Not only did Oklahoma's ban affect medication abortions, but also made termininating an ectopic pregnancy using these medications against the law. Ectopic pregnancies are those which occur outside the uterus. They are 100 percent fatal to the fetus, and women who have ectopic pregnancies have a high mortality rate UNLESS THEY ARE TREATED.05.14.12 - (PRESS RELEASE) In an unprecedented ruling recognizing bodily integrity and reproductive choice as fundamental rights under the Oklahoma state constitution, an Oklahoma state judge has found that a law severely and arbitrarily restricting medical care for women seeking an abortion is unconstitutional and cannot be enforced.
Women seeking abortions in Oklahoma will continue to have access to non-invasive treatment options that use medications in accordance with scientific evidence, sound medical judgment, and advances in medicine, due to the decision issued Friday by Oklahoma County District Judge Donald Worthington.
The Oklahoma Legislature's decision to deal with ectopic pregnancies? Let's kill both the fetus AND the mother. We can kill two birds with one stone. And they have the unmitigated audacity to claim they are right to life? Ha!! Thankfully, a judge has permanently put an end to this farce before their religious nuttery was able to kill anybody.
