GOP-led states moving forward on Texas-style abortion restriction laws

An Oklahoma state lawmaker plans to introduce a Texas-style abortion restriction bill that would allow individuals to sue doctors over abortion procedures.

“The pro-life citizens of Oklahoma should have the ability to help hold these doctors accountable,” Rep. Sean Roberts (R-OK) said in a press release.

“Individual citizens are an extremely important part of making sure that we are protecting the lives of the unborn. This legislation puts principle into action, and I am going to fight extremely hard to get it passed during the upcoming session,” he added.

Roberts also expressed his concern about a growing number of Texans who are now crossing the border to seek abortions in his state.

Oklahoma is not the only state working to pass stricter laws against abortions. South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem also announced plans to pass a ban on abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
