|New Orleans – As previously reported, the Shreveport abortion facility, Hope Medical Group for Women, filed a request with the Louisiana Supreme Court asking them to reverse the First Circuit Court of Appeals decision that shuttered the three abortion facilities in the state pending further legal challenges.
Today, the Louisiana Supreme Court denied the request, keeping the First Circuit’s decision in place. Louisiana’s pro-life laws will remain in effect pending further legal proceedings in the First Circuit Court of Appeals on the preliminary injunction.
Executive Director of Louisiana Right to Life Benjamin Clapper said the following about the Louisiana Supreme Court’s decision: “We are thankful that babies in Louisiana will continue to be protected from abortion while the abortion industry’s frivolous lawsuit plays out in court. Their lawsuit is disrespectful to our citizens and legislators who have made it clear for decades that we value life in the womb. “
