Oklahoma could execute doctors for performing life-saving abortions if GOP lawmaker gets his way

Post by Guest on Wed Feb 01, 2017 5:22 pm

A New bill proposed in the Oklahoma legislature would define the medical procedure for any pregnancy termination as criminal murder. The law also doesn’t provide any accommodations for a mother whose life and health is at risk if there are complications from the pregnancy.

The bill comes from Republican state Sen. Joseph Silk, who is known for a series of anti-choice antics at the Oklahoma state capitol while lobbying for a prohibition on abortion in the state’s Constitution. He’s affiliated with a group Abolish Human Abortion, known for harassing women who volunteer at clinics, hanging huge banners over overpasses and standing outside of polling places with signs purporting to show fetuses.

There is little in the bill other than it would name the medical procedure “murder.” The law would charge the doctors that perform the abortions with first-degree murder, but it doesn’t outline if any charges would be filed for the woman seeking the procedure. Punishments for women could be the same as criminal prosecution for an accessory to the crime. That would mean if a woman is dying as a result of a pregnancy with complications and has an abortion she could be thrown in jail along with the doctor who refused to let her die. First-degree murder in Oklahoma is punishable by the death penalty, so the doctors would be put to death under the so-called pro-life law.

Religious idiots trying to enforce their beliefs again onto others.
Soon they will be making wanking, blow jobs etc illegal as it will be deemed murder.

Surprised

SOMEHOW, I don't really see such an idiotic proposal even getting through the legislature, let alone even becoming law, too soon..

Even if the state government tried to support such a radical move, how long would it be before Federal law overrode it..


As for automatically sentencing the doctor to dearh, if such a law were enacted -- that doesn't happen that quick --  imagine all of the appeals dragging on for 10 or 20 years.

And all of those dead-and-dying mothers cluttering up the ststem as well..         What a Face

It just astounds me such people are voted in power by people, like this idiot.

What makes me cringe, is they claim to fear sharia law and yet want to instigate religious law

The hypocrisy.

I know, right? It's getting to the place where, after any wet dream, you will have to support and educate the little buggers til they are 18.
