USF Law Professor Maya Manian on Oklahoma's rejected abortion law | USF in the News | Scoop.it

"Oklahoma’s highest court struck down a law Tuesday that justices say imposed an unconstitutional restriction on a woman’s right to have an abortion. The Oklahoma Supreme Court’s unanimous decision to strike down the law is a victory for abortion rights activists, who say that the statute might have led to the undue anxiety for individuals who required or provided abortions."

...

"But Oklahoma's legislation stands apart, as Maya Manian, a University of San Francisco law professor who lectures and writes about abortion writes, told The Christian Science Monitor in May. 

"This law is more blatantly unconstitutional," Dr. Manian told the Monitor at the time. "Criminalizing the act of abortion is a more direct attack on abortion rights," which "will never be immediately struck out as long as Roe v. Wade is good law."
