OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma Supreme Court has thrown out a law requiring abortion clinics to have doctors with admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

The court said Tuesday that efforts to portray the measure as protecting women’s health are a “guise.”

The law would have required a doctor with admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles be present for any abortion.
