WASHINGTON – Abortion is legal again in Louisiana after a state court on Tuesday issued a restraining order against state sanctions following the U.S. Supreme Court’s Row v. Wade lawsuit. Abolition Wade is effective.
The court order allowed the resumption of abortion services in the state until at least July 18. This is the latest legal twist in Louisiana’s abortion ban, which a district judge temporarily blocked last month.
The attorney general sought the intervention of the state Supreme Court and remand in the lower court. Another judge there, Ethel S. Julian, ruled Friday that New Orleans courts are not authorized to uphold the law because the case was transferred to Baton Rouge State Court.
The move paves the way for the state’s trigger law to take effect immediately and blocks the activities of abortion clinics in the state.
The abortion ban remained in effect until Baton Rouge District Judge Donald Johnson handed down the verdict on Tuesday. The Reproductive Rights Center, one of the parties to the action, has asked the Baton Rouge court to block the ban more permanently.
“This is an incredible relief for those in Louisiana who need abortion treatment. In today’s state, abortion treatment can be resumed, to avoid further irreparable damage.”
Jenny Ma, a senior lawyer at the Center for Reproductive Rights, said in a statement on Tuesday. “Our work continues and we look forward to a hearing on Monday, where we will ask the judge to ban the ban more permanently.”
Meanwhile, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff. Laundry tweeted from a verified account on Tuesday. He has repeatedly said that not only legally, but also constitutionally, directly through the ballot box and through the elected parliament. ”
“I’m disappointed that the judiciary is creating a legal circus, and I don’t believe in the institutions we rely on for a stable society,” Laundry said. “The rule of law must be upheld, and I will not rest until it becomes a reality. Unfortunately, I have to wait a little longer.”
Supreme Court majority vote, landmark Row v. Wade case. Wade, who established the federal right to abortion, called on states like Louisiana to implement their own abortion laws.
The Supreme Court ruling, as expected, has already created a nationwide patchwork quilt, and access to many people’s processes is largely determined by the state’s dominance by Republicans or Democrats. Increase.
