Defending Life Spotlight

Oklahoma-DL-2021

Unsafe Spotlight

Oklahoma appears to either lack any regulatory framework for inspecting abortion businesses, or at least declines to make inspection reports public. AUL submitted a public records request, under the Oklahoma Open Records Act, 51 Okla. Stat. § 24A.1 et seq., to the Oklahoma State Department of Health, but received the response that all abortion facility records in the state of Oklahoma are confidential pursuant to § 63-1-709. That section provides that “Information received by the State Commissioner of Health through inspection or otherwise, authorized under the foregoing sections of this article, shall be confidential and shall not be disclosed publicly except in a proceeding involving the question of licensure or revocation or suspension of license.”
