Statement from Senate Democrats on Senate medical care ban

OKLAHOMA CITY – Senate Democratic Leader Kay Floyd, D-Oklahoma City, issued the following statement regarding Senate Bill 613, which passed the full Senate Wednesday 40-8.

β€œThe rights of Oklahoma parents were diminished in the State Senate today. Oklahoma parents love their children, and they have the right to choose the medical treatment they need. Best practice medical care saves lives. Senate Bill 613 is government intrusion that subverts the parent/guardian decision-making process. This legislation is anti-parental choice and will cost Oklahoma medical talent and lives. We should have more faith in Oklahoma parents.”
