Army veteran Sean Parnell announced Tuesday that he will run for Sen. Pat Toomey’s (R-PA) senate seat in Pennsylvania’s 2022 election. Toomey will not be seeking reelection.

“Protecting and preserving the American way of life has always been a mission of mine,” Parnell told Brian Kilmeade on Fox and Friends.

In his announcement, he pointed out the 50/50 Senate. “I’m running for Senate here in Pennsylvania to take back the majority and stand up for America,” he tweeted.

Parnell is a retired infantry captain. “I’ve led some of America’s finest warriors in battle, and I’m ready to bring that leadership to Washington,” he said in his announcement video.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
