(Before It's News)

An ultrasound abortion case will not be heard by the United States Supreme. The high court announced earlier this week that it would not consider a North Carolina “narrated ultrasound” law which has become highly controversial. The law would have required woman to undergo the specific type of ultrasound before the termination of the pregnancy could begin.

The U.S. Supreme Court issued just a one-sentence order in the ultrasound abortion ruling. Such a practice, as well as giving no reason for the refusal, is reportedly customary. Justice Antonin Scalia dissented, but also did not note a reason for the decision. A total of 10 states currently have laws which require women to hear the heartbeat of their unborn baby before having an abortion. Pro-choice activists have claimed that such laws “personify the fetus” and make abortions more expensive. Click here to read more about the abortion ultrasound case.
