Chamber of Commerce clamps down hard on social conservatives on reproductive bills

Social conservatives in Oklahoma are infuriated over the blocking of a personhood bill. They write:

Republican leaders in the Oklahoma Legislature have killed a pro-life bill without even allowing a floor vote on the measure.
The “personhood” bill would acknowledge that life begins at conception and has been passed or is under debate in a dozen states.
The Oklahoma House and Senate are controlled by Republican leaders who run for re-election under a GOP pro-life platform that promotes the sanctity of life. One GOP lawmaker said the personhood bill was killed because the State Chamber of Commerce instructed the GOP leadership to do so because the chamber didn’t want any negative national publicity.

3. LOL, won't make a difference. The GOP has already tainted itself.

It is amusing that they're trying to do damage control at this point though.

4. Too late, CoC, we got your number and you suck! Besides...

The much larger issue of 'personhood' and all the rest of this claptrap is not about life, it's about power and punishing the poor. If it was about life, you'd have been pushing universal healthcare all these years!

It's poverty that causes women to beg the government for their health needs which the CoC and social conservatives gloat over and sadistically make them jump through hopes to humiliate them further.

No rich woman is ever denied whatever she wants in healthcare, abortion, contraception, etc! Santorum's own wife had a late term abortion to save her life, but he voted to outlaw it for others!
