The Oklahoma Legislature is to be commended, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said today as a bill passed 73-16 that would protect most babies from abortion. Gov. Kevin Stitt is expected to sign the bill.

“As the nation awaits the formal release of the Supreme Court decision that could overturn Roe v. Wade, Oklahoma wasted no time ensuring it is ready for that day,” Father Pavone said. ”I look forward to my next opportunity to travel to the Sooner State so I can thank these legislators and governor personally for standing up so courageously for life.”

The bill would protect from abortion all babies except those who were conceived in rape and those whose mothers’ lives’ are imperiled by the pregnancy.
