For Immediate Release

“We're disappointed in the Court's decision not to review the case, particularly given that Texas' similar ultrasound law was upheld by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. The unfortunate message sent by the Oklahoma Supreme Court’s decision in this case is that when it comes to abortion regulations, what is legal in other states is illegal in Oklahoma.”
