Appeals court hears oral arguments on Louisiana abortion case Feb. 6 By FLORENCE L, HERMAN appeals court that the "state Catholic News Service NEW ORLEANS (CNS) In the latest stop on a route that may lead to the U.S. Supreme Court, Louisiana's abortion law came before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Ap- peals for oral arguments Feb. 6. Attorneys for the state of Louisiana argued in favor of the appeals court taking ac- tion that would send the case on to the Supreme Court as a direct challenge to Roe vs. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion. Lawyers representing the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups, however, argued that the mat- ter should be shifted back to the Louisiana courts for a de- cision on whether the 1991 law restricting abortion vio- lates the right-to-privacy pro- vision of the 1974 Louisiana Constitution. The law, struck down in August by U.S. District Judge Adrian Dut)lantier, calls for prison sentences of up to 10 years and fines of up to $100,000 for doctors who pc, r- form abortions. It would allow abortions only to save the life of the mother and, under (:ertain circurnstances, ill casos of rape and incest. The three-judge appeals panel did not indicate when it would ruh;. Robert Winn, special assis- tant attorney general, pre- sented the state's oral argu- ments, pointing out to the THANK YOU Thank you St. Jude and Blessed Virgin for favors granted. B.M.F. has compelling interest in protecting unborn life." Winn argued that the Supreme Court, in its 1989 Webster vs, Reproductive Health Services ruling, opened the way for states to begin enacting laws to protect tile lives of tile unborn and to limit abortions. ACLU attorney Janet Ben- shoof, director of the organi- zation's Reproductive Free- dom Project, called the Louisiana statute "the most restrictive criminal statute on medical issues in tile nation." Benshoof attacked the Louisiana law on the grounds that the statute prohibits the use of reversible birth control devices, such as an IUD and contraceptive pills. The ACLU also presented that argument at the district court level, despite an Aug. 8, 1991. opinion by the state at- torney general's office that tile statute "does not prohibit authorized and licensed med- ical personnel from prescrib- ing or adininistering medicine, drugs, potions, substances or instruments that operate to prevent preg- nancy rather than terminate pregnancy." Tile Louisiana law defines pregnancy as beginning after implantation of the fertilized egg, which occurs no sooner than six days after fertiliza- tion. Benshoof contended that the, statute could be applied narrowly to birth control de- vices despite thai opinion and contended that it would affect the  "500,000 women in Louisiana who depend upon reversible birth control, not the 16,000 who have abortions."
