Oklahoma legislature criminalizes abortion
Governor Mary Fallin hasn’t announced if she’ll sign it, but if she does the state should be prepared to spend lots of taxpayer dollars defending itself.
According to the language of the bill, anyone who is found to have performed an abortion — except in instances to save the life of the mother — will be found guilty of a felony and can receive up to three years in prison…
The governor has not decided whether she will sign the bill, according to her spokesperson Michael McNutt.
Once Fallin has the bill she has five business days to decide if she will approve the legislation. If she doesn’t sign or veto the bill, it automatically becomes law, according to McNutt.
