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.
