Kevin Stitt, a Republican running for governor, vowed this week to appoint justices to the Oklahoma Supreme Court who share his views against abortion.
“We don’t even have a pro-life Oklahoma Supreme Court,” Stitt said at a forum sponsored by the Beckham County Republican Party and aired on KWEY radio in Weatherford.
“So as governor, I will make sure we get pro-life justices on the Oklahoma Supreme Court and then I’ll sign every piece of (pro-life) legislation that hits my desk.”
All the major Republican candidates for governor have taken strong stances against abortion, with Yukon pastor Dan Fisher calling for the immediate abolition of all abortions.
Stitt was the first to say he would have a litmus test for Supreme Court justices, who are appointed by the governor from a pool screened by the state judicial nominating commission.
