Supreme Court Nixes ‘Personhood’ Initiative Petition

In a unanimous (9-0) ruling, the State Supreme Court today ruled that the initiative petition granting “personhood” rights is unconstitutional.

The proposed constitutional amendment would define a fertilized human egg as a person.

The Court says the proposal “is clearly unconstitutional,” citing a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that upheld the right to an abortion. The court says the petition is void and ordered it stricken.

    Hmmm… Sounds like some crazy Judicial logic to me.

    Since the US Supreme Court ruled that abortion is legal, our Oklahoma Supreme Court justices use that to ignore the scientific evidence that life begins when the human egg is fertilized and strike down the voter’s initiative petition allowing Oklahomans to vote on the matter.

    How do we the people recall State Supreme Court judges???

    Outrageous! This is a ridiculous misapplication of precedent.
