HR 1004 directs every public official in Oklahoma, including but not limited to sheriffs, district attorneys, judges and justices, the Attorney General, and the Governor, to exercise their authority as appropriate in their respective jurisdictions to stop the “murder of innocent unborn children” by abortion.

The symbolic resolution further directs Oklahoma judges and specifically justices of the Oklahoma Supreme Court to not interfere with the Legislature’s “right to clarify Oklahoma criminal law regarding abortion” per the Oklahoma Constitution.

The resolution includes legislative findings that all human beings are protected by the United States Constitution and that the United States Supreme Court “overstepped its authority and jurisdiction” by offering opinions in Roe v. WadePlanned Parenthood v. Casey, and other abortion-related cases.
