US Supreme Court Upholds Abortion Restriction Law

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY Okla_ For the second time in two weeks, the US Supreme Court is letting stand a ruling by Oklahoma's Supreme Court striking down a law intended to further restrict abortions.

The 2011 law was passed by Oklahoma's legislature. The measure required women who want 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.
