Early Pro-life Victories, Two Bills Head to House Floor

This week’s slate of bills supported by the Catholic Conference of Oklahoma include two important pro-life measures: House Bill 3676 and House Bill 3447.

HB3676 facilitates the provision of federal or state funds to pro-life pregnancy resource centers. And HB3447 prohibits the state from granting Medicaid funding to any health-care provider that has failed to report statutory rape as required by mandatory child-abuse reporting laws.

Both measures are headed to the House floor, likely early next week, for consideration by the full State House. If approved, the bills will head to Senate committee consideration.
