Abortion Law Goes to Court

Oklahoma City, OK – Oral arguments made in abortion lawsuit

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) An Oklahoma County judge has listened to oral arguments in a lawsuit over an Oklahoma law that requires women to have an ultrasound examination before getting an abortion.

Judge Vicki Robertson took the arguments under advisement Tuesday.

Tulsa's Reproductive Services filed a lawsuit in October challenging the constitutionality of the law which, among other things, requires women to listen to their doctor describe the image of their fetus revealed by the ultrasound.
