While Americans are celebrating a new Oklahoma law that bans abortions and protects women and unborn children, Joe Biden is celebrating abortion — which he erroneously calls a “Constitutional right.”
As LifeNews reported this morning, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill to ban aboritons that will save approximately 4,000 babies from abortion every year.
“I promised Oklahomans that I would sign every pro-life bill that hit my desk, and that’s what we’re doing here today,” the governor said. “We want Oklahoma to be the most pro-life state in the country. We want to outlaw abortion in the state of Oklahoma.”
But that’s not the kind of message Biden can get behind — and he released a statement via his White House press secretary Jen Psaki condemning Stitt and the new bill and saying abortion is a right even though no such right exists in the Constitution.
“This unconstitutional attack on women’s rights is just the latest and one of the most extreme state laws signed into law to date,” the statement says. “Protecting the right recognized in Roe v. Wade continues to be a priority for the Biden-Harris Administration, and we call on Congress to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would shut down these attacks and codify this long-recognized, constitutional right.”

“Make no mistake: the actions today in Oklahoma are a part of a disturbing national trend attacking women’s rights and the Biden Administration will continue to stand with women in Oklahoma and across the country in the fight to defend their freedom to make their own choices about their futures,” said Psaki’s statement for Biden.
The pro-life bill bans all abortions in Oklahoma except if the mother’s life is at risk. It also creates felony charges for abortionists who kill unborn babies in violation of the ban, which includes up to 10 years in prison and a $100,000 fine.
About 4,000 unborn babies are aborted every year in Oklahoma, according to state health statistics; but abortion industry workers say they have been seeing more women come from Texas for abortions since the Texas heartbeat law went into effect in September.
Biden will likely be disappointed again because this isn’t the only pro-life bill Oklahoma has approved.
Oklahoma House lawmakers declared Jan. 22 to be a Day of Tears for aborted babies and encouraged flags to be lowered to half-staff in a special resolution last week.
And the legislature is advancing a Texas-style abortion ban with a private enforcement.
All across the country, state lawmakers have introduced hundreds of pro-life bills this year in anticipation that the Supreme Court may overturn Roe. Since 1973, states have been forced to legalize abortions without limits up to viability, and more than 63.5 million unborn babies have been killed.
The Guttmacher Institute estimates 26 states “are certain or likely to ban abortions” if the Supreme Court gets rid of Roe. Researchers estimated that abortion numbers would drop by about 120,000 in the first year and potentially even more in subsequent years if the high court allows states to ban abortions again.
