Last week the Supreme Court granted requests to hear the challenges to SB 8, the law which has decimated abortion access in Texas, setting oral arguments in both cases for November 1. The Court decided NOT to block the law while they consider these cases. We look forward to patients and providers having their day in court, but it’s devastating that the Supreme Court has allowed this blatantly unconstitutional law to remain in place.
BATON ROUGE, LA - Reproductive health, rights, and justice advocates have filed suit in state court in Baton Rouge, challenging a Louisiana law that will delay or even preclude abortion access for young people by implementing harmful restrictions that limit young people’s access to the court system.
Governor Edwards has signed two controversial abortion bills, HB 578 and HB 357, meaning both bills will become laws. We at Lift Louisiana are extremely disappointed in Governor Edwards’ action which will result in physicians being forced to deliver to their patients deceitful information and more young people struggling to access abortion through judicial bypass.
