The fight is going on back and forth now on a state level (which was one the reasons there WAS a Federal Law)….
The Oklahoma Supreme Court on Wednesday tossed out two state laws outlawing abortion.
The state’s high court found that Senate Bill 1503 and House Bill 4327 were unconstitutional. Both measures were passed and signed by Gov. Kevin Stitt in 2022.
Senate Bill 1503 would have banned abortion when a fetal heartbeat was detected, which is usually at six weeks and before most women know they are pregnant.
It has an exception for a medical emergency, but does not define it.
House Bill 4327, described as the most strict abortion ban in the country, bans the procedure at conception and allows for civil suits where a plaintiff could be awarded a minimum of $10,000. It is based on a Texas law.
It has exceptions to save the life of the mother or in cases of rape, sexual assault or rape that have been reported to law enforcement.
The court ruled that it had found that there is an inherent right of a pregnant woman to terminate a pregnancy when it is necessary to preserve her life…..
