Stopping abortion is not ‘silly’
State Sen. Ervin Yen, R-Oklahoma City, thinks a law protecting unborn babies is “silly” and not worth consideration by the Oklahoma Legislature.
Yen, who says he is “pro-life” but he really isn’t, wouldn’t matter much except that he is chairman of the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services. As chairman, he is in a powerful position to kill pro-life legislation.
Yen just killed House Bill 1549, the “Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2017,” which would ban abortion for unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome or other genetic disorders.
The bill passed the House by a 67-16 vote but Yen won’t send it to a floor vote in the Senate.
