An Oklahoma state lawmaker plans to introduce a bill similar to the Texas heartbeat law this month that would ban abortions in his state. KOCO News 5 reports state Rep. Sean Roberts, R-Hominy, said his legislation will make it illegal to abort unborn babies in Oklahoma except if the mother’s life is at risk.*
*It is important to note that the “mother’s life is at risk theory/excuse has been thoroughly debunked. There’s never a need to abort an infant because the mother’s life is at risk. A doctor can always treat a mother with no intent to harm her unborn baby.
Similar to the Texas law, Roberts said his bill includes a private enforcement mechanism that would allow individuals to sue abortionists and those who help them abort unborn babies in elective abortions.
“When it comes to fighting for the lives of the unborn, we must be willing to do whatever it takes,” Roberts said in a statement. “This legislation is critical, and it must be passed this session to stem the tide of Texans seeking abortions in our state.”
The Oklahoma legislative session begins Feb. 7, and Roberts said he is prepared to fight to get his bill passed.
“The pro-life citizens of Oklahoma should have the ability to help hold these doctors accountable,” he said. “This legislation puts principle into action and I am going to fight extremely hard to get it passed during the upcoming session.”
