Persons Against Personhood in Oklahoma

The Personhood Bill (SB 1433) in Oklahoma claims that "the life of each human being begins at conception" and that based on this every "unborn child at every stage of development" would have "all the rights, privileges, and immunities available to other persons, citizens, and residents of this state." If this bill makes its way through the Oklahoma legislature and ultimately becomes law, the consequences (both intended and unintended) will be catastrophic. Doctors would not be able to offer in vitro fertilization for families hoping to have children; families not hoping to have children would have limited birth control options, and life-threatening pregnancies would be forcefully carried to term or worse.
The only addendum made in the name of female reproductive rights is that the bill shall not "be interpreted as creating a cause of action against a woman for indirectly harming her unborn child by failing to properly care for herself or by failing to follow any particular program of prenatal care." This, coupled with the inability of women to receive abortions, would mean that the only legal recourse a woman would have in cases of unwanted or physically/emotionally dangerous pregnancies would be to literally harm herself.

The people of Oklahoma do not want this bill to become law. Listen to your constituents. This bill is a threat to all Oklahoma women and their families.

Stop the Personhood Bill from moving forward

The Personhood Bill (SB 1433) in Oklahoma claims that "the life of each human being begins at conception" and that based on this every "unborn child at every stage of development" would have "all the rights, privileges, and immunities available to other persons, citizens, and residents of this state."
