    On May 31, 2023, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled the two state abortion laws enacted in 2022 are unconstitutional due to the vague language about a medical emergency. Read the court ruling to see that this decision is consistent with their March ruling.

    The 1910 law prohibiting abortion unless it is necessary to preserve a mother’s life remains in effect. However, the civil "vigilante" actions a private citizen could bring contained in those two state abortion laws ruled unconstitutional are no longer in effect. Read Senate Leader Kay Floyd's Comments regarding the decision.

    We must let our legislators know our views and that they should not enact replacement abortion laws that comply with the court's decision in a Special Session or next Session.

    Every other year, our party hosts four conventions, starting in March, and culminating in June with the state party convention!

    The March meetings will be held at various locations at 7 PM on the 16th. This is where we elect precinct officers! This is such an important volunteer opportunity! You will represent our party in your neighborhood and be asked to make contact with the Democrats in your area and keep them informed of upcoming elections and candidates, register voters, and work to expand our party!

    Becoming a precinct officer also comes with the benefit of a vote at the County convention, congressional district convention, and state party convention. This is where we will elect our officers, and propose and vote on resolutions.

    Together we can elevate our numbers at the polls and move Oklahoma forward!
