On the Oklahoma Supreme Court abortion ruling: A Commentary

It is a peculiar thing to have a Supreme Court in Oklahoma that is so out of tune with the Constitution and citizens that they would rule a law unconstitutional for having the very exception for the life of the mother, which they claim makes it unconstitutional.

Every bill they have struck down already had an exception for the life of the mother. The reality is that this court continues to make the same mistake of the [U.S. Supreme Court] in 1973 by only applying the right to life to one person involved in the abortion.

The unborn person has committed no crime and should not be convicted and sentenced to death by inept judges.

They also continue, with each radical left ruling, to make themselves incompetent and out of touch with the state they serve.

They are, however, making judicial reform more and more of a necessity and the Legislature will reform the courts to be what they should have been all along.

Note: On Wednesday, May 31, the Oklahoma State Supreme Court ruled that Senate Bill 1503 and House Bill 4327 were unconstitutional. A veteran educator, Senator Bullard was a co-author of House Bill 4327, one of the measures the state Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional in a controversial ruling issued on Wednesday, May 31. He sent this statement to CapitolBeatOK.com, an independent, non-partisan and locally-managed news organization based in Oklahoma City.
