The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday changed course and decided not to review a state law that regulates the abortion-inducing drug RU-486.
The high court had been waiting for the Oklahoma Supreme Court to clarify its December 2012 ruling that voided the law before deciding on whether to rule on the case.
The court's latest action means an Oklahoma Supreme Court ruling last week is final. That ruling said that the state law had the effect of banning abortion-inducing drugs altogether.
