In this article from The Advocate, Julie Rikelman, senior litigation director at the Center for Reproductive Rights, comments, “Louisiana has spent immense resources and taxpayer money on this six-year Court battle. Despite losing this case at the Supreme Court last summer, the State has continued to litigate it and waste even more taxpayer funds. The State is also still fighting tooth and nail to defend other unconstitutional abortion restrictions in court. This time and money should be spent on real issues in Louisiana, like addressing the state’s maternal mortality crisis or the impacts of the COVID pandemic.” Rikelman argued the June Medical Services v. Russo case before the Supreme Court.
