SB 606 would amend Oklahoma’s Heartbeat Informed Consent Act. The bill would require a person who intends to perform an abortion on a pregnant woman to determine if there is the presence of a fetal heartbeat according to standard medical practice.

No later than twenty-four (24) hours prior to the performance of the intended abortion, the abortion provider would have to inform the pregnant woman that the “unborn human individual” has a heartbeat and inform her of the statistical probability of bringing the “unborn human individual” to term. The pregnant woman would be required to sign a form acknowledging that she has received the information.
