For those of you who haven’t heard, Senate Bill 1433, otherwise known as the Personhood Act, passed the Oklahoma Senate on Wednesday, 34-8. The Personhood Act seeks to define life at conception and extend the same rights to the “unborn” child as a… bornchild, I guess?
Apparently the rights extended to children don’t add up to much in Oklahoma, according to Democratic Senator Jim Wilson of Tahlequah, who pointed out that if a woman needed to take her uninsured child to an emergency room for an ear ache, she would need to shell out $600.
I wrote this for OK4RJ after SB 1433 passed the OK Senate on Wednesday. The lolz are the one of the only things getting me through this legislative session!
