Oklahoma judge blocked law restricting use of abortion pills
Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On October 19, 2011, an Oklahoma state court issued an injunction against a recently passed law that restricted the use of abortion-inducing drugs. Those opposed to the law stated that the restriction violated the equal protection clause of the Oklahoma Constitution. Oklahoma passed a law in March 2011 that permitted abortions to be performed after the twentieth week of pregnancy only in certain extenuating circumstances, such as the mother facing serious injury or her life being at risk.
