OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — About 250 demonstrators marched on Oklahoma's state Capitol to protest legislation restricting reproductive rights.
UniteWomen.org organized "United Against the War on Women" marches and rallies across the nation Saturday in response to bills that it perceives as attacking reproductive and voting rights.
Demonstrators said measures such as the personhood act take away a woman's control over her own body. Senate Bill 1433 would declare that life begins at conception. Protesters said they want lawmakers to focus on education and health care issues.

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A judge has ruled a tribe seeking to build a casino in Broken Arrow can't use sovereign immunity as an argument to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the Oklahoma Attorney General's office.
U.S. District Judge Gregory Frizzell on Thursday accepted the state's argument that Kialegee Tribal Town's corporate charter allows it "to sue and be sued." Frizzell also noted that Congress nullified tribal immunity from lawsuits involving gaming activities.
