Oklahoma Senate Wants Fetus To “Speak” To Woman Before the Abortion

Robin Marty

The senate passes a bill to have providers offer to let women seeking a termination listen to the heartbeat first so the fetus can "communicate."

The Oklahoma state senate has a message for women who want to terminate their pregnancies.

The fetus (blastocyst? embryo?) wants to talk to them.

That’s the justification for a recently passed bill that would require abortion providers to offer to let women listen to the heartbeat of a fetus or embryo before they undergo the procedure.

Republican Senator Dan Newberry of Tulsa… said the proposed law is important to further “a culture of life” in Oklahoma.

The heartbeat is the only way for a fetus to communicate that it wants to live, Newberry said.

“It can’t say please don’t kill me, it can’t say I want to live. It can’t say anything,” he said.

Originally, rather than just mandating that the physician offer the woman the chance to hear a heartbeat, the bill would have required that she do so, but that language was changed before the vote.
