(LifeNews) Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt today signed a bill into law that that would ban abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable.
Last Tuesday, the state Senate passed the heartbeat bill and two other pro-life measures and today Stitt signed them into law.
“I’m keeping my promise to sign all pro-life legislation. We now have three more laws protecting the lives of the unborn! HB 2441, HB 1904, and HB 1102,” he said in a message on twitter along with photos of him signing the bills.
