Oklahoma Plans To Spend Yet More Money Appealing Recent Ultrasound Ruling


Celebration over the ruling last week that Oklahoma’s mandatory ultrasound bill is unconstitutional and will not go into effect may be short lived. Attorney General Scott Pruitt is announcing plans to appeal the decision, and it’s unclear where that appeals process would end.

Via News Ok:

“The law is about presenting abortion accurately with full information about the outcome,” Pruitt said in a statement.

“We have an obligation to protect our citizens and make sure abortion is held to the same standard as any medically informed decision.”

According to the paper, the state has already spent $145,000 on outside legal counsel.
