OK: You Will Have Your Rapists Baby

GOP’s Policy on Women

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R-did you really need to ask?) signed into law the nation’s strictest abortion ban, making Oklahoma the first state to effectively end all abortion access, in anticipation of Patron Saint of Blastocysts Sammy Alito’s ruling overturning women’s rights.

The law takes effect immediately, and prohibits nearly all abortions from the point of fertilization. You are flowers, ladies, at least in Oklahoma. Fertility Clinics are gonna be in a heap of trouble. And if they implant a dozen embryos, there better be a dozen babies or it is mass murder, amirite?

Similar to the Abortion Ban from Texas —America’s Lab for Bad Policy— the Oklahoma law will be enforced by bounty hunters, er, private citizens, who can sue abortion clinics or anyone else who helps women to get an abortion.

After Texas enacted its six-week ban, many women traveled to Oklahoma for care, and so now pretty much every woman seeking medical care is going to be under suspicion and will have to travel many more miles, possibly thousands. This will impact poor women and women of color the most, so you know, working as designed.

    Isn’t it a bit early? I mean, passing this law now – that’s blatantly signing into law a measure that is still, until the SCOTUS delivers its verdict, illegal under the current laws. Isn’t it?

    Mexico legalized abortion so those Texass women can always go there if the need arises (it’s cheaper than most places), or they can come out west to the ocean states where it remains legal (for now). I’ve heard the Okrahoma ban doesn’t allow abortion for ectopic pregnancy which is usually a fatal condition for the mom…

    • Well that’s great if a) you have the money to travel and b) you have the time to do so and c) you don’t get nabbed by the slave catchers bounty hunters in the process.

      You know we’re going to start seeing police-manned checkpoints on highways leading to and from states where it’s legal in states where it’s not.

      Welcome to the Republic of Gilead.

        Of course police will be armored up and manning those check points, grade schools have become far too scarey for them.

    A lot of Oklahoma still consists of Indian tribal lands, which are exempt from some state laws. It’s been suggested that abortion clinics could still operate in those lands, if the tribes agreed. Maybe they can make a little money serving as an “abortion oasis” in the midst of the fundamentalist hellscape.

    The thing is, somewhere between a third and a half of fertilized eggs don’t implant in the uterus and are part of the woman’s next period. So, they’ve literally made having sex a crime
