Oklahoma House passes resolution directing public officials to stop abortion
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
The Oklahoma House of Representatives has passed a resolution directing public officials to exercise their authority to stop abortion.
HR 1004 passed the Oklahoma House May 8 by a voice vote. The resolution directs "every public official in Oklahoma to exercise their authority to stop murder of unborn children by abortion."
The resolution also calls for Oklahoma judges and Oklahoma Supreme Court justices to not interfere with the legislature's "right to clarify Oklahoma criminal law regarding abortion".
The resolution would merely guide the policy of officials and is not a law. The resolution comes as Gov. Mary Fallin puts pressure on lawmakers to pass a budget that generates revenue.
