Louisiana Right to Life Responds to Today’s U.S. Supreme Court Decision

New Orleans – Today, in a 6-3 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court returned a case to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals finding that Idaho’s law, which addresses when emergency abortions can be performed, needed further litigation by the lower court.

Sarah Zagorski, the Communications Director for Louisiana Right to Life, has provided the following statement on their decision and any potential impact in Louisiana:

“Louisiana’s pro-life law empowers physicians to care for women in medical emergencies. Today’s Supreme Court decision to return the Idaho case to the lower court does not alter Louisiana’s commitment to care for mothers and babies. We will continue to follow this case as it proceeds through the courts.”
