BATON ROUGE – A temporary restraining order issued in East Baton Rouge Parish signed Monday concludes that the state cannot enforce “trigger laws” aimed at banning abortions. 

The trigger laws are blocked until a hearing that’s set for July 18 at 8:30 a.m. at the 19th Judicial District Court with Judge Don Johnson. 

The fight against Louisiana’s aggressive abortion laws moved from New Orleans to Baton Rouge on July 8, which set the trigger laws back in effect over the weekend. 

When Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court, a law went into effect banning abortions, even in cases of rape or incest. A lawsuit filed within days of the ruling argued that the language in Louisiana’s trigger law was too vague, and a state judge granted a temporary restraining order halting the ban, pending the hearing.
