Oklahoma House Votes to Protect Life

OKLAHOMA CITY – A bill that seeks to ban abortions in instances of certain birth defects passed out of the House this afternoon with a vote of 67 to 16.

The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2017, House Bill 1549, seeks to prohibit abortion solely because the unborn child has been diagnosed with either Down syndrome or a genetic abnormality or has the potential for a genetic abnormality. The bill would also hold physicians who violate this measure liable.

“Life is a gift from God,” said Rep. George Faught, R-Muskogee. “Today, I am thankful that the members of the House of Representatives chose to protect that gift.”

HB1549 will now be sent to the Oklahoma Senate.

  The House today voted to pass the Jon Echols ‘Real ID’ compromise bill (HB1465). It advanced on nearly a straight party line  vote.   What we begin to see is a Democrat party trying one more time to evoke a parliamentary ‘hunger strike’. they refuse to support Republican measures of any type unless and until there is a vote to hike oil production taxes.  Never mind that a few weeks ago the Republicans largely supported Dem. Eric Procto […]

ObamaCare was passed by the Democrats on Christmas Eve 2009, so we could find out what was in the bill. It has been unpopular with the American people ever since. But since then it has become the ObamaCare entitlement. Now, despite all the people who lost their doctors. And all the people who lost their insurance coverage. Twenty million other people

The Republicans are selling a health care plan with no mandates that you buy it. And they won’t turn you down if you have a pre-existing condition. So why would you pay for health care before you need it? Here’s Dr. Krauthammer on that: It’s not just Donald Trump who ran on retaining this new, yes, entitlement. Everyone did. But it’s
