    Okla. court says abortion laws unconstitutional

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Oklahoma laws requiring women seeking abortions to have an ultrasound image placed in front of them while they hear a description of the fetus and that ban off-label use of certain abortion-inducing drugs are unconstitutional, the state Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.
    2 decisions from one of the most Conservative state supreme courts in the nation, and they were unanimous on one decision, and almost unanimous on the other decision. I applaud them.

    I'd rather government stayed out of it.

    I also don't want to see a picture of a cow before I have a nicely done steak.

    I had held some hope, maybe not a lot of hope, but some hope my state's court system is called conservative because of a very cautious approach to permitting government infringing into traditionally private matters. The doctor/patient relationship is heralded when discussing gubmint 'death panels' yet eagerly cast aside to interfere in the ordeal that is abortion.

    So I have to smile at the result, it appears Okies have a supreme court that is conservative about maintaining the Constitution and not merely bending to the fads of a political party calling itself 'conservative'.

    I just mite wear my Oklahoma ball cap all weekend to celebrate...

    Yeah that is one of the problems I have going to a local meat producer--I have to look at the herd as I drive up to pick up my order LOL.

    That's surprising, to say the least.

    I'm sure they'll be hearing from the DOJ anytime now.

    I doubt it. Their decision is Constitutional.
