Judge temporarily blocks Louisiana’s abortion ban

A Louisiana Judge in New Orleans on Monday issued a temporary restraining order blocking officials from enforcing the state’s newly activated abortion ban, restoring access to the procedure until further notice.

Judge Robin Giarrusso of New Orleans’ Civil District has upheld the ban while weighing a lawsuit filed by a group of abortion providers and reproductive rights organizations fighting Louisiana’s new abortion crackdown, which went into effect after the U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade got rid of. last week.

“People currently in need of an abortion are in a state of panic,” Nancy Northup, president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights, one of the plaintiffs, said in a statement. “We will fight as long as we can to restore access in Louisiana and other states. “Every day that a clinic is open and provides abortion services can make a difference in one’s life.”

The judge set another trial for July 8.

Louisiana’s Republican Attorney General Jeff Landry did not immediately return a request for comment. In remarks last week, he promised that anyone trying to overthrow the state’s abortion ban would be “in for a rough fight”.
