Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the recent Supreme Court ruling delaying the implementation of a new state abortion law.

Details concerning the case from nbcnews.com:

"The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday blocked Louisiana from enforcing a law that women's groups said would leave only a single doctor legally allowed to perform abortions in the state.

By a 5-4 vote, the court said the restrictions must remain on hold while challengers appeal a lower court decision in favor of the law. Chief Justice John Roberts voted with the court's liberal members.

 It was the Supreme Court's first significant action on the hot-button issue of abortion since Donald Trump's nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, replaced Anthony Kennedy, who generally voted with the court's liberals to uphold abortion rights."
The Louisiana law would have mandated that any physician performing abortions have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. Landry, a staunch right-to-life proponent, says the bigger problem created by the SCOTUS ruling is "that a double standard is being created in this country when it comes to womens' health care." The AG explains that laws are already in place calling for doctors to have admitting privileges when a procedure involving anesthesia is involved.
