BIRMINGHAM, AL – Lifeline Children’s Services endorses the Oklahoma State Legislature’s Senate Bill 612, which makes performing an abortion, unless a medical emergency, a felony in the state of Oklahoma. This bill is on the cusp of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on the Dobbs v. Jackson case, which could overturn Roe v. Wade.
“The enactment of Oklahoma’s Senate Bill 612 is historical news for Oklahoma and the thousands of human lives that will be saved,” said Herbie Newell, president of Lifeline Children’s Services. “Lifeline Children’s Services will continue to advocate for women in crisis as we provide alternatives that champion life. We are pro-human flourishing, pro-human life and pro-woman. Lifeline is currently in the process of being licensed in the state of Oklahoma, but stands ready even now to serve the women, families and children of Oklahoma.”
