Oklahoma bans some abortions in state hospitals

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry allowed an anti-abortion bill to become law on Wednesday by taking no action on the legislation.

The passage of the measure makes Oklahoma the only state this year to pass legislation that would prohibit certain abortions in state-funded medical facilities, according to a research institute.

If a bill passes the Legislature, it becomes law after five days if the governor does not either sign or veto it during the legislative session. Wednesday marked the fifth day since Henry received the bill.
