(WNS)–Oklahoma is set to become the second state to prohibit late-term, dismemberment abortions. In a 37-4 vote, the Oklahoma Senate passed a bill based on model legislation from the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC). The House already passed the bill in February by an 84-2 vote. Though Republican Gov. Mary Fallin hasn’t indicated whether she will sign it, she has approved pro-life bills in the past. If the bill becomes law, Oklahoma will join Kansas in banning the late-term abortions. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed a similar measure in April.
