According to the local news in Oklahoma City:
A bill in the Oklahoma Legislature would allow pregnant women to use deadly force in order to save the lives of their babies.
The bill stems from a Michigan case where a woman who was carrying quadruplets stabbed and killed her boyfriend after he hit her in the stomach. The woman lost the babies and was convicted of manslaughter.
Oklahoma lawmakers said they want to make sure that a woman can legally protect her unborn child.
Oklahoma already has a law allowing a person to use force to protect himself or another person from someone else. The new bill includes an unborn child as “another” person. Oklahoma has also had a law covering the murder of unborn babies since 2005.
I’m not sure what they mean by that last sentence, but it sounds like a good thing. In any event, the bill is expected to pass both houses and go to the governor’s desk. More steps in the right direction . . .
