Editorial: Abortion abolition is important

When state lawmakers work to abolish abortion in Oklahoma, the liberal media and many Democrats complain that they are wasting their time by concentrating on pro-life legislation that will undoubtedly be overturned by the liberal Oklahoma Supreme Court.

Yet you don’t hear one word of criticism over the passage of a bill by Sen Ervin Yen, R-Oklahoma City, that prohibits teenagers from using commercial tanning beds.

Are the tanning habits of state teenagers more vital than the lives of thousands of unborn babies?

Very few bills in the Legislature can directly save lives but the courageous bills by conservative Christians could eventually stop the American Holocaust in Oklahoma by banning abortion.

The courts are only one third of the federal government and state government. They do not get the final say, especially over the will of the people.

Oklahomans don’t want babies killed in their mothers’ wombs. Every pro-life bill since the Republicans took control of the House and Senate has passed with bipartisan support (there are pro-life Democrats in Oklahoma).

Nine judges should not have the power of life and death over babies, especially since abortion has never been approved in Oklahoma or in the United States by a vote of the people. It has only the approval of activist, liberal judges who have seized power not granted to them by the U.S. or Oklahoma constitutions.

Americans are guaranteed by God and our laws “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Killing an innocent baby in the womb violates everything this country should stand for.

Shame on lawmakers who waste time on tanning bed bans while babies die in this state every day.
