YES! Oklahoma House Recognizes Abortion As Murder

On Monday, the Oklahoma House of Representatives passed a resolution selecting abortion to be murder and criticizing the U.S. Supreme Court’s decisions allowing women to seek “elective abortions,” The Hill reports.

By Autumn Price

The resolution “carries no wait of law,” but states that the Supreme Court “overstepp[ed] its authority and jurisdiction” in landmark cases Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which “affirmed” a woman’s right to seek an abortion.

The resolution calls on public officials to “stop the murder of innocent unborn children by abortion,” and commands the Oklahoma Supreme Court to “stay out” of any future cases involving state abortion law.

Under Oklahoma state law, a woman who wishes to obtain an abortion must undergo counseling and wait 72 hours before getting  the procedure. Abortions performed after 20 weeks are banned unless the life of the mother is at risk.

Only five medical facilities in the state provide abortion services.
