OKLAHOMA CITY — A judge denied a request for an injunction Monday as a lawsuit aimed to block a handful of incoming laws that would restrict abortions in Oklahoma.

Five Oklahoma laws had been scheduled to take effect Nov. 1 entering Monday's hearing.

Oklahoma County Judge Cindy Truong shot down the injunction for the OB/GYN requirements and new regulations on abortion medication.

The court acknowledged the other two laws scheduled to take effect next month are likely unconstitutional under Roe v. Wade.

Those now-blocked laws would have prohibited abortions if a fetal heartbeat can be detected, and added abortion to a list of unprofessional conduct by doctors

The lawsuit looking to block the laws is backed by the Center for Reproductive Rights, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and other regional factions.

The plaintiffs are expected to appeal denied injunction to the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
