Today, the United States Supreme Court decided to listen to arguments on a Louisiana law that requires physicians performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. The Court stepped in to temporarily block the law from taking effect earlier this year.
The future of abortion access in Louisiana is in the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Today, Lift Louisiana was back in court defending a Louisiana abortion clinic from burdensome regulations and holding state government officials accountable to the people. Last December, a district court ruled that the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) had not substantially complied with state law when the agency promulgated the regulations. The state appealed that ruling and Louisiana’s First Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments in the case today.
