Oklahoma Governor Vetoes Pro-Life Bill

Gov. Brad Henry has vetoed legislation that would have prohibited the state funding of abortion.

Rep. Lance Cargill, speaker of the House, said the governor’s action on Wednesday is not in line with the beliefs of Oklahomans who value the sanctity of life.

“It’s especially sad that on a day when the U.S. Supreme Court is advancing the cause of life, Oklahoma is moving backwards — thanks to the governor,” he said. “The idea that taxpayer dollars could be used to perform abortions is terrible.”
