A Close Look Into Oklahoma’s Anti-Abortion Laws

Oklahoma’s Anti-Abortion Laws

Orthodox anti-abortion laws took effect after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade judgment in June ‘22.

A major inconvenience and question of safety have popped up ever since the controversial verdict has led to the shutting down of most abortion facilities in the country. 

Healthcare professionals are at crossroads after women seeking help and advice on abortion and basic reproductive healthcare have been rendered helpless. 

Members of the clergy, nurses, medical health professionals, librarians, social workers, and people from a wide professional range are fearing criminal and civil liability for even discussing the matter. 

The reversal of Roe v. Wade in June has thrown light upon the old anti-abortion law of 1910 in Oklahoma. The law declared attempts at aiding other women in abortion a felony which could be punishable by two to five years in prison. 

This controversial Oklahoma law allowed for the provisions of abortion only when the mother’s life was posed a risk by such pregnancy. 

Experts have claimed that the terms of the Act could make a spouse, an associate, a friend, and even an Uber driver liable to a felony if they provided any sort of information on abortion to the woman concerned. 

The original Roe v. Wade was a landmark judgment delivered by the Supreme Court that held that a woman’s right to safe abortions was protected by the Constitution of the United States

The judgment was reversed on the grounds of it failing to resonate with the traditions and history of the United States.
