  • Holy shmokes! That's outrageous. I don't really even know what to say about that, but the headline had it right. Oklahoma, what have you done?!

  • Oh my GOD!!!! If the state of OK doesn't want abortions performed, why can't they just pass anti-abortion legislature? Parents have EVERY RIGHT to know if their child has birth defects if they want to. It's unethical to not allow them to prepare themselves for it.

  • I am may be against abortion, but I think this is down right horrific. Parents need to be prepared if they are going to have a child with challenges.  That is not right.  Maybe this might be something we all agree on.  For those who are anti-abortion I think this really hurts our cause.

  • I am pro life and I have to say that obviously it is wrong to allow doctors not to inform of a possible birth defect in the baby they are carrying.Yes there is a chance the doctor is wrong about there being a defect,it happens, but folks should still be informed if there is reasonable suspicion of a defect.There are other ways OK could have went in order to curb abortions.

  • I would suggest that any woman living in Oklahoma, leave the state immediately. It is not a safe place for any female to reside. Perhaps we should start raising funds to evacuate them. I'm not kidding.
