Good News

After previously declining to take up a major medication abortion case out of Oklahoma, the US Supreme Court has also declined to take up another state restriction out of the state which had been ruled unconstitutional by a lower court:
The top court rejected a request from officials in Oklahoma who wanted to reverse a state court decision to strike down a law requiring any woman seeking an abortion to first see an ultrasound image of the fetus.

The decision Tuesday leaves intact an Oklahoma Supreme Court ruling that struck down the law on the basis that it ran counter to the top court's precedent on abortion restrictions and placed an unconstitutional burden on abortion rights.
Tough luck, anti-choicers.
