Oklahoma legislators this week passed a pro-life bill in the house and senate, and the legislation is now on the desk of Gov. Kevin Stitt.
Sen. Nathan Dahm, the sponsor of the bill, says it would charge abortionists with a felony, and up to 10 years in prison, and thousands of dollars in fines.
“The only exception in the bill,” Dahm advises, “is for the life of the mother but other than that it is from conception and, like I said, those penalties are on the abortionists.”
Sen. Dham, who is also running for the U.S. Senate, tells AFN that science shows a woman’s pregnancy begins at conception. It is the responsibility of the government, he insists, to provide protection at that point for the innocent, unborn child.
“We have a responsibility,” he insists, “to protect innocent life from being extinguished.”
The vow to protect innocent life, the state lawmaker says, can be found in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and Oklahoma’s own constitution that dates back to 1907.
