Oklahoma Governor Signs Three Laws to Effectively Ban Abortion in the State

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R)
On Monday, Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) signed three bills into law that together ban virtually all abortions in the state.

One law makes it a homicide to abort any baby with a detectable heartbeat. Another makes it “unprofessional conduct” to abort a baby for any reason other than to save the mother's life. The third bans anyone other than certified OB/GYNs from performing abortions.

All three laws are scheduled to take effect on November 1, but the first two are likely to face legal challenges before that date. While they might not be immediately enforceable, they will add to the list of court cases that have the potential to challenge the legal precedent of Roe v. Wade.

The third law is more likely to take effect since its purpose is to ensure a pregnant mother's safety rather than limit abortion directly.
