Republican Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt announced a pregnancy resource website more than a year after signing a law banning nearly all abortions in the state.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health launched the website Thursday. In June 2022, Governor Stitt signed a bill prohibiting abortion in all cases except when there is a medical emergency, threatening abortionists with up to 10 years in prison.

“You are not alone. Many programs and services, designed to help you before, during and after pregnancy, are listed on this site,” the website reads.

The website offers resources to pregnant women in the state on parenting, the adoption process and financial assistance programs. The site includes links on how mothers could be eligible for Medicaid or funds through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), a government fund which supports children whose parents are unable to.

“A child is a gift from God, but a pregnancy can be a confusing and trying time without support. The launch of this incredible resource is a reflection of our commitment to uplift and empower expectant mothers across Oklahoma,” Governor Stitt said in a press release.

“By consolidating all of this essential information and assistance into one convenient platform, we’re hoping to strengthen the support system that every mom and family deserves.”

“Our vision is to lead Oklahoma to prosperity through health,” Oklahoma’s Commissioner of Health Keith Reed said. “That starts at the beginning of life. We want to and need to be a resource for pregnant women in our communities as they navigate bringing a newborn baby into the world. The collaboration between state agencies and community partners on centralizing support information for Oklahoma families is critical to helping meet their needs before, during and after birth.”
