Not surprising HB 1595, which creates the "statistcal abortion reporting act", passed in the House 93 Ayes to 4 Nays votes. This bill is bad because the reporting requirements, which would be listed on a state run website, is so detailed that you could actually identify in rural towns who had an abortion.
Why would our legislators (minus Rep. Ryan Kiesel, Rep. Jeannie McDaniel, Rep. Mike Shelton and Rep. Al McAffrey) want to add more pain and anguish to an already difficult decision? So do-gooders in the community could hunt down the woman who decided to terminate an unwanted pregnancy and paint a red A on her door? Not to mention this bill has a fiscal impact report attached to it to the tune of more than $280,000!
When Oklahoma is struggling with a $900 million budget shortfall, tack on another $280,000 so we can see this website!
Now is the time to start calling your Senators and asking for them to vote no to hearing the bill in committee.
Do not assume that you won't be heard, please, please, please call...
