Attorney General Landry and legislators file brief in response to abortion business appeal

By Louisiana Right to Life

New Orleans – Last week, the Shreveport abortion facility, Hope Medical Group for Women, filed an appeal at the Louisiana Supreme Court. It challenged the Suspensive Appeal granted by the 1st Circuit Court of Appeal in the lawsuit against Louisiana’s 2006 Human Life Protection Act, as well as the recent 2022 Reaffirmation of Human Life Protection Act. The appeals court’s decision meant both laws could go back into effect. 

On Tuesday, Attorney General Landry filed his brief in opposition to the abortion plaintiff’s appeal, and yesterday, 79 legislators submitted an Amicus Brief in support of Attorney General Landry’s efforts. In the brief, they remind the Louisiana Supreme Court that “the Legislature of the State of Louisiana has long sought to protect the unborn and has consistently provided that abortion should be prohibited except in rare circumstances.”

“From the beginning, Shreveport’s abortion facility has been grasping at straws to keep their abortion business open, which is very profitable,” Executive Director of Louisiana Right to Life Benjamin Clapper said. “We commend Attorney General Landry and all the legislators who signed the Amicus Brief.”
