Oklahoma enforces law prohibiting abortion after conception

It will actually become the US state, which has more restricted regulations on spontaneous termination of pregnancy (IVG). Oklahoma Parliament passed a law on Thursday, May 19, prohibiting all abortions from being conceived. To come into effect, the text must now be signed by state Governor Kevin Stitt. He had already said he would put his signature on any law that would impose more restrictions on abortions by elected Republicans.

Inspired by a similar law passed by Texas in September, the law opens the door to lawsuits filed by ordinary citizens against people suspected of having performed abortions. The definition of abortion, according to the text, however, is not included “Morning use after pills, prescription, delivery or sale, or any form of contraception or emergency contraception”.

The referendum came as the right to abortion in the United States was threatened by the Supreme Court. Politics50 years after its historic decision to protect abortion, it seems poised to go backwards.

Kamala Harris immediately condemned the decision of the Oklahoma Legislature “The latest in a series of blatant attacks on women by elected officials”. The US Vice President has called on his fellow citizens to elect leaders who will defend the right to abortion. At the local, state and federal levels. “It was never so urgent”He wrote on Twitter.

The parenthood organization that plans to protect abortion in the United States has announced it will do so “Prosecute Oklahoma”. “This ban, along with all other sanctions that this state has passed over the past month, must be lifted.”He continues on Twitter.

On May 3, Governor Kevin Stitt announced that he had already signed into law a law banning abortion after six weeks of pregnancy. “I want Oklahoma to be the most favorable state for life in the country.”, He said, using the sacred expression of anti-abortion activists. This conservative stronghold in the southern United States has welcomed thousands of Texan women who have been wanting to have an abortion for months.
