Attorney General Gets One Thing Right
OKLAHOMA CITY—FEBRUARY 10 2022 – A.G. O’Connor doesn’t believe that the government should interfere between a patient and their physician regarding healthcare decisions. That is exactly what he said about doctors being allowed to prescribe the unproven use of non-FDA-approved drugs ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID.
“Maybe O’Connor is on to something. Healthcare decisions should be between a patient and their physician? What a concept,” stated Alicia Andrews, Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair. “Stitt and Republicans should take their cue from O’Connor’s statement and apply it to all healthcare decisions, especially ones between a woman and her doctor when it comes to family planning.
“The hypocrisy of Republicans wanting freedoms and ‘my body, my decision’ mocking mask mandates, while at the same time wanting total control of a woman’s body is frightening. They should apply their same logic across the board,” Andrews continued.
“This ‘new’ argument suddenly discovered by Republicans to ramp up the Big Lie further disrespects women and their inalienable rights to protect their decisions between them and their doctors. Suppose Stitt, O’Connor, and their party truly believe that the government should stay out of healthcare decisions. In that case, this should also apply to the numerous unconstitutional laws passed that restrict women’s access to safe and affordable healthcare. We can no longer allow Republicans to continue to think that they are the exception to all rules,” concluded Andrews
