Hey, let’s look Oklahoma’s way:
Under a bill passed by the legislature this week, doctors who perform abortions — defined in the measure as “unprofessional conduct” — would be barred from obtaining or renewing their medical licenses. The bill, now on the governor’s desk, would not apply to abortions performed to save a mother’s life, although the bill lacks similar exceptions for abortions performed in cases of rape or incest.
So, the bill would disbar doctor’s for performing a legal operation with the patient’s consent. That doesn’t sound constitutional
He took issue with the suggestion that the effort should have been tabled because it could result in a prolonged legal battle.
“Do we make laws because they’re moral and right, or do we make them based on what an unelected judicial occupant might question or want to overturn? The last time I looked, that’s why I thought we had a separation of power,” he said.
If you pass a bill that is clearly unconstitutional then you’re a bad lawmaker and really shouldn’t be allowed to continue.
