Pro-Life Bill Passes Rules Committee

Edmond State Senator Todd Lamb’s pro-life bill passed the Senate Rules Committee Wednesday with a vote of 8-0.

Senate Bill 1878, titled the Freedom of Conscience Act, protects the rights of healthcare providers to refuse to take part in the destruction of human life.

Employees or prospective employees who object to scenarios such as participating in or performing an abortion, stem cell research, or euthanasia, based on their religious conviction or moral code, would be protected under this legislation.

Senator Lamb applauded the passage and said, “Human life is a most precious gift and protecting the rights of those who protect it is vital. I am encouraged by the unanimous, bipartisan vote and look forward to working with my colleagues on this bill as it advances.”
