We knew this was coming.

Oklahoma Pols Want a Database of Everyone Who Has an Abortion 

"An Oklahoma bill that would create a database of every person who obtained an abortion is one step closer to becoming law. 

 The so-called Oklahoma Right To Human Life Act, authored by state Rep. Kevin West, passed out of the Public Health Committee last week and moves to a full House vote next month. The bill would require the Oklahoma State Department of Health to create a database in which each patient is identified by a “unique patient identifier” to track how many abortions a patient has and when. That information and the identity of the patient could be released to authorities under a court order."

Words fail me.

The Right to Infringe on the Right of Women to Control Their Own Bodies Act is a considerably more honest and therefore more accurate name for the bill.

America is slowly becoming that which extremist Islamic counties would be proud.

The people who resist a database for gun owners, a database of gun deaths, and a federal voter registration system to secure our elections, now want a database of people who get an abortion?

Why am I not surprised?

Maybe the party of liberty and freedom are a little less for that liberty and freedom as we've been led to believe.

If the few Dems in the Oklahoma would introduce a law exposing everyone that looked at porn on their government computer their would be vast republican uproar.

Les Carpenter said...

Yup. For cons it is like this... what's good for me ain't good for thee.

The gop and right wing cons, always the hypocrites.

The republicans desire to control every aspect of a persons life is going to cost them the presidency and both houses of congress. We will revert to an oppressive form of government designed to reward failure and punish success called democrat control. Which is worse depends on the side you are on.
Why do we let politicians control our lives. They are the most inept and dishonest species of human existence yet we give them powers to decide.

I have both fingers on both hands and toes on both feet crossed that you skud, on this singular issue, are absolutely right.

The gop has outlived any usefulness it one possessed... it is now time it goes the way of the Whigs.

Normally I'd direct some snark at Skudrunner but anyone who dislikes politicians as much as George Mason can't be all bad.

Another reason for an out of state trip.
