    The Supreme Court on Monday left in place a Kentucky law, mandating doctors perform ultrasounds and show fetal images to patients before they can perform abortions.

    The high court declined, without comment, to hear an appeal brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the state's lone abortion clinic.


    The Kentucky law, which requires a doctor to describe an ultrasound in detail while a pregnant woman hears the fetal heartbeat, was passed in 2017.

    It was signed by Gov. Matt Bevin, an anti-abortion Republican who lost his bid for re-election last month.

    "This is a HUGE win for the pro-life movement!" the Kentucky GOP tweeted on Monday, thanking Bevin and Republican lawmakers. "This decision by SCOTUS to allow the lower court ruling to stand is a victory for the unborn!"

    This is great news!!! I’ve seen studies that find that women who see the ultrasound are far less likely to abort.

    Many lives saved.

    Peace to you

    How is this an "except"? "If they want to avoid the speech" by acting like Stephen's stoners, then that is their right, but at least the abortionist is legally obligated to do this one right thing regardless. Such a small "price" to pay before taking the life of the innocent little one.
