Senate Bill 1267, authored by Treat and Rep. Kevin Calvey, (R-OKC), passed out of the House Rules Committee 7-2. The bill prohibits a medical provider from receiving Medicaid funds through the state if that medical provider has trafficked in baby body parts.
Tony Lauinger, State Chairman of Oklahomans for Life, detailed, “[The bill harkens] to the undercover videos of abortionists callously haggling over how much additional money they can get for harvesting and trafficking in the organs of babies they have killed. This horrific spectacle has been viewed on television screens across the country, and yet taxpayer money continues going to entities that have been involved in this grotesque practice.”
SB 1267 will likely be debated on the House floor in the next week or two.
