OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The nation's highest court is being asked to review a decision by Oklahoma's Supreme Court that invalidated a state anti-abortion law.
Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt said Monday that he filed papers on Friday asking the U.S. Supreme Court to set aside a ruling that struck down a state law requiring women seeking abortions to have an ultrasound image placed in front of them while they hear a description of the fetus.
The state Supreme Court ruled in December that the law, which received bipartisan support in the Legislature, violated a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court case and that lower court judges were right to block it.
Pruitt has also asked the U.S. Supreme Court to vacate another ruling that invalidated a law restricting the off-label use of certain abortion-inducing drugs.
