Attorney General Pruitt’s Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Decision to Hear Oklahoma Abortion Case


 
“This is an extraordinary decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to review the actions of Oklahoma’s Supreme Court, which has consistently misapplied federal law to strike down Oklahoma abortion laws,” Attorney General Scott Pruitt said. “This law does not ban the use of abortion-inducing drugs, but seeks to protect women from harmful off-label uses. The Court grants less than 1 percent of such review requests and we look forward to the opportunity to defend Oklahoma’s right to protect its citizens.”
