Oklahoma Senate Passes Bill Outlawing Abortion of Any Baby with Vital Signs
[Lifesite News] Lawmakers in Oklahoma moved a step closer to banning the vast majority of abortions last week via legislation that would take effect as soon as the most basic signs of prenatal life can be measured.
The Oklahoma Senate voted 36-8 on Thursday in favor of a SB 1859, which would ban abortion once either a fetal heartbeat or fetal brain waves can be detected, the Associated Press reported. If put into effect, the measure would ban abortions starting around week six of pregnancy. The bill does not contain exceptions for rape, incest, or a mother’s health.
“A physician found to be in violation of this section shall be prohibited from obtaining or renewing a license to practice medicine in this state,” the bill declares. “The State Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision shall revoke the license of a medical doctor who is found to have violated the provision of this section.”
“Doctors take an oath to protect life, so this will also hold them accountable for that oath by taking away the licenses of any who violate this law,” declared Republican state Sen. Paul Scott.
