Abortions rights group challenges Oklahoma anti-abortion law

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) —An abortion rights group asked the Oklahoma Supreme Court on Thursday to overturn a 2014 law that it says was designed to shut down abortion clinics in the state.

The law, which hasn’t taken effect because of a temporary injunction, would only allow abortions to be performed if a physician with local hospital admitting privileges is present.

Oklahoma County District Judge Don Andrews upheld the law last month, rejecting The Center for Reproductive Rights’ argument that it was an unconstitutional special law meant to shut down abortion clinics. He said the law doesn’t single out abortion providers or their patients and that the state “has a legitimate, constitutionally recognized interest in protecting women’s health.”

Andrews allowed the injunction to remain in place while the case was appealed to the state Supreme Court.

    Murder is Murder no matter which form or method one chooses. Abortion is just a so called legal form of murder. There will be no Murders in the kingdom of God. They like Obummer so much that they will get to spend all eternity with him in the pits of hell with satan and all his demons.

    Changing the word “murder” to “abortion” doesn’t change the meaning or make it a right.. abortionist are murderers

      Omein, Luke! “Abortion rights” is literally a bloody oxymoron, and the people who put those two words together are dead wrong. Both the push for prenatal murder and for the LGBT agenda are not matters of human rights, but of population control. I heard a radio commentator say years ago that it sure stopped the population explosion of Sodom and Gomorrah.

      We can rest assured that all those millions of murdered babies are in the care and custody of our Master Yahushua (Lord Jesus), and all those who refuse to repent of these murders will see those babies alive and in the Kingdom before they are sent to suffer the second death, from which there is no resurrection. Yes, He will balance all accounts as no other can, and that’s why our Father appointed Him over all creation.

      Blessed be the Name of Yahuwah our Mighty One, blessed be His Son Yahushua, and blessed be His Kingdom for all the endless ages of the ages, omein.

    But I thought the clinic were looking out for the safety of women but they don’t want to be need a hospital. Funny there are hospitals all over the city. Shame I think they couldn’t do their harvesting in a hospital.
