If you believe that women have a right to privacy.
An Oklahoma judge Friday put off until Feb. 19 any decision about an anti-abortion law that critics have said is “like undressing a woman in public.”
The law, which was to have gone into effect on Nov. 1, requires doctors performing abortions to ask the patient 37 questions – from her age to her marital status and financial condition – which would then be posted on a public website.
Supporters of the bill say the information is crucial to understanding why women have abortions. Opponents say the questions are invasive and the public posting of the answers could easily lead to women being identified in rural parts of the state, even though their names are not used.
Lora Joyce Davis, one of the women bringing the lawsuit, told ABC: “It's like undressing women in public, exposing their most personal issues on the Internet.”
