Louisiana Judge Allows Abortions To Resume In State, For Now

Tuesday, a judge in Louisiana temporarily permitted abortions amid a legal back-and-forth following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The judge’s order prevented the state from implementing a nearly total ban on abortions for the second time.

While a prominent legal challenge is being pursued in the state’s capital, Baton Rouge, Judge Donald Johnson issued a temporary restraining order suspending the state’s abortion restrictions. In order to prevent the state’s three abortion restrictions from taking effect last month, one judge had already issued a temporary restraining order. However, this week, another judge ruled that the court lacked the authority to do so, thereby making abortions once again illegal.

Johnson’s most recent decision effectively permits the state’s abortion services to resume up until at least July 18, when he holds a hearing on the subject.

Louisianans and abortion providers are scurrying as they learn how to function in the state’s post-Roe system as a result of the legal manoeuvres. The inconsistent rulings, according to one of the state’s few surviving abortion clinics in Shreveport, were described as “crazy” and “stressful” by the New York Times, who also highlighted that the facility will restart services for at least the next three days.

Jeff Landry, the attorney general for Louisiana, slammed the judge’s decision, claiming that the people “have spoken both directly at the ballot box and via their elected legislature repeatedly.”

Landry commented on Twitter, “It is distressing to see the judiciary create a legal circus and what discredits the institutions we rely upon for a peaceful society. “The law must be upheld, and I won’t stop until it is. We will, however, have to wait a little longer for it to occur.

He stated, “Any civilization that puts itself before its offspring (the future) does not last.


The decision was praised by pro-abortion organisations as being “an great relief for people who need abortion care right now in Louisiana.”

Jenny Ma, a senior staff attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights, issued a statement saying, “Abortion care in the state can resume today, and more irreparable harm has been spared.” “Our work is still ongoing, and we are looking forward to our hearing on Monday where we will ask the judge to temporarily halt the prohibitions. Every minute and every day that a clinic is still able to provide abortion treatment significantly improves the lives of those who get it.

One of many states with so-called trigger laws in place, Louisiana had abortion restrictions take effect as soon as the conservative majority on the Supreme Court decided to overturn Roe v. Wade last month. However, healthcare providers swiftly filed a lawsuit to prevent them from proceeding.

According to a New York Times story, Louisiana’s State Constitution does not guarantee the right to an abortion, giving legislators the power to enact regulations that limit the practise. However, abortion clinics and women’s rights organisations have filed a lawsuit, claiming that the trigger laws are “void for ambiguity” and violate due process.

The laws make an exception for people who have “medically futile” pregnancies, but they don’t specify what that term means or what circumstances would make someone eligible for an abortion, according to The Associated Press.

The legislation does not make an exception for rape or incest victims.
