OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A bill to further restrict the use of abortion inducing drugs in Oklahoma has overwhelmingly cleared the Oklahoma House.

The House voted 81-8 Monday for the bill by Edmond Republican Rep. Randy Grau. Grau's previous attempt to regulate the use of the drugs was struck down by the Oklahoma Supreme Court last year as unconstitutional.

Grau contends the state's high court erred, and his bill specifically states its intent is to "overrule the decision of the Oklahoma Supreme Court."

The bill amends several definitions in Oklahoma, including abortion and abortion inducing drugs.

Grau's intent is to require doctors to administer drugs only in accordance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration protocol, a law that would prohibit the use of certain abortion inducing drugs.
