Democrats are still reeling over the upcoming verdict from the Supreme Court on Roe v. Wade.
If the leaked document is to be believed, the highest court is about to overturn Roe. Which will give states the power to pass their own pro-choice or pro-life laws.
And soon after this news hit the country, one red state just signed a major ban into law.
From AP News:
Oklahoma’s Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a Texas-style abortion ban on Tuesday that prohibits abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy, part of a nationwide push in GOP-led states hopeful that the conservative U.S. Supreme Court will uphold new restrictions.
“I want Oklahoma to be the most pro-life state in the country,” Stitt tweeted after signing the bill.
Look out, Texas—Oklahoma is giving you a run for your money! The state’s Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law that bans abortions after six weeks.
This comes soon after a draft opinion from the Supreme Court was leaked to the public. If the draft opinion holds true, it will give states the power to decide abortion laws.
It will knock down Roe v. Wade, which federalized the controversial practice.
Democrats have been foaming out the mouth ever since the draft was leaked. Republicans are outraged that someone within the highest court would violate procedure to leak this document.
But it doesn’t change the fact that the court might very well overturn Roe, a major victory for pro-life Americans.
Democrats seem to think this will hurt Republicans, going into the midterms. They are so out of touch with America, they think most voters support their pro-choice views.
But this news out of OK proves that Republicans are in no danger from the Supreme Court ruling. This will, in fact, give Republicans even more momentum going into the elections.
Because, if this ruling holds true, they can go to voters and promise them that they’ll outlaw abortion in their state—if they give Republicans a majority.
Democrats are reeling. Because even on the left, there are pro-life voters. If they go overboard on this issue (and they already have), they will alienate even more voters.
It’s a lose-lose prospect for the left. But Republicans stand to win, no matter what.
Don’t be surprised to see other states pass similar laws in the near future.
- Oklahoma governor signed a bill banning abortions after six weeks.
- This comes as a leaked draft suggests the SCOTUS may overturn Roe.
- Texas previously passed a similar law last year.
