Planned Parenthood will not like this one!
The Oklahoma House of Representatives just approved a senate bill last week that would revoke the medical license of any doctor who performs an abortion. The bill is now awaiting the signature of Republican Governor Mary Fallin, although she has not indicated yet whether or not she will sign it.
Doctors who perform abortions would be barred from obtaining or renewing their medical license, as the bill describes abortion as “unprofessional conduct”, reports the Washington Post. The bill does provide an exception when an abortion must be performed in the event of a miscarriage or to protect the life of the mother, but it does not include an exception for rape or incest.
Several Oklahoma House Democrats debated against the bill, saying it is unconstitutional, but they were outnumbered two-to-one.
In closing arguments, the bill’s House co-sponsor Rep. David Brumbaugh (R), suggested that the erosion of the family is to blame for poverty, welfare, drug addiction and other societal problems, quoting a friend who suggested that addressing one will resolve the other. “If we take care of the morality, God will take care of the economy,” he said.
The bill passed the House in a sweeping 59-to-9 vote, with 33 members abstaining from voting.
Abortion rights organizations are promising to challenge the bill if it is signed.
