Oklahoma Senate Passes Personhood Act

Just a quick tidbit that I thought was worth mentioning:

Oklahoma’s state senate has passed a “personhood” bill.

OKLAHOMA CITY (February 16, 2012)–The Oklahoma Senate overwhelmingly approved an anti-abortion “personhood” bill Wednesday that declares life begins at conception.

The vote upset doctors who fear the proposed law will jeopardize reproductive medicine.

Where’d they get those doctors, Planned Barrenhood?

The bill now heads to the House, where it is also expected to pass.

Republican Gov. Mary Fallin typically won’t comment on pending legislation, but she has described herself as strongly “pro-life.”

The bill would provide embryos and fetuses with “all the rights privileges, and immunities” of other citizens.

Republican Sen. Brian Crain says it’s modeled after a 1986 Missouri law that was later determined by the U.S. Supreme Court to be constitutional.
