Parental Consent Amendment Clears State House, Headed to the Governor

House Bill 1727, the bill containing the amendment authored by State Senator Scott Pruitt (R-Broken Arrow) establishing liability when doctors do not acquire parental consent before performing an abortion on a minor, passed the State House of Representatives today and is headed to the governor for approval.

"This is a great day for the people of Oklahoma," said Senator Pruitt. "After years of work by countless individuals life has won out. Today we made a statement that Oklahoma values life and that parents must be a part of their children's lives."

"I commend my colleagues in the House and Senate for working with me to get this amendment passed," said Senator Pruitt.
