Oklahoma Governor Signs Bills Outlawing Nearly All Abortions

HeadlineApr 27, 2021

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt has signed several bills that would make abortions almost completely illegal statewide. One bill would revoke the medical license of any Oklahoma doctor who performs an abortion, except in very rare circumstances; another bill bans abortions around six weeks of pregnancy; and a third requires doctors who perform abortions be board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology. The legislation will face immediate legal challenges.
