Supreme Court won’t hear Oklahoma case about pre-abortion ultrasound

- Associated Press - Tuesday, November 12, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to revive Oklahoma's strict ultrasound law for women seeking abortions.

The justices said Tuesday they will let stand a state Supreme Court ruling that struck down the 2010 law passed by the Oklahoma Legislature.

The measure required women seeking abortions to have an ultrasound exam and then have the image placed in front of them while the provider described the fetus.

Last week, the justices opted to let stand an Oklahoma court decision that struck down a separate law restricting drug-induced abortions.

The case is Pruitt v. Nova Health Systems, 12-1170.
