Legislators in Oklahoma have taken a stand for life by approving a bill that would outlaw abortion throughout the entire state. According to Breitbart, the bill would make it a felony for a doctor to kill an unborn child.
In addition to outlawing abortion, the bill also calls for any doctor who performs an abortion to be stripped of their medical license.
Republican state senator, Nathan Dahm, said that “this is our proper function, to protect life.” Dahm authored the bill. The Oklahoma House of Representatives then approved the bill. It now goes to the desk of Governor Mary Fallin to be signed into law.
Planned Parenthood and other anti-life groups are up in arms over Oklahoma’s decision and some groups are threatening to sue to retain their access to abortions.
