The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected an appeal to revive Oklahoma's ultrasound abortion law.
The law required women seeking abortions to have an ultrasound exam and then view the image while the provider described the fetus. A state court struck down the law.
Tuesday's decision by the high court means that ruling still stands.
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin was disappointed by the justices' ruling.
"The U.S. Supreme Court has prohibited states like Oklahoma from banning abortion, despite the fact that our citizens are overwhelmingly pro-life," she said in a statement. "Now the courts have taken their hostility to pro-life legislation a step further, prohibiting the state from providing more information to women about their unborn children."
Last week, the court also rejected the state's petition to re-instate a separate law that restricts drug-induced abortions.
