Supreme Court Lets Stand Anti-Abortion Kentucky Law

HeadlineDec 10, 2019

The Supreme Court has refused to hear a challenge to a Kentucky law that requires doctors perform ultrasounds and show fetal images to patients before they can perform abortions. The refusal to hear the American Civil Liberties Union’s appeal on behalf of Kentucky’s only abortion clinic means the anti-abortion law remains in place. Pro-choice advocates argue the law has no medical basis whatsoever and that its only aim is to coerce women into not having an abortion.
