An Oklahoma County judge on Friday ruled against a longtime abortion doctor who says he will have to shut down his clinic once a new law goes into effect Nov. 1.
Dr. Larry A. Burns, founder of the Abortion Surgery Center in Norman, complains the law is unconstitutional for a number of reasons.
The doctor’s attorneys last week asked District Judge Bill Graves to put the law on hold until the constitutional challenges to it can be resolved.
Graves refused Friday to issue either a temporary restraining order or temporary injunction. In a four-page order, the judge found the doctor failed to show he is likely to succeed on the merits of his constitutional claims.
The doctor’s attorneys now plan to file an emergency appeal with the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
The new law will require an abortion clinic to be staffed by a doctor who has permission from a nearby hospital to admit a patient if something goes wrong. Burns has applied to 16 hospitals within 30 miles of the clinic for admitting privileges. He has not been accepted yet.
"If I am unable to obtain admitting privileges from any of these hospitals by November 1, I will be forced to shutter my clinic on that day, and Oklahoma women will have one fewer safe place to turn to for the care they need," Burns said in a court affidavit.

May 13, 2014, marks one year since Philadelphia abortion Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted of first-degree murder “in the deaths of three babies who were delivered alive and then killed with scissors at his grimy, ‘house of horrors’ clinic,” according to the Associated Press. Gosnell instantly became the face of abortion in the prolife community.
But there’s another, more recognizable face pushing abortion in the U.S. – liberal billionaire Warren Buffett. The so-called “Oracle of Omaha” has donated more than $1.2 billion to abortion organizations from 2001 to 2012.
FORT WAYNE, IN, April 23, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Police in Indiana have filed two counts of child molestation against a 21-year-old man, despite the fact that an abortionist did not report his 13-year-old victim's abortion to state authorities in the manner required by law.
