This is great news. SB 709 is dead and session is over. Planned Parenthood's WIC program is safe (for now). It's good to know that there are sane people out there who are willing to stand up for programs like WIC, which provides nutrition and food vouchers to low-income mothers and children. But it's too bad that some legislators were (and still are) willing to sacrifice real families' health in order to win political points or to "punish" Planned Parenthood. That's why every victory like this one means something. So celebrate! Be thankful, and drink a glass of your favorite beverage in honor of Oklahoma's women and children.
