Oklahoma Supreme Court Temporarily Blocks Admitting Privileges Law and Medication Abortion Restrictions
The New York Times: Oklahoma Supreme Court Blocks 2 Abortion Laws, by Timothy Williams:
The Oklahoma Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked two new laws that critics say may have made it difficult for women to obtain abortions in the state.
The measures, approved by the State Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin, took effect Nov. 1.
But in a unanimous decision released Tuesday, the State Supreme Court voted to prevent enforcement of the rules until lawsuits challenging their constitutionality are settled by a lower court. . . .
