Oklahoma has tried to pass some of the worst abortion bills in the country. Their newest project involves putting up signs in women’s restrooms telling them not to have abortions. The government would be requiring restaurants, hospitals, nursing homes, and many other places to put up and pay for these ridiculous signs.
The signs would read:
“There are many public and private agencies willing and able to help you carry your child to term and assist you and your child after your child is born, whether you choose to keep your child or to place him or her for adoption. The State of Oklahoma strongly urges you to contact them if you are pregnant.”
This is so fucking patronizing! Most of us know what our options are if we get pregnant. These stupid signs would cost $2 million for businesses to put up. Also, they are going up in fucking nursing homes! Grandma doesn’t need any pregnancy advice, people.
There was one victory this week for women in Oklahoma. They tossed out a law requiring doctors at abortion clinics to have admitting privileges at local hospitals.
Oklahoma keeps trying to pass these ridiculous restrictions to have an “abortion-free” society. With the Supreme Court case of Roe v. Wade, legal abortions are in the entire country. The state can’t ban them.
