The Louisiana Supreme Court punted on its responsibility!
In a 4-2 decision, the Louisiana Supreme Court denied AG Jeff Landry’s petition to dissolve the Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) obtained by a Shreveport abortionist. The court's inaction allows abortion to continue in Louisiana…for the moment.
The majority decision to delay enforcement of Louisiana law was made by Justices Scott Crichton (2nd District - Shreveport-Bossier), Jeff Hughes (5th District- Baton Rouge), James Genovese (3rd District- Acadiana and Lake Charles), and Piper Griffin (7th District - Orleans).
Justice Will Crain (1st District - Northshore and Jefferson) and Jay McCallum (4th District - Monroe and Alexandria) correctly would have dissolved the TRO allowing Louisiana life laws to take effect. Chief Justice Weimer (6th District - Bayou Parishes) recused himself.
The Louisiana Supreme Court could have saved unborn lives and time by simply lifting the TRO and allowing the Louisiana law to go into effect while the process answers the “vague and ambiguous” question, which will return to this court. Justice Crain correctly warned his collogues, “everyday this temporary restraining order remains in place leads to more babies lost from abortion.”
Chief Justice Weimer’s recusal lacked courage and Justice Jeff Hugh’s decision will be difficult to explain back home!
Today, Attorney General Jeff Landry will be in district court in Orleans Parish to seek removal of the TRO and implementation of the Louisiana law.
Make no mistake: Abortion, Inc. has been evicted from Louisiana by law. The only question which these proceedings will answer is the effective date!
