I want to share some great news coming from the United States Supreme Court this week.
LifeNews.com is reporting that the Supreme Court has decided not to hear a challenge to a Kentucky law that gives women the opportunity to see an ultrasound of their unborn baby before getting an abortion.
Ultrasounds are usually performed before abortions to determine the age, size, and development of the baby. Abortion clinics normally avoid allowing women to see their babies prior to an abortion because a mother is more likely to change her mind after she sees her child.
The challenge came from abortion activists at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which represents Kentucky's only abortion clinic – EMW Women's Surgical Center. The ACLU asked the courts to strike down the law.
The Kentucky Legislature passed the bill in 2017, and a federal judge struck it down almost immediately. Thankfully, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin appealed the judge's ruling.
In early 2019, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 that the ultrasound law helped provide "pertinent" information to a woman during her decision-making process.

We praise God that the Supreme Court upheld Kentucky's law that will protect our nation's most vulnerable and innocent lives.
Please pray that God will continue to lead the hearts of those who rule in matters that guarantee protection for unborn children.
