Stephanie Whiteside at said, “You should absolutely read this article on what Oklahoma's restrictive abortion laws look like in practice.” Kay Steiger at Raw Story wrote, “Awesome @irin piece on how abortion restrictions play out in the real world of conservative Oklahoma.” Richard Wolffe at MSNBC added, “Think you know how bad the GOP is for women? Think again. This is a must-read by @irin.” Jamelle Bouie with Daily Beast admitted, “Oklahoma’s ‘culture of life,’ sounds like a culture of cruelty.”
