Anti-Abortion Bill Filed in Oklahoma

Oklahoma State Representative Mike Reynolds (R) recently filed an abortion ‘trigger’ bill in the state legislature. The bill would restore Oklahoma’s laws prohibiting abortion in the state if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. “Given recent changes at the Supreme Court and expected retirements, there is a real chance the Court could revisit and reverse the Roe v. Wade decision,” said Reynolds in a release.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, 17 states have abortion trigger laws or pre-Roe bans on their books, including Oklahoma, while only seven states have laws protecting abortion rights. In introducing a trigger law, Rep. Reynolds is attempting to ensure that Oklahoma acts immediately to outlaw abortion if Roe is overturned, according to his press release.
