Challenge to an Oklahoma law which prohibits a woman from getting an abortion unless she first has an ultrasound image and listens to her doctor describe the image in detail. In March 2012, the Oklahoma District Court struck down the law as unconstitutional. In December 2012, the Oklahoma Supreme Court affirmed, finding that the law violated the U.S. Constitution, as interpreted in Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Current Status: In March 2013, the OK Attorney General asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case. (See the law here. See the OK Supreme Court opinion here. Read more here.)
