OK Legislature Passes A Bill Targeting Medical Licenses of Doctors Who Perform Abortions
Washington Post (April 23, 2016): Abortion doctors would lose medical licenses under new Oklahoma bill, by Niraj Chokshi
The Oklahoma legislature continues to pass legislation designed to undermine women's access to abortion. Last week the legislature passed a bill that would bar doctors who perform abortions from obtaining or renewing medical licenses. The bill will become law unless it is vetoed by the Governor.
The Oklahoma Medical Association oppose the legislation because it overrides physical judgment. In a statement, the Center for Reproductive Rights criticized the bill as "cruel and unconstitutional."
