    Louisiana trigger law banning abortions temporarily blocked by court


    A Louisiana judge issued a temporary restraining order Monday 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.

    The U.S. Supreme 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.

    Providers in Louisiana had stopped performing abortions on Friday, unsure of the legality of the practice due to the vagueness of the bill, according to reproductive rights groups.
    “Louisiana’s court made the right call today to swiftly block this unjust ban from taking effect,” according to statement by Jenny Ma, senior staff attorney for the Center for Reproductive Rights, which filed the lawsuit on behalf of the plaintiffs.

    “It is incredibly welcome news during a very dark time in our history. This means that Louisiana patients will still be able to access the essential health care they need — every second that abortion is accessible counts. While the fight is far from over, we will do everything in our power to preserve abortion access in Louisiana and across the country.”

    Representatives for Gov. John Bel Edwards and Attorney General Jeff Landry could not be immediately reached for comment Monday.

    In statement Friday, Edwards declared that he’s “unabashedly pro-life and opposed to abortion,” but is seeking changes to Louisiana’s trigger law — first put in place in 2006 — because it has no exceptions for rape and incest.

    “As I have said many times before, I believe women who are survivors of rape or incest should be able determine whether to continue with a pregnancy that is the result of a criminal act,” Edwards said on Friday.

    I wonder what other rights they are planning on taking away. The so called "freedom party" (republicans) is a laughing stock of the world.

    John Eastman searched and had phone seized by federal agents last week, he says


    The FBI seized the phone of former President Donald Trump's election attorney John Eastman last week, according to a new court filing from the lawyer.

    Eastman disclosed the search and seizure in federal court in a lawsuit that he filed in New Mexico on Monday, calling it improper.

    About six federal investigators approached the right-wing lawyer in New Mexico when he was exiting a restaurant after dinner with his wife and a friend, according to the court filings. Agents were able to get access to Eastman's email accounts on his iPhone 12 Pro, the filings said.

    Eastman is the latest person whose communications have become part of extensive Justice Department investigations related to January 6.

    Eastman contends the agents "forced" him to unlock his phone. A seizure warrant document included in Eastman's filing noted any electronic devices agents seized were to be sent to Washington, DC, or the Justice Department inspector general's forensic lab in northern Virginia.

    Eastman is asking a federal judge to force the Justice Department to return his property, destroy records it has obtained and block investigators from being allowed to access the phone.

    The search and seizure occurred the same day that federal agents raided the home of Jeffrey Clark, the former Justice Department lawyer sympathetic to Trump's conspiracies of election fraud.

    ... the Jan 6th committee is holding a surprise hearing tomorrow

    Restoring rights to the states in accordance with the 10th Amendment is not taking away anyone's rights.

    ... accused of what crime?

    Like President Obama before him there have been no scandals plaguing the nation under President Biden and all gov't Depts are now being run by competent people who respect the law.

    Except for the blunder of Roe vs Wade caused by five chosen Republican Supreme Court justices who do not respect precedent nor the wishes of the majority, America's place in the world as the leader is rising once again.
