Fetuses, then and now 

Remember
the last time abortion matters consumed the state Legislature? It was
2010 — what a coincidence, another election year — when lawmakers
overrode then-Gov. Brad Henry’s veto of a bill prohibiting a woman from
getting an abortion unless she has an ultrasound of the fetus and either
views the image herself or has a doctor describe it to her. A state
judge suspended the would-be law shortly after its constitutionality was
challenged by the Center for Reproductive Rights.

A
hearing for summary judgment is slated Friday in Oklahoma County
District Court. Perhaps not surprisingly, a CRR spokeswoman noted that
the Personhood bill is “high on the radar” of measures they’re
monitoring.
