For years, self-proclaimed “pro-life” politicians have skated by, barely lifting a finger to live up to their campaign promises.
But with the abortion up-to-birth law passing in New York, and similar legislation being introduced in a number of other states, the line in the sand has been drawn.
And one RINO politician just betrayed everyone with this one insane action.
A bill was introduced in Oklahoma, that would define abortion as murder, and treat it as such, in the courts of law.
The bill (S.13) was then brought to the Oklahoma Senate Health and Human Services Committee, headed by Republican chairman Jason Smalley (R-Stroud).
However, in a twist of events, Smalley rejected the bill as “unconstitutional” and won’t allow it to be heard by the Senate Committee.
Now he is facing backlash from grassroots pro-lifers for shooting down the bill.
Oklahoma News Channel 4 reports:
A bill seeking to criminalize abortion in Oklahoma will not be brought up for a committee vote, a Senate committee leader confirmed to News 4.
Senate Bill 13, authored by Sen. Joseph Silk, R-Broken Bow would reclassify abortion as murder. It was assigned to the Oklahoma Senate Health and Human Services Committee, chaired by Sen. Jason Smalley, R-Stroud.
Sen. Smalley described the bill, as written, as “extremely unconstitutional.”
“I’m extremely pro-life. I support the efforts. I support the cause, and I do support the author. I just do not support this kind of method,” Smalley told News 4 on Saturday. “We have other bills. There’s a Personhood Bill. We could look at the Heartbeat Bill. I mean, there’s other pro-life movement bills that we could tank up and discuss and continue that movement towards I think what we all want, but this is not the method nor the bill to do that.”
Speaking with News 4 over the phone Saturday, Sen. Silk challenged criticism of his bill.
“They just don’t like it, because it’s kind of out of the norm and they just don’t know what to do with it.” Silk said.
He said he’s sought advice from law firms across the country.
“Some people think it will hold up in court but even if there’s a negative outcome in court, we’re reserving the executive branch the authority to nullify a negative court opinion on it,” he said. “If politics were operating like they should on a moral and ethical constitutional basis, we would hear Senate Bill 13. It would probably pass committee.”
Lukewarm lifetime politicians like Jason Smalley aren’t voting based on a moral or ethical basis.
But the worst part is Smalley’s defense of his actions, saying the Bill is “unconstitutional.”
He claims the courts will strike it down so he doesn’t have to take action on a controversial bill.
One of the government’s central roles is to defend the right to life for all its citizens.
And Senate Bill 13 would be a step in that direction by defending the rights of innocent babies in the womb.
This action is just a microcosm of the spinelessness that is running rampant in the Republican Party.
The Republican Party gained control of Congress in 2014 largely running as pro-life, and yet nothing was done in defense of the unborn like defunding Planned Parenthood or passing the Pain Capable Bill banning late-term abortions.
But with the pro-abortion Democrats on the move in states like New York, Americans are growing tired of the excuses from fake pro-life politicians who fail to stand up to the radical Abortion Lobby.
And that could spell doom for these politicians looking to hold their seats for years to come.
Should abortion be outlawed in the U.S.?
