Fallin, who is known for her anti-abortion views, has been mentioned as a potential running mate to Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. The measure, which was sure to face legal challenges, was introduced by Republican Senator Nathan Dahm, who has said he hoped it would lead to overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States.
