(Worthy News) - The Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a 2014 measure to block access to medication-induced abortion is unconstitutional.

“Today’s decision is a critical victory for Oklahoma women and their doctors,” said Autumn Katz, Senior Counsel at the Center for Reproductive Rights. “Women deserve access to safe medication abortion regardless of what state they live in.”

The 2014 law, H.B. 2684, required women seeking drug-induced abortions to take three times as many medications than the singular necessary drug. The law also prohibited women from undergoing a medication abortion after 49 days of pregnancy, forcing them to have a surgical abortion instead. [ Source (Read More...) ]
