State legislators today voted to override Gov. Brad Henry’s veto of an anti-abortion bill.
House members voted 81-15 to override the governor’s veto less than an hour after senators voted 37-11 to do the same. In the House, 68 votes were needed to override the veto; 32 votes were needed in the Senate.
It was the first veto override of Henry since he took office in 2003.
Henry vetoed Senate Bill 1878 Wednesday. The bill would have required women to get an ultrasound of an unborn child before an abortion. The bill also was intended to protect health care providers’ rights not to participate in abortions and decisions whether to dispense a pill to end early pregnancies.
Big stuff going on here in our great state….mostly though my fabulous, OUR fabulous governer tried to get a bunch of fuckwits to back away from our pink parts and mind their own business. Apparently he was in the minority. I know there were a bunch of other things tagged onto this bill…but seriously folks. An ultrasound??? I have more rage than words.
I have always said, and will continue to say I don’t care what Pro team you are rooting for…you don’t get to play doctor with my body. Ever. Nunya. It’s mine. You go do what you want to with yours…this is mine. MINE!!
So way to go Gov. Veto that shit. Sorry bout the override. Sorry about that for sure.
meanwhile, back at the ranch….
