The Oklahoma state legislature has passed a bill banning abortion “except to save the life of a pregnant woman in a medical emergency” and penalising healthcare personnel who perform or attempt to perform an abortion with fines and jail time.
1Republican state governor Kevin Stitt has promised to sign every bill limiting abortion.2 The bill will go into effect this summer, 90 days after the end of the current legislative session……..
So, the ‘land of the free’, is not as free as it was, especially for women who are pregnant.
It takes, at least 2 to become pregnant but nothing is being done to men, but is to the choice of women.
So, an act of minutes can lead to a lifetime for women. It was a long time fight to gain abortion through Roe-v-Wade, where the Supreme Court said it was ‘the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction’. But now in Oklahoma and some other States, it appears that they are against the Constitution on the whim of political intrusion and maybe some religious involvement.
The feelings of women are not being considered, surely they have rights of their own body. In some States not even rape is a consideration, perhaps women should abandon these States or even America itself and go to reside in other countries which respect the rights of women better.
