Judge to let most of new abortion law take effect


#1

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma County judge plans to let a new law take effect next month to restrict the use of certain abortion-inducing drugs, but is temporarily suspending any portion that subjects abortion providers to legal liability.

District Judge Robert Stuart issued his ruling Wednesday following a hearing on the law that was passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature earlier this year and takes effect Nov. 1.

An Oklahoma women’s rights group and a Tulsa medical clinic that provides abortion services filed a lawsuit last month contending the law is an unconstitutional violation of a woman’s right to choose to end her pregnancy and should be declared void.
