Abstract

Recently, the Oklahoma Supreme Court blocked the implementation of yet another abortion restriction. Oklahoma has some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the nation and only three abortion clinics in the entire state. In September 2015, Dr. Larry Burns, one of Oklahoma’s few abortion providers, filed a challenge to SB 642 on the ground that it violates the Oklahoma Constitution’s single subject rule. The challenged legislation contains four different provisions targeting abortion, including warrantless searches of abortion clinics and expanded criminal and civil penalties for violations of a broad swath of abortion regulations.
