Gov. Kevin Stitt will get to decide on a Texas-style anti-abortion bill that would take effect immediately upon his signature.

The Oklahoma House on Thursday gave final passage to Senate Bill 1503 that copies a restrictive anti-abortion law that took effect in Texas in September.

The law has forced thousands of Texans to seek abortions in neighboring states, including Oklahoma.

Saying SB 1503 could cause “irreparable harm,” to patients and health care workers, abortion providers asked the Oklahoma Supreme Court to block the bill from taking effect should it become law.

Although similar legal challenges were unsuccessful in Texas, providers expressed optimism there is enough precedent for Oklahoma’s high court to support their request for an emergency order.
