The undeniably red state of Oklahoma just secured a resounding win for unborn babies and the pro-life movement.
During a signing ceremony on Tuesday, Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signed the Life at Conception Act, which makes it a felony to commit abortions at any age in the womb. The law went into effect immediately.
The only exception to the law is in the event that the mother's life is at risk, which accounts for an extremely limited number of abortions.
Doctors who consent to performing abortions face 10 years of prison time and a fine of up to $100,000, according to Tulsa World.
“I promised Oklahomans that I would sign every pro-life bill that hit my desk,” Stitt said about the legislation. “And that is what we are doing here today.”
Students for Life, a nonprofit devoted to promoting pro-life legislation and engaging students in the cause, celebrated the "strongest pro-life law in the country" in a photo on Twitter.
