OK House passes bill that would ban abortions for certain birth defects

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – HB1549, which bans abortions in instances of certain birth defects, has passed in the House.

The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2017 would prohibit an abortion solely because of an in-utero diagnosis of Down syndrome or a genetic abnormality. The bill holds physicians who violate this measure liable.

The bill will now be sent to the Oklahoma Senate for consideration.
