Conservative lawmakers have proposed a raft of extreme bills, which the governor has already promised to sign.
"The Oklahoma Legislature started its 2022 session this week with a slew of anti-abortion bills, which isn’t uncommon. “This is my 12th year in the legislature now, and it feels like every year we go through this,” said Oklahoma House Minority Leader Emily Virgin (D). The bills coming to the floor range from extreme to downright dystopian, including one that would create a state-run database of some pregnant people in the state.
"Senate Bill 1167, filed by state Sen. George Burns (R). Titled the Every Mother Matters Act, or EMMA, would establish a government database for pregnant women looking to get abortions in Oklahoma. Each pregnant person will call a hotline and be connected with a “pre-abortion resource” assistant and be assigned a “unique identifying number” in the database. "Many women facing unexpected pregnancies turn to abortion because they feel like they have no choice. We want to make sure they have an opportunity to connect with medical, financial and other resources that they may not know about,” Burns said in the press statement."
Sounds good enough.....problem is...there are already policies in place that do exactly everything he is talking about -- without putting anyone in a special government database for pregnant people..and without wasting more money to do it..save that money for all of those medical, housing and financial resources you claim to care so much about...even tho, all of those resources are things he wants to cut and defund....Obviously this isn't about trying to provide care to people, its about control....All of that Conservative small government talk goes straight out the window when an opportunity to police a woman's pussy comes up....
