Governor Stitt Issues Statement Criticizing Oklahoma Supreme Court Opinion
Governor Kevin Stitt issued the following statement criticizing the Oklahoma Supreme Court's 6-3 opinion released today regarding abortion in the state of Oklahoma:
"I again wholeheartedly disagree with the Oklahoma Supreme Court’s use of activism to create a right to an abortion in Oklahoma. This court has once more over-involved itself in the state's democratic process, and has interceded to undo legislation created by the will of the people. I agree with Justice Rowe’s dissent, 'The issues presented in this matter are political questions, which are better resolved by the people via our democratic process.'"
"As governor, I will continue to do my part to fight to protect the lives of the unborn. From the moment life begins at conception, we have a responsibility to do everything we can to protect that baby's life and the life of the mother. Oklahoma will keep working to be the most pro-family state in the nation.”
