Oklahoma City, OK – 2/16/2012 — Personhood USA is applauding Wednesday’s passage of a personhood-compliant bill through the Oklahoma Senate. The Oklahoma Personhood Act was approved by a vote of 34 to 8. Sponsored by Tulsa Senator Brian Crain, SB1433 recognizes the biological fact that life begins at conception and affords all unborn children “at every stage of development all the rights, privileges, and immunities available to other persons, citizens, and residents of this state.”
The measure defines the terms “unborn child” and “unborn children” to “include all unborn children or the offspring of human beings from the moment of conception until birth at every stage of biological development.” It now heads to the State House where it is expected to pass.
“Personhood has received broad-based support from Oklahoma citizens, lawmakers, and pro-life organizations alike,” said Personhood USA President Keith Mason. “What we’re seeing across America is a significant shift and a reinvigorated pro-life movement fighting to protect the right to life of every human being, at every age.” Read More→
