Oklahoma Legislators Pass Bill Outlawing Abortion

Oklahoma legislators have approved a bill that would outlaw abortion and take away the medical licenses of physicians who perform abortions if signed into law.

Opponents are threatening to sue saying the measure is unconstitutional because the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on the issue making abortion legal. The Center for Reproductive Rights issued a press release to “strongly urge Governor Fallin to reject this cruel and unconstitutional ban.”

The Center for Reproductive Rights urgesthat “The Bill contains no exceptions for the woman’s life or health and would strip physicians who provide abortion care of their medical licenses.” A bill summary states that “It modifies the definition of abortion to include an exception to preserve the life or health of the mother.”
