Unborn Child-As-Person Bill Goes To House Floor
A House bill that would expand the legal definition of a person to include an unborn child is headed to the floor for a vote after passage by the Public Health Committee on vote of 8 to 3.
|Rep. Steve Vaughan|
The measure declares that “All persons are created free and have inalienable rights.”
“I believe that a majority of Oklahomans believe in the sanctity of life, but we in the Legislature have not yet been bold enough to take a stand to say when life starts,” Vaughan, R-Ponca City, said.
“Now that this legislation has passed out of committee, lawmakers will have an opportunity to take that stance."
