Wide House Passage of Embryonic Stem Cell Ban in Oklahoma Despite Concerns
March 11, 2015
(KGOU) – The House overwhelmingly passed legislation Monday designed to prevent embryonic stem cell research in Oklahoma. The measure by state Rep. Dan Fisher would make it a felony crime to perform embryonic stem cell research. “Presently, the embryos are destroyed in the process of trying to extract these stem cells, and therefore that’s what this bill is attempting to prevent,” Fisher said on the House floor.
