New Sec. Of Louisiana DHH Greenstein Blasts Judge’s Abortion Order
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

The new Department of Health and Hospitals, Bruce D. Greenstein has issued the following  strong statement in response to a court order signed by the 19th Judicial District Court, Judge R. Michael Caldwell concerning the Hope Medical Group in Shreveport and continuing abortions:

BATON ROUGE — Department of Health and Hospitals Secretary Bruce D. Greenstein issued the following statement today in response to the order signed by 19th Judicial District Court Judge R. Michael Caldwell that allows Hope Medical Group in Shreveport to continue performing abortions while its license is under revocation for significant violations of health standards.

 

“The findings of the Department’s survey included several egregious safety violations and at least one resulting in immediate jeopardy. The Department’s conclusion was that women visiting this facility would have their health and safety compromised,” Secretary Greenstein said.

 

“So, today, we are very disappointed that the judge would put the special interests of this abortion facility over the health and safety of women. This order was signed without any notification to us and without any effort to hear from medical professionals about the risk to the facility’s clients posed by the violations our inspectors found. We will continue to fight to protect Louisiana residents and to shut down activities that put women in harm.”

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
