    In regards to taking the pill it would seem so. The bill I think is too vague or if that is the intent of the bill then it's gone much too far for me.

    This is also written into the bill.

    E. Nothing in this section shall be interpreted as creating a cause of action against a woman for indirectly harming her unborn child by failing to properly care for herself or by failing to follow any particular program of prenatal care.

    You are simply reading the nonsense of Personhood that anti abortion fanatics want passed. A stupid concept, isn't it? If we want to be smart about the subject, let's figure out how to promote ways that help prevent women from finding themselves in the position of choice in the first place. Demanding defunding of Planned Parenthood isn't one of them.

    Well the deadline for the bill to be heard by the House was today, and they didn't hear it, so it's pretty much dead.

    As dead as an attempt to rational discussion from posters in this thread.

    So the Oklahoma personhood initiative petition goes on and needs 155,000 signatures by May 30th. Over 500 churches are involved: http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/arti...articleid=20120421_18_A15_CUTLIN4887&allcom=1 Wording of the petition is here: http://personhoodoklahoma.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/OK-Personhood-Initiative.pdf

    The petition also has to survive a lawsuit over its constitutionality.

    I'd come much closer to signing the petition to allow wine to be sold in Oklahoma grocery stores in the 15 largest counties.
