SB 1433 has already passed the state Senate, and is now in the House, set to come to the floor about 1:30 today.

Reproductive justice advocates (Oklahoma Coalition for Reproductive Justice and Planned Parenthood) have mounted a significant campaign against the legislation, and has (finally) been joined by doctors publicly opposing the measure.

The Democrats have also been busy, and have proposed 22 amendments, which seek to lessen the severity of the Act and create both friction and cover for legislators to ultimately vote against the bill (many say they don't like it, but will they have the courage to vote accordingly? )

OCRJ will be in the gallery today, starting at 11. Personhood supporters put out a call for their people to come at Noon. OCRJ will be in PINK, personhood in BLUE: the gallery should be colorful!

OCRJ will be live tweeting and updating on Facebook if you want to follow along:

live tweeting @ OK Capitol 2day's #personhood vote in House. Follow @ocrjpinkwave or #ocrj #sb1433 Also FB at #okp2 #p2
This is our first attempt at live tweeting, so be gentle if we are not experts yet.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
