The Oklahoma Supreme Court today issued yet another blow to the Every Sperm is Sacred movement that keeps trying to define a fertilized egg as a person with all of the rights and constitutional protections as an actual, you know, person. Thus far, the amendment has failed in every state in which it has been proposed, but that hasn't stopped the extremists from continuing their mission to give rights to eggs at the expense of the women who carry them.
Their latest target was Oklahoma, with a proposed ballot initiative like all the other failed personhood amendments.
However, today the state's Supreme Court said nuh uh to that nonsense:
The United States Supreme Court has spoken on this issue. The measure is clearly unconstitutional pursuant to Planned Parenthood v. Casey, 505 U.S. 833 (1992). The states are duty bound to follow its interpretation of the law. Twenty years ago, this Court was presented with an initiative which facially conflicted with the Casey decision. This Court held: "The issue of the constitutionality of the initiative petition is governed by the United States Supreme Court's pronouncement in Casey." [...]That's legalese for "Seriously, people? The Supreme Court covered this 20 years ago, so fuck off already."
The mandate of Casey is as binding on this Court today as it was twenty years ago. Initiative Petition No. 395 conflicts with Casey and is void on its face and it is hereby ordered stricken.
But knowing the egg worshippers, this won't stop them from trying again.
