Three Anti-Choice Measures Heading to Governor Stitt's Desk
WICHITA, KS — The Oklahoma Legislature gave final passage to three anti-abortion measures today.
- HB2441 (prohibit abortion after the detection of a fetal cardiac activity)
- HB1904 (require persons performing abortions to be state certified in obstetrics and gynecology)
- HB1102 (add performing an abortion the list of “unprofessional conduct” by a doctor)
“Again, the Oklahoma legislature is focused on radical and unconstitutional legislation that will only be thrown out of the courts. I would rather they spend their time on restoring access to health care to Oklahomans than wasting time on restricting the ability of people to get safe and quality health care,” said Julie Burkhart founder and CEO of Trust Women.
