Oklahoma lawmaker Justin Humphrey – The Grand Wizard of the Derplahoman Party – is up to his old animal-hating tricks!
Not content just being the guy who wanted to introduce a bigfoot hunting season or legalize elephant torture, he’s the sponsor of the Oklahoma Cockfighter Protection Act, and is trying to work it through the State House.
Here are details from the Norman Transcript:

On Tuesday, The Oklahoma House passed its latest anti-abortion bill that, once signed into law by Governor Stitt, would essentially make it illegal for an abortion to be performed except when the woman’s life is at risk.
Here are details Via the NY Times:
Lawmakers in Oklahoma on Tuesday approved a near-total ban on abortion, making it the latest Republican-led state to forge ahead with stringent abortion legislation as the Supreme Court weighs a case that could overturn Roe v. Wade later this year.
The measure, Senate Bill 612, would make performing an abortion “except to save the life of a pregnant woman in a medical emergency” a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $100,000.
The Oklahoma House voted 70 to 14 to send the bill, which passed the Senate last year, to Gov. Kevin Stitt, a Republican whose office responded by noting that Mr. Stitt vowed in September to sign “every piece of pro-life legislation” that came to his desk.
If SCOTUS really does overturn Roe v. Wade, this law will stay in effect and basically render all pathways to a safe, medical abortion obsolete.
As a woman who likes to A) Plan, B) Keep my options for abortion always open, and C) Shitpost, I figured why not share several new ways – which are also old ways – you too can get an abortion once our state inevitably bans it…
