Americans United for Life Disappointed by Oklahoma Governor's Veto of Bill Banning Destructive Embryo Research
Date:4/23/2009

OKLAHOMA CITY, April 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Last night, Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry vetoed Oklahoma House Bill 1326, a bill making it illegal for any Oklahoma business to conduct research that would kill a human embryo or subject an unborn child to a substantial risk of death or injury. The Oklahoma House of Representatives immediately overrode the veto; however, the Oklahoma Senate failed to follow suit.

The bill would have banned research requiring the destruction of unborn children. Maressa Treat, AUL Oklahoma State Director, stated, "This life-saving bill was vital to keeping Oklahoma a leader in the pro-life movement. The veto is disappointing to all who support life issues, such as banning embryonic stem cell research."

Daniel S. McConchie, AUL Vice President of Government Affairs, added, "This important legislation was the victim of a disinformation campaign designed to scare the public and prevent them from understanding its true purpose: saving human lives. We look forward to educating the people of Oklahoma about why this legislation is vital to the state."
