Contributing sentiments towards policy:

49% : However, given the state's strong opposition to abortion coupled with a legislature that has shown time and time again that it has the votes necessary to approve anti-abortion legislation, the legal battles appear likely to be more a matter of buying time than a pathway to permanently protecting abortion rights in the state.
47% : A New Orleans judge issued a temporary order blocking enforcement of the ban June 27, but nearly two weeks later, a second New Orleans judge sent the case to Baton Rouge, saying state law required that it be heard in the capital.
42% : In the latest legal development, State District Judge Donald Johnson issued a temporary order last week blocking enforcement pending the hearing in a lawsuit that claims the state law is unconstitutionally vague.
41% :Louisiana's anti-abortion law has "trigger language" that was designed to make it effective immediately after the Supreme Court overturned the key 1973 Roe v Wade decision legalizing abortion.
39% : Attorneys for a north Louisiana abortion clinic and other supporters of legal abortion want Johnson to keep blocking enforcement as their lawsuit plays out.
36% : In the suit, which originated in New Orleans, plaintiffs don't deny that the state can now ban abortion.
