Thanks for LeighAnne Manwarren's article, "State of abortion" in the May 5, 2010, Gazette.
In part, the article explained that House Bill 2780 recently became law in Oklahoma but is on hold pending the outcome of a lawsuit filed by the Center for Reproductive Rights, New York.
This new law requires that a woman seeking an abortion must have an ultrasound within an hour of the procedure and listen to a detailed description of what the ultrasound shows. This procedure requires an instrument, called a transducer, to be inserted in her vagina if that method produces the best image.

May I add two paragraphs to the article?

A victim of rape and incest " for example, a pregnant 11-year-old child " is not exempt from this rape by instrumentation.

State Senate President Glenn Coffee says: "It is striking that a pro-abortion organization based in New York believes they know what is best for Oklahomans." It's a pro-choice (not pro-abortion) organization. But what Coffee does not say is that the lawyer he wants to hire is from Minnesota. She's Teresa Collett, Republican nominee in Minnesota's 4th Congressional District.

She has represented Coffee's position in two recent anti-choice bills: Senate Bill 1878, which Oklahoma County District Judge Vicki Robertson struck down as unconstitutional in August 2009, and House Bill 1595, which Oklahoma County District Judge Daniel L. Owens struck down as unconstitutional in February 2010.
