This week, Governor Mary Fallin was in the national spotlight after vetoing a bill that would strip doctors of their medical license if they perform an abortion. The governor claimed the bill was too vague to pass. 

Right now, there is a rally in front of the governor's office as pro-life supporters want her to stop an abortion clinic from opening in Oklahoma City.

The Trust Women South Wind Women's Center has been under construction for a few months in Oklahoma City.  A spokeswoman said the clinic would have gone forward with or without the governor's veto.

Legislators are considering an over-ride of the governor's veto, but they say they will give her till Friday to meet with them to discuss the matter.  The governor cannot back out of her veto once its cast, and Friday is the last day of the legislative session, so it would give the legislature little time for a "Plan B".
