OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A judge has refused to dissolve a temporary restraining order that blocks enforcement of a new Oklahoma abortion law.

Dionne Scott with the Center for Reproductive Rights says Oklahoma County District Judge Twyla Mason Gray on Thursday denied a motion by the state of Oklahoma to set aside the restraining order, which she issued on October 21.

The law, set to go into effect on Sunday, would have required doctors to report personal information about women who have abortions to the state Health Department and post the information on a public Web site.

The center and two Oklahomans filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction, alleging the law violates a constitutional requirement that legislative measures deal only with one subject.

A hearing on the injunction is set for December 4.
