“For decades, its has been the unambiguous position of Louisiana citizens and our legislators to protect babies from abortion. Now, Roe v. Wade has been emphatically overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, providing clear authority to Louisiana to enforce its pro-life law. It is the responsibility and within the legal authority of the Louisiana Supreme Court to uphold our laws from empty legal challenges.
The Louisiana Supreme Court let Louisiana citizens down by not decisively defending our laws from pro-abortion delay tactics. Echoing Justice Crain’s compelling words, everyday this temporary restraining order remains in place leads to more babies lost from abortion.
We are also disappointed in Chief Justice Weimer’s recusal. This matter is too important for the Chief Justice to sit on the sidelines over a separate political matter between him and the Attorney General.
While these delays are a disgrace to our citizens, our legislators, and babies waiting to be born, we still remain confident that our pro-life laws will be upheld in time.”
