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.
