Today’s action by the Oklahoma legislature is the most extreme effort to undo these fundamental rights we have seen to date,” 언론 비서가 말했다. “게다가, it adopts Texas’ absurd plan to allow private citizens to sue their neighbors for providing reproductive health care and helping women to exercise their constitutional rights.

This is part of a growing effort by ultra MAGA officials across the country to roll back the freedoms we should not take for granted in this country,” Jean-Pierre added, referencing a Biden administration term playing off of former President Trump’s 2016 슬로건, “미국을 다시 위대하게.”

Oklahomans are sending a strong message that all unborn children and their mothers in the Sooner State deserve urgent protection from the brutality of abortion,” Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement Thursday. “Science shows beyond the shadow of a doubt that unborn babies are human beings, with beating hearts by six weeks and the ability to feel pain by 15 weeks.

Oklahoma’s strong pro-life protections could save as many as 3,800 lives a year,” Dannenfelser added. “In contrast to the Biden-Harris administration that gives abortionists a platform to push a radical agenda, Governor Stitt and the legislature are standing up for the will of the people who overwhelmingly want to protect their most vulnerable citizens.
