The senate passed a bill containing stricter abortion regulations. The bill passed easily. According to a March 12 report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma senators passed the pro-life bill 34-8.

The bill, written by Sen. Greg Treat, is now making its way to the House. The House of Representatives has supported most pro-life laws. This bill is also expected to pass.

Without debate and only a small discussion the pro-life bill was passed. If passed by the House of Representatives, the law would require the state Board of Health to have a list of standards for abortion facilities, personnel and equipment. Those standards would have to be maintained at all times.

One of the requirements would be that the abortionist or another physician with privileges at an accredited hospital be on the premises when an abortion is performed. That accredited hospital must be within 30 miles of the abortion clinic.

The bill passed the senate on Wednesday, March 12. At the time of publication, it was unknown when the House of Representatives would be voting on the pro-life bill.
