Supreme Court Won't Hear Case To Revive Oklahoma's Ultrasound Law

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