Louisiana |  A judge has overturned a ban on abortion, the first move by the new judiciary

(Washington) A Louisiana judge on Monday temporarily suspended laws banning women from having abortions in the state, sparking confusion in the United States since the Supreme Court overturned the ruling.

On Friday, the High Court said, “Roy v. Wade ”For almost 50 years American women have been guaranteed the right to terminate their pregnancies, giving states the freedom to prohibit abortions.

Many people immediately rush to declare abortions illegal in their territory, especially those who have relied on laws that have hitherto been dormant. Others hope to reduce the delay for abortion.

But legal resistance was quicker with complaints filed in state courts than in federal courts.

In Louisiana, a clinic and medical students attacked three laws banning abortions, arguing that they were too “vague” because they did not explicitly state exemptions or associated penalties.

Judge Robin Giarusso on Monday stayed the proceedings until July 8.

“Abortions can be resumed in Louisiana,” the Center for Reproductive Rights, which represented the plaintiffs, immediately tweeted.

“Having the clinic open every day changes one’s life,” said Nancy Northup, president of the clinic, in a statement.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Laundry “promised that everything would be done, but this victory could only be short-lived. [son] The power to enforce laws protecting unborn children “.

Similar struggles are taking place across the country. In Utah, a powerful family planning group filed a complaint Saturday against a ban on abortion on the grounds that Planned Parenthood violates the state constitution.

The same argument was put forward by opponents of a law that would reduce the legal deadline for abortion in Florida to 15 weeks, which goes into effect Friday.

Other policies take place mainly in Ohio or Kentucky.

This guerrilla deadline should be delayed but, according to the Guttmacher Institute, half the states, especially the southern and center conservative and religious, should more or less ban abortions on their soil for the long term.
