Oklahoma lawmakers gave final approval yesterday to a bill banning abortion at any point during pregnancy, a measure likely to establish the most wide-ranging restrictions on the procedure in the US. The legislation—which provides exceptions for cases of rape and incest reported to police, and to save the mother’s life—heads to Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) for signature. 

The state previously made performing the procedure a felony, while the current bill also allows private citizens to bring lawsuits against anyone suspected of aiding and abetting an abortion. The text (read here under “versions” tab) suggests prescription medication to end pregnancy is also prohibited. 

The legislation comes as the Supreme Court appears to be leaning toward overturning Roe v. Wade, effectively allowing states to regulate the procedure on their own. A final ruling is expected by early July at the latest.
