Oklahoma Gov Signs Law Making Committing Abortion a Felony

On April 12, Oklahoma Gov Kevin Stitt signed into law legislation banning most abortions. Abortionists who violate the law can be charged with a felony.

The only exception allowed by the new law is if the mother's life is at risk. Additionally, the child's mother will not face these legal penalties under this law. Only those who commit the abortion can be charged.

Those found guilty of committing an abortion can be punished with up to 10 years in prison and a $100,000 fine.

“I promised Oklahomans that I would sign every pro-life bill that hits my desk and that’s what we’re doing today,” Stitt said at the signing ceremony. “As governor, I represent all 4 million Oklahomans, and they overwhelmingly support protecting life in the state of Oklahoma. We want Oklahoma to be the most pro-life state in the country. We want to outlaw abortion in the state of Oklahoma.”

Stitt continued, “Attorney General John O'Connor and I know this bill will be challenged immediately by liberal activists from the coast, who always seem to want to come in and dictate... our way of life here in the state of Oklahoma. The most important thing is to take a stand and protect the unborn...”

The new law is scheduled to take effect this summer, but it will likely be challenged long before then. Pro-life Oklahomans are hoping that the Supreme Court soon overturns Roe v. Wade in its upcoming Dobbs v. Jackson decision.
