Another Unconstitutional Act
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party statement on House Bill 1182 passing in the Oklahoma House:
Oklahoma’s Super-Republican-Majority Legislature continues to play politics and pandering to their conservative base. Once again, they are wasting taxpayers’ money with unconstitutional measures. HB1182, which revokes a doctor’s license who performs an abortion, puts an undue burden on women’s protected rights. It’s nothing more than another veiled distraction to pump up voter support in an election year. Furthermore – this bill is an attack on women’s federally protected reproductive rights and a grave misuse of power.
The Oklahoma Democratic Party proposes that Republicans focus their time and energy on protecting Oklahoma’s vulnerable children by expanding Medicaid, funding schools, improving our educational system, and staying out of a private issue between a woman and her doctor.
The Oklahoma Democratic Party calls on voters to contact your State Senators and demand them to vote against HB1182. Tell your Senator to stay out of women’s private healthcare issues, stop wasting taxpayers’ money with unconstitutional bills, and instead do the job of protecting our Constitution they took an oath to uphold.
