Oklahoma law on morning-after pill ruled unconstitutional

Morning After Pill 3

OKLAHOMA CITY – Another Oklahoma Law has been ruled unconstitutional.

It’s a bill that would implement more requirements from Oklahoma women trying to get the morning-after pill.

Thursday an Oklahoma County judge ruled the legislation is unconstitutional.

Friday the judge is barring the state from enforcing the legislation.

The law was originally passed last spring.

It required women 17 and older to provide identification to a pharmacist in order to get the “Plan B” pill and generic emergency contraceptives.

It also required women under 17 to have a prescription to get the pill.

The law was blocked before it could go into effect.
