A bill that would have classified abortion as first-degree murder will not move forward in Oklahoma.
The bill, introduced by Oklahoma State Senator Joe Silk, said, “A person commits murder in the first degree when that person performs an abortion.”
“No person shall perform or induce or attempt to perform or induce an abortion after conception,” the bill, S.B. 1118, said. That includes the “prescription of any instrument, medicine, drug or any other substance or device to intentionally kill an unborn human being.”
