OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma wants to force hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants and public schools to post signs inside public restrooms that tell pregnant women where to receive services.

It's part of an effort to reduce abortions in the state.

The State Board of Health will consider regulations for the signs today.

Businesses and other organizations will have to pay an estimated $2.3 million to put up the signs because the Legislature didn't approve any money for them.
