IVF Is Now Illegal in Oklahoma

Oklahoma legislators have passed a law banning abortion after conception, which critics say is the most restrictive such measure in the US.

The Republican-led bill would prohibit all abortions, except to save the life of the woman or if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest.

Some methods of IVF involve freezing fetilized eggs. Those methods clearly would be illegal in Oklahoma. One might argue that IVF in general, since the eggs is fertilized outside of the body, might be illegal. So if a woman wants to become pregnant in Oklahoma and has fertility issues, no baby for you.

But hey, that's what happens when the Cult of the Fetus doesn't bother to think about what it's doing. Or maybe they think that those women who now can't bear kids in Oklahoma, because of stte law, may line up to adopt the unwanted babies who will be born there.

They ought to set up a baby-drop-box in the statehouse.
