OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma, October 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – The Oklahoma Supreme Court has temporarily blocked a pro-life law that was supposed to take effect on Sunday.

According to The Associated Press, the court sided with the Center for Reproductive Justice to halt a law with four pro-life components: parental consent for minors, clinic inspections, liability for abortionists, and preservation of tissue.

The Associated Press reports that the Center's legal argument alleges that the pro-life law violates the state constitution, which says that legislation can address only one subject.

A spokesperson for Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin criticized the decision, telling LifeSiteNews that “the majority of Oklahomans are pro-life, and they continue to elect officials who are actively involved in expanding protections for the unborn.”

“It is disappointing to once again see the courts ignore the will of the people and side with a New York City-based special interest group that exists to promote abortion,” said Alex Weintz.

The decision is the second this month to halt pro-life measures in Oklahoma. Nearly two weeks ago, a law banning second-trimester dismemberment abortions was declared unconstitutional, though a 72-hour waiting period law was upheld by the same judge.
