Today, the Oklahoma legislature passed a law requiring restaurants, hospitals, public schools, and other buildings to purchase and post anti-abortion signs in their bathrooms “for the purpose of achieving an abortion-free society.” These signs will read:
There are many public and private agencies willing and able to help you carry your child to term and assist you and your child after your child is born, whether you choose to keep your child or to place him or her for adoption. The State of Oklahoma strongly urges you to contact them if you are pregnant.
“Yes, while you’re sitting to take a piss or drop a deuce, won’t you please think of the life of your unborn child? Thank you. Signed, Jesus.” Hilariously, most businesses are pissed that they’ll have to pay for the signs — the total cost will reach an estimated $2.3 million. The law states that places must have the signs up by 2018.
At least the Oklahoma State Supreme Court also spent a little time today throwing out a law requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges in local hospitals; basically, it was a bullshit law designed to prevent abortion doctors from having a place to perform their procedures. The U.S. Supreme Court struck down a similar Texas law earlier this year, but don’t get too cozy. Herr Trump has promised to appoint U.S. Supreme Court Justices who will help overturn Roe v. Wade.
Oh also, Ohio Governor John Kasich just signed a law banning abortions past the 20th week of pregnancy, a law which the ACLU calls “blatantly unconstitutional.”
Our site is also vehemently pro-choice, in case you didn’t know. In fact, we find kids so annoying that we support abortions all the way up to the 15th trimester.
