For Immediate Release: March
Sen. Todd Lamb
Senate Passes Pro-Life Legislation
The Oklahoma State Senate passed key pro-life legislation
that provides protection to pro-life healthcare providers.
Senate Bill 1878 by Senator Todd Lamb, R-Edmond, creates the Freedom
of Conscience Act, which protects the rights of healthcare providers
to refuse to take part in the destruction of human life.
Protection under this legislation is provided to employees or prospective
employees who have objections, based on their religious conviction
or moral code, to such scenarios as participating in or performing
an abortion, stem cell research, or euthanasia.
“The bipartisan effort made to allow this legislation to
pass is to be applauded,” said Senator Lamb. “Pro-life
healthcare providers deserve protection for their moral or religious
convictions, and Senate Bill 1878 does just that.”
Senate Bill 1878 will now move to the House for consideration.
