Admitting Privileges Law Could Be Enforced by End of Month
NEW ORLEANS, LA - Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry praised a federal court for their decision late last week to reject yet another court hearing on Act 620. General Landry’s Office has been defending the bipartisan law which requires abortion providers in Louisiana be able to admit patients at nearby hospitals in the event of complications.
“I applaud the Fifth Circuit’s decision to reject the abortion providers’ latest legal challenge to Louisiana’s pro-life and pro-woman admitting privileges law,” said General Landry. “Act 620 is common-sense measure that ensures women will receive proper care if they have complications.”
