An Oklahoma County judge has denied a motion to reconsider a ruling that struck down an anti-abortion law.

District Judge Bryan Dixon rejected a motion filed by Attorney General Scott Pruitt's office to reconsider his decision in an order filed in the court clerk's office on Tuesday.

In March, Dixon invalidated a law requiring women seeking abortions to have an ultrasound image placed in front of them and listen to a detailed description of the fetus before the procedure.

Dixon ruled that the statute passed by the Oklahoma Legislature in 2010 is an unconstitutional special law and could not be enforced because it addresses only patients, physicians and sonographers dealing with abortions.

A spokeswoman for Pruitt's office, Diane Clay, says the ruling will be appealed to the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
