Oklahoma Senate Passes Personhood Act, Effectively Banning All Abortions
By Stephen D. Foster Jr.
The Republican dominated Oklahoma Senate has overwhelmingly passed Senate Bill 1433, also known as the Personhood Act, by a vote of 34-8.
The bill would define life as beginning at conception, effectively banning all abortions and many forms of contraception. The bill would also ban women from getting an abortion if they are raped because there are no exceptions in it. In other words, Oklahoma Republicans are granting rapists more power over their victims. Not only will a woman have to deal with the pain and trauma of being raped, she’ll be forced by state government to remain pregnant for nine agonizing months, only to endure more pain while giving birth.
Oh, fuck you Oklahoma. FUCK YOU SO MUCH.
