At their convention last Saturday, the Kay County (OK) GOP voted in favor of a resolution directing State Senator Bill Coleman and State Representatives John Pfeifer and Ken Luttrell to support the Abolition of Abortion in Oklahoma Act (SB13). Tonkawa activist Daniel Watts introduced and spoke in favor of the resolution and the vote of the 21 Kay County Republican delegates was unanimous. The resolution reads:
WHEREAS, We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness;
WHEREAS, The Oklahoma Republican Party Platform directs on the Addendum of page 5 “Be it resolved that the abolition of abortion be brought to a full floor vote in both Oklahoma Legislative Chambers.”
WHEREAS. Abortion is considered a crime under Oklahoma Statutes 21-861 and 21- 862; and
WHEREAS, The 10th Amendment states that “(t)he powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States respectively, or to the people.”;
Be It Resolved, The Kay County Republican Party calls upon Senator Bill Coleman to co-author and fully support SB 13 (The Oklahoma Abolition of Abortion Act);
Resolved, The Kay County Republican Party calls upon Representatives John Pfeifer and Ken Luttrell and to author a companion bill to SB 13 (The Oklahoma Abolition of Abortion Act).
On Wednesday, Senator Coleman will have an opportunity to agree with or reject the new Kay County Republican platform when a motion to bring SB13 to the Senate floor is going to be filed. There will be a vote on whether to hear SB13 or to table it.
If you live in Oklahoma, and especially if you live in Kay County or Senate District 10, email and call Senator Coleman to tell him to support SB13 being brought to the floor and to cosponsor the bill as the resolution lays out.
