Judge Robin Giarrusso in Louisiana has just blocked a Louisiana law banning abortion from taking effect.
Not long after, a Utah state judge Andrew Stone did the same with their trigger law.
Via NBC News:
Judges in Louisiana and Utah on Monday temporarily blocked prohibitions on abortion in their states following last week’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling that ends a national right to the procedure.
The high court on Friday overturned Roe v. Wade, which for nearly 50 years had granted women the constitutional right to an abortion. More than a dozen states set so-called trigger laws which were written to take immediate effect, banning or severely limiting abortions, in the event Roe v. Wade was overturned.
A Louisiana judge on Monday issued a temporary restraining order against the state from enforcing its ban on abortions, leading to the immediate resumption of the procedure.
Orleans Parish Civil District Court Judge Robin Giarrusso granted the request of plaintiffs Hope Medical Group For Women and Medical Students for Choice.
Hours later on Monday, Utah Third District Judge Judge Andrew Stone halted that state’s trigger law-enabled abortion ban, effective immediately, under a 14-day temporary restraining order requested by the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah.
“There is irreparable harm that has been shown,” Stone said in granting the order. “Affected women are deprived of safe, local medical treatments to terminate pregnancies.”
I love this ‘irreparable harm’ argument for the women. It’s ridiculous. The irreparable harm has always been to the unborn baby being murdered in the womb. But these liberal judges won’t admit that because they’ve bought into the pro-baby-murder propaganda.
Look, if a brainwashed woman is dumb enough to undergo an illegal abortion with some sidewalk doctor and it goes bad and harms her or even worse, then that’s on her. I would hate to see any of it, especially due to the outrageous misinformation being spewed 24/7 right now by Democrat politicians, media figures and liberal news outlets. But a woman so compelled to illegally abort her child because of her so-called ‘right’, then let it be on her head.
It’s not right to stop a law that saves the lives of the innocent because some bone-headed woman is going to try and use a coat hanger so she can have her ‘reproductive freedom’.
