SB 764 would make it a felony for any person to intentionally, knowingly or recklessly violate any provision or requirement of Section 1-729a et seq. of Title 63 of the Oklahoma Statutes, the section of state law related to the regulation of Mifepristone RU-486 and other abortion-inducing drugs.

The bill provides that no criminal penalty may be assessed against the pregnant patient upon whom the abortion is performed for a violation of any provision or requirement of Section 1-729a et seq. of Title 63.

Any violation of law regarding abortion-inducing drugs may be subject to a civil penalty or a fine up to $100,000.00.

The bill details what a court should consider when deciding whether and to what extent to impose fines.

The bill provides that the Office of the Attorney General and a district attorney for the county in which the violation or violations occurred may institute a legal action to enforce collection of civil penalties or fines.

Any person who violates this act or any provision of state law regarding drug-induced abortions would be civilly liable to the person or persons adversely affected by the violation or violations.
