court justices at their private homes, as a result of this decision and many Americans are beginning to sour on the entire pro-choice movement.
Turns out, there is a moderate position one can take on the abortion situation without spiraling down into a pit of demonic leftism.
Unfortunately for us, the left is not one for moderation and will instead exact the most annoying and dangerous attacks against anyone willing to stand up for the unborn.
But now GOP states are starting to take action, Oklahoma being the most recent.
HB4327 passed the Oklahoma legislature on Thursday which outlaws the abortion procedure and defines life at the time of conception.
The bill notably includes provisions for rape, incest, and the life of the mother.
The measure passed 73-16 in the state’s legislature. Next, the bill heads to Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt’s desk and will go into effect immediately upon signing.
House Bill 4327 makes almost all abortions illegal from the point of fertilization, which is defined as “the fusion of a human spermatozoon with a human ovum.”
The legislation is similar to a Texas bill that provides for civilian enforcement rather than being enforced by the state. It incorporates this civil action protocol by allowing “[a]ny person, other than the state, its political subdivisions, and any officer or employee of a state or local governmental entity in this state” to bring a civil action against anyone who:
Performs or induces an abortion in violation of this act;
Knowingly engages in conduct that aids or abets the performance or inducement of an abortion, including paying for or reimbursing the costs of an abortion through insurance or otherwise, if the abortion is performed or induced in violation of this act, regardless of whether the person knew or should have known that the abortion would be performed or induced in violation of this act; or
Intends to engage in the conduct described by paragraph 1 or 2 of this subsection.
If signed, the law would be the strictest limitation on abortion in the United States.
Enforcement will occur exclusively through civil action.
