(Free the States) Oklahomans for Life (OFL) has been the primary opposition to the Abolition of Abortion in Oklahoma Act since the bill was first introduced in 2016. They’ve given Senators anti-abolition talking points and provided strategies for denying the Abolition of Abortion in Oklahoma Act a hearing. Abolitionists were able to obtain copies of OFL’s anti-abolition strategy letters in 2016 and 2019.

- Watch Lauinger converse with abolitionists about his 2016 anti-abolition letter here.
There were certainly more letters and meetings where Lauinger worked to prevent abortion’s immediate abolition, but those are the letters abolitionists were able to obtain. It is no secret that OFL is the primary opposition to this bill. Lauinger won’t deny it if asked.
Continuing their work to prevent the Abolition of Abortion Act from passing, Question 3 of the Oklahomans for Life 2020 candidate questionnaire requests candidates’ opposition to the Abolition of Abortion in Oklahoma Act, by asking them whether they will “oppose attempts to repeal existing pro-life laws, even by entities purporting to oppose abortion, except as part of a comprehensive restructuring of pro-life laws designed both to withstand court scrutiny and to save the lives of unborn children as supported by Oklahomans for Life.”
This is a reference to the Abolition of Abortion in Oklahoma Act, which repeals abortion regulation – because it has to. One of the ways pro-life politicians and lobbyists have tried to scare people away from supporting abortion’s immediate abolition is by pointing out that the Abolition of Abortion in Oklahoma Act repeals all of their “hard-fought pro-life victories.” What they don’t mention is that these pro-life victories have to be repealed in order for abortion to be abolished.
