Oklahoma and Texas are now in a league of their own for having the strictest laws prohibiting abortion in yet another Constitutional pressure test against Roe v. Wade and the constitution of the current U.S. Supreme Court.

There are no winners in an argument about abortion access, hence a half-century of taking the same matter to court repeatedly only for it to climb a few rungs at best and then be tossed off the ladder completely.

But what can be compared are statements on bodily autonomy, which Republicans pretend to uphold until it comes to matters of abortion, even after rape or incest.

After the Supreme Court struck down vaccine mandates in February, Kevin said this:

“The Supreme Court’s decision to strike down President Biden’s unlawful vaccine mandates for businesses is an important victory for the individual freedom of Oklahomans and every citizen of this great nation … From the beginning I have maintained that the vaccine should be a personal choice,” Stitt wrote in a press release.

Less than two months later, he said this of the abortion bill he signed into law: “I know this bill will be challenged immediately by liberal activists from the coasts who always seem to want to come in and dictate and mandate and challenge our way of life here in the state of Oklahoma.”

We’re at an impasse where one crowd thinks that Oklahomans should never have the ability to terminate an unwanted pregnancy for any reason, because, as Oklahoma House author Rep. Jim Olsen (R-Roland) put it:

“I want to thank the Lord for Him helping us with this and His heart being shown in this, that we value life because our God in Heaven values life,” Olsen said.

Olsen also signed onto the state bill which prohibited healthcare workers from being mandated from being vaccinated.

So who’s pro-life and supports small government again?
