Oklahoma Governor Vetoes The Bill That Would've Made Abortion A Felony
Mary Fallin criticized the bill for an absence of "analysis or medical standard."By Samantha Crook | May 20, 2016
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin on Friday vetoed a bill that would've banned abortions in the state.
Senate Bill 1552 passed in the Oklahoma state Senate on Thursday. It would've made it a felony for doctors to perform abortions — contradicting the landmark federal case legalizing abortion, Roe v. Wade.
In her press statement, Fallin was referred to as "the most pro-life governor in the nation," but she called the Senate bill "vague." She criticized the bill for an absence of "analysis or medical standard."
