8.4.22 (PRESS STATEMENT) – Today, the Center for Reproductive Rights and Boies Schiller Flexner LLP, along with local counsel Ellie Schilling, filed an emergency writ to the Louisiana Supreme Court, asking the court to reinstate a preliminary injunction blocking the state’s trigger bans. The bans took effect on Monday after a state appellate court ordered the district court to lift the preliminary injunction it had issued. Abortion is currently unavailable in the state.
Quote from Jenny Ma, Senior Staff Attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights:
“We have asked the state Supreme Court to step in and block these bans once again. This legal ping pong is causing chaos for doctors trying to provide care in healthcare clinics and hospitals across Louisiana. It’s inhumane to have patients living in fear of whether or not they will be able to access reproductive healthcare. If the Court does not act, many people will suffer, and too many have nowhere else to go. These bans must be blocked while this case is litigated in court.”
