Earlier this week, the legislature of Oklahoma overwhelmingly passed a bill that would have made the state the first in the nation to ban abortion after it was made legal. The measure would have made it a felony for doctors to perform abortions and would have stripped abortion doctors of their licenses.
But according to The Oklahoman, Republican governor Mary Fallin has vetoed the bill, calling it ineffective.
“The bill is so ambiguous and so vague that doctors cannot be certain what medical circumstances would be considered ‘necessary to preserve the life of the mother,'" Falin said. “The absence of any definition, analysis or medical standard renders this exception vague, indefinite and vulnerable to subjective interpretation and application."
She added that it while she thinks Roe v. Wade needs to be addressed, she felt this bill would not accomplish its goal. She said appointing the right Supreme Court justice would give pro-life advocates a better shot.
