Mary “Comstock” Fallin

April 20, 2011

Governor Mary Fallin, first female Governor of this state, signed 2 anti-abortion bills into law today. They are strict. From the Tulsa World article:

The first bill is called the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” and is based on the premise that a fetus can experience pain after 20 weeks of gestation. It includes an exemption for abortions performed when the life of the mother is at risk or if there is a risk of physical impairment of a “major bodily function.”

This bill also seeks prison time for doctors who perform abortion after 20 weeks. If you were a doctor in Oklahoma, would you just stop offering abortion services altogether considering the irrational vitriol aimed at your practices? I wouldn’t either, but I’m afraid many more will, as many already have. Oklahoma has 6 abortion providers. 6. In the whole state. And that was in 2008. Oklahoma women already have an extremely difficult time finding safe, private birth control services. 96% of Oklahoma counties have NO abortion provider.

And, as if we didn’t have enough anti-choice legislation (SEE), now we have more. And now we have a woman telling all the other women in the state that they don’t know what’s best for them. What a self-hating, SCUMbag. What do all these anti-choice politicians want? To make abortion totally illegal? Um, yes:

“Abortion is currently legal in Oklahoma, but I believe a majority of Oklahomans would vote to eliminate elective abortions if they were given the chance to do so,” Rep. Dennis Johnson (R-Duncan) said.

All this ignorance grossing you out? Me too.
