The following opinion was penned by Liz Murrill, Solicitor General for the State of Louisiana

As a mother of four, a former special counsel for Indian Affairs in the Governor’s Office, and now Louisiana’s solicitor general — I was surprised to see Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services Secretary Marketa Walters mischaracterizing a lawsuit Louisiana joined to protect Louisiana children.

The liberal bias is shining brightly at The Gambit, a New Orleans newspaper befitting fish wrap rather than news.

Attorney General Jeff Landry has repeatedly called for the rule of law to be followed in the State of Louisiana. Yet, when a hearing on the death penalty was recently conducted in Baton Rouge and family members of victims were allowed to testify, The Gambit called it a stunt on Landry's part and contrasted it to the "bold statement" from Gov. Gavin Newsom in California, who ordered a moratorium on executions in that state. What fair-minded reporting.

The truth of the matter is that "Honor Code" John Bel Edwards has repeatedly decided to bypass both the legislative branch of government and the will of the people of Louisiana. The Gambit would have you believe that these executions are not being done because the drugs used in the procedure are not available. Hogwash. There are a plethora of drugs available for the state's use in carrying out justice for victims and their families. The truth of the matter is that the governor refuses to use these drugs and is pandering to the left. And he's doing this at the expense of the people of the state that desire to see justice finally carried out.

But, don't blame me. I voted for David Vitter.

State attorneys general: Donald Trump's national emergency declaration is constitutional

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry helped pen the below column regarding President Trump’s emergency declaration regarding the border:

In declaring a state of emergency pursuant to the NEA, President Trump is using pre-existing statutory authority to address a legitimate crisis created by lawless conduct at and beyond our southern border. This emergency declaration is not a case of the president relieving himself of restrictions under the law. To the contrary, our president is protecting our country’s borders through means contemplated by Congress and used many times by past presidents for matters less directly threatening than those present on the southern border.

On Feb. 26, the LSBME issued a “Notice for Summary Suspension of Medical License” formally suspending the license of Dr. Kevin Govan Work, according to the Baptist Message. Work was an abortionist at Delta Women’s Medical Clinic in Baton Rouge and Women’s Healthcare Center in New Orleans.

The suspension comes after state Attorney General Jeff Landry and Louisiana Right to Life called on the board to investigate Work’s history of malpractice at the two for-profit abortion clinics.

Enforcement of Louisiana Admitting Privileges Law Temporarily Delayed by Supreme Court

BATON ROUGE, LA – Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement after the United States Supreme Court temporarily blocked enforcement of a Louisiana abortion clinic regulation:
“In 2014, our duly elected legislators almost unanimously passed Act 620 to require doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court today put enforcement of this pro-woman law on hold for the time being.

We remain hopeful that if the Supreme Court grants certiorari in this case, it will be to re-affirm that courts rule on fact-specific cases; because the facts in our case show Act 620 is constitutional and consistent with our overall regulatory scheme for surgical procedures.

Going forward, my office and I will be carefully reviewing the next steps in our defense of Louisiana's admitting privileges law. We will not waver in defense of our State's pro-woman and pro-life laws; and we will continue to do all we legally can to protect Louisiana women and the unborn.”

The statement can be found on the AG’s website here.

Louisiana Just May Be the State to End Roe v. Wade

An recent Supreme Court petition application regarding a law passed in the State of Louisiana may actually be the death knell on Roe v. Wade. The application, which is likely to be denied, would send the Louisiana law back to the lower courts, thus effectively ending Roe.

Per the left-leaning ThinkProgress:

Yes, the court is very unlikely to hand down an opinion this week which uses the words “Roe v. Wade is overruled.” But these abortion providers filed this application because a federal appeals court openly defied the Supreme Court’s most recent abortion decision. When the court refuses to enforce its own decision, that will send a clear signal to lower court judges throughout the country that they are free to uphold restrictions on abortion.

The case is June Medical Services v. Gee.

Louisiana’s Attorney General, Jeff Landry, had the following to say regarding the Fifth Circuit’s ruling on the Louisiana Law, which is being petitioned to the Supreme Court:

“The Fifth Circuit once again affirmed what we have repeatedly said: our law is both factually and legally different from the Texas law that the Supreme Court ruled against,” Landry said. “I once again thank Representative Katrina Jackson for authoring this public safety legislation and Solicitor General Liz Murrill for preserving the Legislature’s intent.”

Jeff Landry on Nancy Pelosi: She Enjoys Her Wall While Opposing Southern Border Wall

 Nancy Pelosi has a long laundry list of hypocrisy in every single thing she does. She has a front door on her house. She has a fence around her house. She has security measures around her house. She has a door to her congressional office. She doesn’t, evidently, just let anybody in. What’s amazing is this is exactly on a much more larger scale … what’s going on in this country. What Nancy Pelosi and the Left want is, they want chaos because, under chaos, they control. They certainly must support the violence. They do nothing to suppress it. They do nothing to condemn it.
