The state judge blocked enforcement of a statewide abortion ban that was already on the books and automatically went into effect after Roe was overturned. The state’s three abortion centers have declared they will resume the procedure as a result.
The Center for Reproductive Rights requested emergency relief from the law’s effects and asked the court to clarify what the law’s practical implementation looked like, according to The Hill.
“In a stunning state of affairs, the day Dobbs was issued, state and local officials issued conflicting statements about whether and which trigger laws were actually in effect and thus what conduct—if any—was prohibited. Due process requires more,” the groups wrote in a statement Monday.
A hearing has been set for the case on July 8th.
The state’s attorney general, Jeff Landry, has not publicly commented at this time.
