"Under the bill, doctors who perform an abortion could face three years in prison, and lose their medical license. There are no exceptions for rape or incest — only the mother's life. Oklahoma lawmakers passed the measure with no debate. The only doctor in the Senate — a Republican — voted no, calling it 'insane.' "
Oklahoma introduces measure to impeach Obama over bathroom rights
Oklahoma Republicans want President Obama impeached, even though it’s futile
No, states can't actually impeach U.S. presidents. But Oklahoma Republican lawmakers are urging Congress to take up their cause. Reuters reports the Republican-denominated state legislature filed a measure Thursday calling for Obama's impeachment over the administration's recent recommendations that public schools accommodate transgender students in bathrooms.
Lawmakers argue the president overstepped his constitutional authority with that directive. The White House directive was "bibically wrong," state Rep. John Bennett (R) said in a statement, according to Reuters, adding that it violated state's sovereignty.
So for the second time this week, Oklahoma lawmakers will be doing something with almost zero practical purpose -- but make a statement in doing it.
One day after lawmakers passed a bill that would make performing an abortion a felony, Gov. Mary Fallin decided to veto the measure.
On Friday, Gov. Mary Fallin vetoed the measure saying the bill was "vague" and "would not withstand a criminal constitutional legal challenge.".
...Fallin wrote "In fact, the most direct path to a re-examination of The United States Supreme Court's ruling in Roe v Wade is the appointment of a conservative, pro-life justice to the United States Supreme Court." .
