13 Responses to New Oklahoma Bill: Men Must Give Permission For Abortions

  1. The evidentiary issues are staggering.

    What’s to prevent me from filling out blank, “Atteststion of Paternity and Consent to Abortion” forms?

    In vitro paternity tests?

    Oklahomans are smarter than this.

    • Perhaps SOME are but then there is “the anti-abortion movement, which believes federal dollars are paying for terminations.” “Federal funding does not go toward performing abortions in the U.S., except in cases of rape, incest or if the life of the mother is at risk.”
      Facts? We don’t need no stinkin’ facts….We have our biases!

  2. In my opinion, the Oklahoma men(and many women) wee influenced by trends originating in the Old West and the cowboyism of a male-dominated regime which was gaining ground in a gun-slinging winning-of-the-West mentality back in the day.
    One might also note the mid-course correction the Oklahoma legislators made by couching the proposed law in terms of “both” the man and the woman—otherwise, they would have proceeded along a trajectory towards an abomination similar to “Male-Guardianship” as exists in Saudi Arabia like a dark cloud that can’t be penetrated by the light of Enlightenment offered by Baha’u’llah’s bold statement that Women and Men are equal in their capacities and that the two of them are as the two wings of “the bird of humanity”.
    As for “Male-Guardianship”, this is an ingrained cultural feature not only in The Kingdom, but is fiercely enforced in nearby Yemen. (Fortunately, Oman, the U.A.E., Bahrain, and Qatar are far more sane and relaxed in their attitudes about women. Although in rural areas in Oman, there are lingering vestiges requiring certain places of commerce and social gatherings to be off-limits to women. The current Sultan nonetheless has done a lot to ensure fuller access to opportunities for women starting from the 60’s, and conditions are improving on a regular basis).

    Anyway, the attitudes towards women in Saudi Arabia, and the Stone-Age conservatives in America and in particular, Oklahoma, are perfectly in synch with Donald’s primitive instincts re: women.

  3. From now on these troglodytes must obtain permission to ejaculate from the women unfortunately enough to be part of their lives.

  4. Oh look… Oklahoma has confirmed that slavery and the desire to reintroduce slavery never really went away…
    Now the unethical politicians of the state want to institute sexual slavery.
    That’s where a man can get you pregnant, then deny you the right to an abortion.
    Because you’re a “Host”… for HIS offspring.
    And you have to keep it… irrespective of your feelings or needs… and act as it’s host whether you want to or not.

    Effectively you’re making women into “Breeders”.

    You people make me sick.

    • Here’s the rider that should be added:
      “If the father of the fetus refuses to give consent to the procedure, he must assume full financial responsibility of the prenatal health of mother and fetus, and assume full financial responsibility for the upbringing of any child or children born from their union.”
      But, you can guarantee that won’t happen.

  5. I got paid 104000 bucks previous year by doing an online job a­­n­­d I was able to do it by w­o­r­k­i­n­g part-time f­­o­­r several hours a day. I followed a money making model I found online and I am amazed that I was able to earn so much extra income. It’s user-friendly and I am just so grateful that i discovered it.

  6. I’ve sometimes wondered how in the hell that Bernie Sanders ever won Oklahoma during the Democratic primaries. Did he promise to legalize chastity belts or something?
