Oklahoma City — The state has asked the Oklahoma Supreme Court to deny the request from its genital rights supporters to put three abortion laws on hold.

The proceedings were filed after Judge Cindy Chuon of the Oklahoma County District appealed a decision by reproductive rights supporters that refused to suspend action until the outcome of a legal objection.

The three laws will come into effect on November 1.

House Bill 1904 requires abortors to be certified by the Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Senate Bill 778 and Senate Bill 779 impose additional restrictions on abortion.

According to the state overview, plaintiffs are unlikely to show that the due process provisions of the Oklahoma Constitution protect the right to abortion.

According to the state overview, OBGYN-certified doctors perform most abortions in the United States and Oklahoma.

Plaintiffs state that there is no medical basis for the law and that they will reduce the number of doctors offering abortion.

According to the state overview, the regulations are perfectly rational.

According to the state overview, the Oklahoma clinic will not be closed as a result.
