OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma's justices have told the nation's highest court that a 2011 law they struck down as unconstitutional effectively bans all drug-induced abortions in the state.
The finding Tuesday came in response to questions from the U.S. Supreme Court, which has agreed to review the case. Some legal experts say the clarification likely dooms the law's chances of being upheld by the high court.
The U.S. Supreme Court had asked Oklahoma justices to clarify whether the state law applied to three specific drugs that can cause abortions, including one commonly known as RU-486. In all cases, the Oklahoma court answered yes.
The state attorney general and bill's sponsor said the Oklahoma Supreme Court misinterpreted the intent of the law.
