Judge Denies Motion to Reconsider Oklahoma Forced Ultrasound Bill, But State Keeps Pushing


Oklahoma Judge Bryan Dixon has denied a motion to reconsider the ruling on the state’s forced ultrasound law, which was found unconstitutional earlier this year.

Via NECN.com:

District Judge Bryan Dixon rejected a motion filed by Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s office to reconsider his decision in an order filed in the court clerk’s office on Tuesday.

In March, Dixon invalidated a law requiring women seeking abortions to have an ultrasound image placed in front of them and listen to a detailed description of the fetus before the procedure.

The Oklahoma Attorney General has already vowed to keep pursuing court challenges, despite the mounting costs of litigation, which at last count was over $145,000.
