Oklahoma Governor Signs Texas-Style Ban on Most Abortions | app

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Republican Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a Texas-style abortion ban on Tuesday that bans abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy, part of a nationwide push in the GOP-led states in hopes that the conservative US Supreme Court will uphold new restrictions.

Stitt’s signing of the bill follows a leaked draft opinion from the country’s High Court that he is considering watering down or overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade who legalized abortion almost 50 years ago.
