Abortion doctors not trimmed from tort reform

Gazette staff September 18th, 2013

Apparently, state Rep. Mike Reynolds doesn’t believe physicians who perform abortions should receive the same level of protection from lawsuits as other doctors.

 During the Legislature’s recent special session, almost two dozen measures dealing with tort reform were approved by the House and Senate and signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin.

However, one didn’t make it. Reynolds wanted legislative leaders to support a pro-life amendment exempting abortion providers from the lawsuit reform protections when something goes wrong during the procedure.

Based on his comment from a prepared statement, Reynolds obviously was ticked off with legislative leaders when that didn’t happen.

“I am appalled that House leaders are more concerned about expediency than about human life,” he said.
