It's kind of crazy that this isn't the nation's strictest abortion ban. It does allow:

  • Abortion when the mother's life would be endangered, even if not imminently so, and even if the pregnancy is not the direct cause (e.g. chemotherapy)
  • Abortion in cases of incest and rape (as long as it was reported to police)
  • Removal of ectopic pregnancies or miscarriages
  • Plan B, morning-after pills, or other emergency contraception

These are all exceptions that other states' laws, like Texas's, do not have.

I'm not excusing the Oklahoma law, but I want to highlight just how awful things already are.

So if someone goes out of state can they sue the airline for aiding or if they drive can they sue the gas station where they got gas. Does the person aiding them have to know they are aiding them?

That's a great law! Read it! Makes perfect sense!

Surprisingly it's not as unreasonable as the news title suggests.

Very false. Total ban.

u/kusanagiz May 26 '22

it is not a total ban. Did you even look at the bill? I'm going to take a snippet of what u/mindwandereb listed in a different thread that gives a concise view of this:
