US state of Oklahoma brings ‘pro-life’ abortion law

TRT World says the governor of Oklahoma state has signed one of most restrictive abortion laws in the United States, hours after a leaked Supreme Court draft ruling indicated the imminent end to nationwide legal abortion.

“I am proud to sign SB 1503, the Oklahoma Heartbeat Act into law,” Kevin Stitt said on his Twitter account on Tuesday. 

“I want Oklahoma to be the most pro-life state in the country because I represent all four million Oklahomans who overwhelmingly want to protect the unborn.”

The bill bans abortions after approximately six weeks. It includes exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for cases of rape or incest.

Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
