Hoping to stigmatize, criminalize and otherwise terrorize women seeking
abortions, the wise and compassionate legislators of Oklahoma have
passed a law that mandates recording and publishing
on a public website the details of each abortion performed there. No

marital status etc - to out any woman in a small community. Fighting
the bill are two Oklahoma lawyers and the Center for Reproductive
Rights, which earlier helped defeat a proposed law to require doctors
to verbally describe the ultrasound image of her fetus to any woman seeking an abortion. What's next, hair shirts?
