How appealing


CFN

Gazette staff
State Attorney General Scott Pruitt doesn’t like taking “no” for an answer, at least not when it’s coming from the state Supreme Court striking down abortion restrictions. He filed an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court last week after the state court struck down a 2010 law requiring women seeking an abortion to first undergo an ultrasound and hear a detailed explanation of the procedure.

Contraception and population


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
In response to “Embryonic” by Dr. Dominic M. Pedulla (Letters, Oklahoma Gazette, March 27), I have to admit that I am taken aback by a man of science being so disconnected from the idea that unchecked procreation will not have negative consequences in the long term.

Pondering religious freedom


Letters to the Editor

K.A. Straughn
Concerning Hobby Lobby’s refusal to pay for emergency birth control under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Dennis Weigand (Letters to the Editor, “Questioning Hobby Lobby, May 8, Oklahoma Gazette) writes, “Is employment at Hobby Lobby conditional on agreement with the religious views of the owners? If it is not, then [Hobby Lobby’s] claim that their religious freedom would be violated by the ACA is nothing but a hollow pretense to religious superiority, taking the position that Hobby Lobby’s religious freedom is more important than the religious freedom of their employees.”

Abortion doctors not trimmed from tort reform


CFN

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

LETTERS


Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton
Thanks for publishing that great commentary (Sept. 11, Gazette) titled “Contraception empowers women” by Ryan Kiesel. Kiesel said that Oklahoma legislators passed an amendment to “limit access to emergency contraception in Oklahoma.” Limiting access to emergency contraception would undoubtedly mean more unintended pregnancies, thus the likelihood of more abortions — abortions which these same legislators fanatically oppose! What a revolting development!

Just how sacred is it?


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahoma tends to be about as invasive as a pap smear when it comes to women’s rights. According to lifesitenews.com, four Oklahoma universities believe that the Affordable Care Act violates Christian beliefs by mandating women’s health options that may pay for or include information about abortions.

Planned Parenthood prevents abortions


Letters to the Editor

Nathaniel Batchelder
I have learned that 99 percent of Planned Parenthood’s budget probably goes for programs that extend health and contraceptive services to women in need.
