OKLAHOMA CITY – One day after lawmakers passed a bill that would make performing an abortion a felony, Gov. Mary Fallin decided to veto the measure.

On Thursday, the Oklahoma Legislature has passed a bill that would make performing an abortion a felony punishable by up to three years in prison.

The bill would restrict any physician who performs an abortion from obtaining or renewing a license to practice medicine in Oklahoma.

On Friday, Gov. Mary Fallin vetoed the measure, saying the bill was “vague” and “would not withstand a criminal constitutional legal challenge.”

'Ya think? For the record, it appears that not all Republicans in Oklahoma are nuts. I just found one who isn't, but I doubt if she has a future in the party now.

I tend to think she has her eye on a federal office.

Well, since she would like Roe v Wade re-examined I think not. At least not at this time.

Trump's VP, her name has been brought up before. Or one of the cabinet appointments. This sort of decision conditions her for that.

I hadn't heard that. Thanks.

I doubt he'll end up choosing her anyway, the name...

Trump/Fallin probably won't work for Trump. Just my guess.

May God have mercy on her soul, and may she repent of her murderous behavior.
