Oklahoma Resolution Regarding the Authority of Public Officials and Abortion Law (HR 1004)
This law was last updated on Sep 18, 2017
HR 1004 directs every public official in Oklahoma, including but not limited to sheriffs, district attorneys, judges and justices, the Attorney General, and the Governor, to exercise their authority as appropriate in their respective jurisdictions to stop the “murder of innocent unborn children” by abortion.
The symbolic resolution further directs Oklahoma judges and specifically justices of the Oklahoma Supreme Court to not interfere with the Legislature’s “right to clarify Oklahoma criminal law regarding abortion” per the Oklahoma Constitution.
The resolution includes legislative findings that all human beings are protected by the United States Constitution and that the United States Supreme Court “overstepped its authority and jurisdiction” by offering opinions in Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, and other abortion-related cases.
Enrolled, signed, and filed with the Secretary of State on May 9, 2017.
