Up until the state’s proposed bill banning abortion at conception, it was going to be a tough choice as to the worst law the legislature had passed this session.
There’s nothing funny about House Bill 4327, authored by Rep. Wendi Stearman, R-Collinsville, that Stitt is expected to sign. It should also be noted here that even Fox News disagrees with Kevin’s assessment of the number of Oklahomans who favor banning abortion, with 50 percent of respondents favoring a ban after six weeks with that percentage rising to 54 percent after six weeks.That’s close to an even split even according to a poll conducted by one of the most conservative media companies in the country.
But facts have never stopped Kevin and he’s not starting now, referring to Oklahoma’s sovereign tribes as “super liberal” and stammering when confronted with a Pew Research Center poll from 2014 that found about the same thing Fox did years later.
“Well, some of those, uh, your, uh, some of those different facts or those newspapers that you’re quoting are not what we find with the people in Oklahoma,” Kevin so eloquently retorted.
Yeah, that’s what happens when you only talk to people who pay you, stupid.
Anyway, on to the laugh so we don’t cry portion of CFN. Here are a look at two of the other moronic laws your legislature has proposed or foisted upon you this session:
Senate Bill 1100 means birth certificates will have to remain with male or female markers only. Nonbinary designations are strictly prohibited. This was a hot issue amongst babies fresh from the womb in recent years, so it’s a good thing the Republicans showed them who was in charge from the get-go.
Senate Bill 1470, also known as the “Students’ Religious Belief Protection Act,” would allow for lawsuits to the tune of $10,000 “when a public school promotes positions in opposition to closely
held religious beliefs of the student,” whatever that means. Oh, and that money has to come out of those hefty teacher salaries they receive. Noncompliance may result in a permanent ban on teaching in the state. It’s kind of unbelievable that there’s a teacher shortage or that profitable companies keep flying over the state with their opportunities, huh?
Fortunately, the regular legislative session is ending, which means those of us who don’t always breathe through our mouths can sigh in relief until they strike again.
