AG Pruitt Statement on Oklahoma Supreme Court Decision in Oklahoma Abortion Cases


“We disagree with the court’s decision, particularly with the fact that the question on whether Oklahoma’s Constitution provides a right to an abortion was left unanswered,” Attorney General Scott Pruitt said. “We also are disappointed that the court upheld the district court ruling on abortion-inducing drugs such as RU-486. There is overwhelming evidence that the off-label use of abortion-inducing drugs leads to serious infections and death for many healthy, unsuspecting women. This is not OK. Our job is to protect the citizens of Oklahoma and we will consider an appeal.”
