Oklahoma Signs Most Restrictive Abortion Ban

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt

“Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt signed the nation’s strictest abortion ban into law on Wednesday, banning the procedure from the moment of conception. House Bill 4327 went into effect immediately after Stitt signed it on Wednesday. It is considered the strictest abortion law in the nation because it restricts physicians from performing abortions at any point in the pregnancy except for cases of rape, incest or a medical emergency. ‘I promised Oklahomans that as governor, I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk, and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,’ Stitt said in a statement. ‘That is what I believe, and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe. If other states want to pass different laws, that is their right, but in Oklahoma, we will always stand up for life.’ The new law also allows citizens to file civil lawsuits for up to $10,000 against anyone who performs an abortion or assists a woman in obtaining one.”
