Target: Mary Fallin, Governor of Oklahoma
Goal: Don’t revoke abortion doctors’ rights to practice by banning them from renewing their medical licenses.
It could soon be illegal for abortion doctors to obtain or renew their medical licenses. Oklahoma legislation implementing this ban is currently awaiting the signature of the governor. Demand that Governor Fallin refrain from signing this bill and protect the women of Oklahoma.
The anti-abortion bill makes it a felony for anybody to perform an abortion, severely restricting women’s options. Women would still able to obtain abortions for medical reasons, but the bill does not protect victims of rape or incest. While the bill has been marketed as a way of protecting life, it does not take into account the lives of pregnant women who may instead seek out dangerous illegal abortions.
Abortion is legal in America. Therefore, this bill goes against the United States Constitution. Sign below and protect women’s rights.
Dear Governor Fallin,
A controversial bill has passed barring physicians from performing abortions. This leaves women without access to this very important form of healthcare. We demand that you veto this bill and take a stand for women’s rights.
Abortions are performed to benefit women’s physical and emotional health. While the bill protects women’s rights to an abortion for medical reasons, it does not protect victims of rape and incest. This puts many women in a desperate situation and threatens their overall well-being.
Abortion was illegal once. During that time, an estimated 5,000 women died per year in their attempts to procure unsafe illegal abortions. This bill will not protect life and will only serve to endanger women. Veto this bill and protect women’s rights.
