While abortion advocates like NARAL are targeting pregnancy resource centers and their life-saving work in states like Washington and Virginia, those same centers got a boost this week in Oklahoma.
On Rose Day, the annual pro-life lobbying day in the Oklahoma legislature, the Senate unanimously passed AUL’s model resolution supporting the state’s pregnancy centers. Pro-life advocate Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, was present to discuss the importance of standing up for our shared pro-life values and seeing them implemented in law. The resolution was introduced by Oklahoma Senator Dan Newberry.
Senator Newberry said it was important that the Senate express support for organizations that help women make life-affirming choices regarding pregnancy and parenting. “As hundreds of Oklahomans gather today at the Capitol to promote and support the lives of the unborn, it is only appropriate that the Senate honor groups that provide assistance for women who choose childbirth over abortion,” said Newberry, R-Tulsa. “Pregnancy Resource Centers operate primarily through voluntary donations and the time and commitment of individuals who genuinely care about promoting and protecting life. We strongly support their efforts to serve women and men facing unplanned pregnancies.”
