Judge Temporarily Halts Oklahoma Abortion Law

Gavel on sounding block

An Oklahoma judge is ordering a temporary injunction on the state's abortion law. The law, which was signed by Governor Kevin Stitt earlier this year, allows patients to choose whether they want to change their mind after taking their first or second abortion pill. 

Critics of the law say it would force Oklahoma doctors to tell patients that medication abortions can be reversed. 

"We believe women ought to know that this option is out there," said State Senator Julie Daniels (R) Wednesday on the phone. She co-authored the bill along with Rep. Mark Lepak (R).

But opponents argue it violates doctors' ethics and First Amendment rights.
