Oklahoma's legislature passes a bill banning nearly all abortions
Oklahoma's legislature passed a bill Thursday that prohibits nearly all abortions beginning at fertilization.
Vice President Kamala Harris called it "one of the most extreme abortion bans in the country."
"It's outrageous and it's just the latest in a series of extreme laws around the country," Harris said in a virtual meeting with abortion providers.
If Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signs the bill, the legislation would go into effect immediately. Stitt has pledged to make Oklahoma "the most pro-life state in the country."
