Federal District Court Permanently Blocks Louisiana’s Texas-style Clinic Shutdown Law

The Louisiana measure—which was signed by Governor Bobby Jindal in June 2014 and forces any doctor who provides abortion care to obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital—threatens to shutter two of the three remaining abortion clinics in the state. If the majority of Louisiana’s clinics were to close, the closest provider of safe and legal abortion for many women in the state would have been in Jackson, Mississippi—a clinic that is only open due to a court order obtained by the Center for Reproductive Rights.
