Oklahoma's governor signs a law ban abortion

As part of an aggressive push in Republican-led states across the country to restrict abortion rights, Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill on Tuesday that makes performing an abortion a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

An abortion that saves the life of the mother is the only exception made by the bill, which comes into effect 90 days after the Legislature adjourns next month. Advocates for abortion rights say the GOP governor's legislation will be challenged in court.
