Oklahoma’s New Mandatory Ultrasound Law Under Temporary Restraining Order

Robin Marty

Oklahoma's mandatory ultrasound law is now on hold until July due to a temporary restraining order.

Oklahoma’s newly passed mandatory ultrasound bill will not be enforced, as the Oklahoma Attorney General agreed to a court order requested by pro-choice advocates to temporarily block the law. 

The agreement was announced Monday, before a scheduled hearing in Oklahoma County District Court on the request for a temporary restraining order by the Center for Reproductive Rights. District Judge Noma Gurich said attorneys for both sides told her they would accept the order.

Gurich says she will now schedule a hearing for sometime in July on a request for a temporary injunction against the law. An injunction would extend the restraining order. She said she expected to sign the temporary restraining order later Monday.
