Under the bill, doctors who perform an abortion could face three years in prison, and lose their medical license. There are no exceptions for rape or incest — only the mother's life. Oklahoma lawmakers passed the measure with no debate. The only doctor in the Senate — a Republican — voted no, calling it 'insane.' "


How do the legislators of the state of Oklahoma expect to get this past the supreme Court? Didn't Roe v Wade settle this?
I guess the state has so much money they can afford to pass bills designed to be in court for years.

I wonder how this will play out on the national political stage.

Now this question will be asked of all candidates, GOP and dembs. "How do you feel about the Oklahoma abortion ban and making Doctors felons if they perform an abortion"

If this is the rebirth of the political litmus test for the coming elections....it won't bode well for the conservatives and they have sown the seeds of their destruction yet once again.

Great. More bronze age legislation from the right wing religious nutters running the state, and our country. Time to legislate a theocracy too, I suppose, since it's right on the heels of those "religious freedom" laws we've all read about. Have we hired an Inquisitor yet? Time for a witch hunt, maybe?

If they did this just for a litmus test that's terrible.

I'm willing to bet this is the precursor to another "transgender" type deal where the media runs it into the ground until people are sick and tired of hearing about it and then move onto the next manufactured rhetoric.

First it was Muslims (and still is), then it was PC (and still is), then it was the rebel flag and racism, then it was gay marriage, then it was planned parenthood, then it was transgender bathrooms, now it will be abortion.

Notice the pattern of playing on the Conservative Rights "morals". They are using their prejudices against the entire country. People will eat it up too.

Sad times we live in.

It's always been a litmus test for the Conservative Right. The GOP had backed off a bit but now with Trump up in the polls the Right Wing is feeling powerful enough to dredge it up once again with a move to overturn Roe v. Wade... imo dumbass stratagy that always blows up in the Republican's face.

They really only believe in smaller government when it affects their money. They are heavy handed in passing laws and legislation when it comes to American people's personal freedom though. The whole "smaller" government is a farce.

Did you know that Oklahoma has the largest number of executions per capita in the United States? Ironic that they would ban "murder" when they legally murder more people than anyone else.

Not all Republicans are "pro-life" - stop lumping us all in the same category. Aren't your sort ALWAYS bitching about lumping people into groups?

If you NOTICED, the OP even put, the only Doctor was a Republican and voted NO

40% of Republicans are Pro-Choice

Ya know. Maybe they should just do something simple...such as tie all babies tubes when they are born,and for free remove them when they get 18 years of age. same for male babies. it coudnt be any different than what they are doing with this new law. This whole issue has started a worldwide uproar apparently. Next stop genocide.

Yeah? Well they're not executing life before it has a chance. Those that are being executed had their chance and decided to commit crimes that put them in that position.

All well and good but the way this countries been working the parties speak for the people. The Republican Party has become the face of the anti-choice movement.

Perhaps if time you and this supposed 60% thought about who is speaking for them in their legislatures.


That aside, this won't survive any appeals process, not that that won't take years.

The individual states should be able to decide these things for themselves. That's the entire point of "United States of America", as opposed to, say, "Federal Government of America". The point is that more localized laws make for less tyranny.
