Oklahoma lawmakers took advantage of the extremist momentum threatening to overturn Roe v. Wade by passing the most restrictive abortion law yet. Governor Kevin Stitt made all abortions after fertilization illegal. Despite the leaked draft opinion, Roe v. Wade hasn't been overturned yet — and yet, Oklahoma is one of the many states who have found a way to go around the courts. Conservatives have no right to ban abortion at conception. That means that next to no one (including victims of sexual assault, incest, at-risk parents, and more) will have input in their reproductive health.
We need everyone in the country fighting for Oklahoma citizens' right to their own decisions regarding their reproductive health — the passage of this bill only promises to encourage even more radical anti-choice legislation throughout the country.

The president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of America, Alex McGill-Johnson, previously said that if the law was passed "Oklahoma [would] be the first state in the country to completely outlaw abortion – even while Roe still stands." McGill-Johnson went on to say that "what little abortion access is left in the state [would] be gone, and the crisis faced by Oklahoma patients and those that depend on access in the state [would] worsen."
Roe v. Wade has been the established law of the land for decades. Republicans cannot be allowed to simply rewrite constitutional rights based on their own radical ideologies whenever they feel like it.
