The U.S. Supreme Court has decided not to review a decision last week that struck down the 2011 Oklahoma law requiring women to have ultrasounds before abortions.

The state of Oklahoma had asked the Supreme Court to review the Oklahoma state Supreme Court's ruling banning enforcement of the law to require women to undergo ultrasounds and hear a state-mandated script.

It is the second time the Supreme Court has declined to step into the Oklahoma abortion battle. Last week the justices opted not to take up the Oklahoma law banning medication abortion, which was also halted by the Oklahoma state Supreme Court.
