Okla. governor signs bill on abortion restrictions
Question of the Day
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A bill that imposes strict regulations and requirements on abortion providers in Oklahoma has been signed into law by the governor.
Gov. Mary Fallin on Wednesday signed the bill that requires abortion clinics to have a physician with admitting privileges at a nearby hospital present when an abortion is performed. The bill further requires the Oklahoma Board of Health to establish standards regarding equipment and supplies that might be needed in a medical emergency.
The bill’s author, state Rep. Randy Grau, says it will require abortion clinics to be equipped and staffed to deal with a medical emergency.
A spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood says the bill will severely restrict a woman’s access to safe, legal abortion in the state and has other medically unnecessary requirements for abortion providers.
