Today SCOTUS declined to hear an appeal (Walker-McGill v. Stuart) that would make abortion clinics show women the results of their ultrasound before the women decided to perform an abortion–even if they didn’t want to know the results. The law did not include any exception for cases of rape, incest or severe fetal anomalies. SCOTUS left in place the law that gave doctors more freedoms. North Carolina is one of 23 states with ultrasound laws for abortion clinics.
