Oklahoma Close To Declaring An Embryo A Person

Posted by | February 17, 2012 16:06 | Filed under: Top Stories

The Oklahoma Senate has cleared the “personhood” bill which would give an embryo individual rights from the moment of conception.  It now goes to the Republican House and a Republican governor.

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, a Republican, has not publicly said whether she will sign the bill, but last year she signed into law a series of bills aimed at restricting the reproductive health choices of women.

As written, the new bill defines an unborn child as having “the rights, privileges, and immunities available to other persons, citizens, and residents” from the “moment of conception until birth at every stage of biological development.”
