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!”
Sure, one party wants women to live and the other wants women to die, but there’s always the Supreme Court and Democrats aren’t perfect on my given issues of the day so I just can’t sully myself to vote for them. Of course, this seems to be the kind of position that can get you a sweet job at Vox.
