Tulsa Women’s Reproductive Clinic v. Hunter [abortion reversal]


The Center for Reproductive Rights filed a lawsuit on behalf of abortion providers in Oklahoma, challenging a law that forces doctors to tell their patients that medication abortion can be “reversed”—a claim that remains unproven by science.

SB 614 requires abortion providers to inform patients of this information at least 72 hours before their appointment—at the risk of criminal penalty, civil fines, and liability for civil damages.

Plaintiffs allege that the law violates the Oklahoma Constitution’s free speech protections by forcing physicians to convey controversial government-mandated messages and non-medical statements with which they disagree.

Status

On October 24, 2019, Oklahoma County District Court Judge Don Andrews ruled from the bench, temporarily blocking the law from taking effect.
