The Republican dominated Oklahoma Senate has overwhelmingly passed Senate Bill 1433, also known as the Personhood Act, by a vote of 34-8.

The bill would define life as beginning at conception, effectively banning all abortions and many forms of contraception. The bill would also ban women from getting an abortion if they are raped because there are no exceptions in it.

MadgeUK This is what happens when religion takes a bigger part in public life, as has been suggested here by Baroness Varsi!

Jimmy I wonder how many Oklahoma senators would be willing to risk their lives to save a batch of fertilized eggs that were in danger of being destroyed.
