WASHINGTON- The Supreme Court is declining 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 2011 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.
