We are halfway through session. Bills had to be heard last week in order to continue, so we now know which bills we'll be fighting until the end of session. The good news first — your emails and calls worked. Two bills that would severely restrict access to safe and legal abortion were not heard on the floor and are done for this session.
Unfortunately, through last minute tactics, Sen. Greg Treat gutted the language of SB 195 and inserted even more damaging language. SB 195 initially aimed to ban abortion if Roe v. Wade were ever overturned. Now, the bill proposes that Oklahomans vote on whether to amend the Oklahoma Constitution to include language that prohibits the right to an abortion.
