GOP governor warns sovereign Native American tribes to not make abortion accessible on their land

Native American tribes are allowed to govern themselves on their own land. Their sovereignty is the reason that they can have things like casinos in states where it is banned. Once known as Indian Territory, the state has more than 40 tribes in its borders.

It was just last month that Oklahoma politicians faced off against tribes in an ongoing refusal to cooperate with the Supreme Court decision in McGirt v. Oklahoma.

“In the McGirt ruling, the Supreme Court held that much of eastern Oklahoma is Indian country under the terms of an 1833 treaty between the U.S. government and the Muscogee Creek Nation,” explained Professor Kirsten Matoy Carlson of Wayne State University. “Based on that treaty and an 1885 federal law, the ruling effectively means that the state of Oklahoma cannot prosecute crimes committed by or against American Indians there. Federal and tribal officials are the only ones who can pursue these cases.”

Oklahoma’s state government has asked the Supreme Court to rehear the case over 40 times. Under the existing Supreme Court rulings, about 43% of Oklahoma is ruled by tribal lands. It ultimately means that the GOP governor doesn’t have control over the whole state when it comes to his laws.

There has been a conversation among activists searching for loopholes in anticipation of the unmaking of Roe v.Wade that putting clinics under tribal lands could be possible. Such a decision would require involvement by tribal councils, however. Sources involved in the tribal government of one Oklahoma tribe told Raw Story that many are unlikely to rock the boat.

If Stitt and others in the Oklahoma legislature attempt to restrict the tribes under the guise that they are trying to stop abortions, they could end up in a considerable legal battle over the right for Native tribes to govern themselves.

I hope Jones kicks his butt. Which states have primaries today?

And I hope another progressive runs in the district he’s abandoning. I used to contribute to this creep when he first came to congress running as openly gay person. Used to put pictures of his family that he sent me up on my home office bulletin board. He disappointed me several years ago and I’ve backed away but still getting the desperate emails from him.

John Fetterman, Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor and a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, is set to undergo a procedure to implant a pacemaker with a defibrillator, his campaign said.

“It should be a short procedure that will help protect his heart and address the underlying cause of his stroke, atrial fibrillation (A-fib), by regulating his heart rate and rhythm,” his campaign said.

The procedure comes days after Fetterman announced he was recovering from a stroke he suffered late last week. The 52-year-old said he went to the hospital on Friday after not feeling well and would remain a while for observation.

Earlier on Tuesday, Fetterman cast an emergency absentee ballot in Pennsylvania’s primary, his campaign said.

“Of course, he wants to go home and be with the kids and be out back on the road,” Second Lady Gisele Fetterman said outside a Braddock polling place where she voted on Tuesday morning. “But, you know, doctor’s orders and my orders. I am not letting that happen.”
