Oklahoma Court Tosses Abortion Law on Hospital Privileges
ROE V. WADE
Oklahoma's Supreme Court on Tuesday threw out a law that would have required doctors working at abortion clinics to obtain hospital admitting privileges. Those who supported the legislation argued that it protected the health of women who sought care at the facilities, but the court ruled that such a measure would violate the U.S. Constitution by putting an undue burden on access to the procedure. The ruling overturns a decision made by the lower court in February, which upheld the controversial measure.
