The Center for Reproductive Rights is asking the Oklahoma County District Court to temporarily block a new law.

The new law is set to take effect next Friday, November 1, 2019. However, the case is scheduled to be heard on Wednesday at 1:30 p.m.

An Oklahoma abortion clinic is asking the state Supreme Court to review a district judge's decision in July to uphold a ban on a second-trimester abortion procedure.

It would require doctors to tell patients that medication abortions can be reversed; a claim the group says is not scientifically supported.

The Tulsa Women's Reproductive Clinic is now requesting an injunction to put the law on hold.
