Oklahoma Judge Issues Temporary Injunction Against Abortion Pill Reversal Law

An abortion clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with the help of the Center for Reproductive Rights, persuaded Oklahoma County Judge Don Andrews to issue a temporary injunction against SB 614, a law that would require abortionists to tell their patients about abortion pill reversal at least 72 hours before her scheduled abortion. Judge Andrews said that he wanted to hear additional arguments at trial before he would allow the law to take effect.
