Louisiana Supreme Court rejects appeal in abortion ban case

  Louisiana Supreme Court rejects appeal in abortion ban case BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The Louisiana Supreme Court on Friday denied an appeal filed by plaintiffs in the ongoing legal battle over the state’s abortion ban, allowing the ban to stay in effect. The ruling marked a major blow to abortion-rights advocates and providers, who had hoped the ban would be blocked for a third time, allowing Louisiana’s three abortion clinics to begin performing procedures again. “While it is disappointing that four of the seven justices, without any written explanation, issued a ruling that will effectively deny critical care to women throughout Louisiana, the litigation continues and we are confident we can affect meaningful change,” Joanna Wright

Gary Oreal, who manages the Rustic Inn, told the South Florida SunSentinel that the man who died worked at the restaurant famous for garlic crabs years ago.

“Over the course of 60 years, we have served a couple billion oysters, and we never had anyone get sick like this guy did,” Oreal said. Oreal also reminded us that there is always risk attached to eating raw oysters. He said he will continue to eat them, but that “you are putting yourself at risk when you do it.”

Deaths linked to eating raw Louisiana oysters

Oreal explained that Inspectors from the Florida Department of Health surveyed the restaurant’s kitchen and examined its oyster inventory the day after the man became ill.

“We passed with flying colors and we were allowed to continue to sell oysters,” he said, adding the oysters being served currently are from Louisiana. “If there was a problem with the oyster bed we would know it because others would have gotten sick.”

Another Pensacola person died after contracting the bacteria from oysters he bought at a market, according to the Pensacola News Journal.

According to the Florida Department of Health, in 2022, 26 people have become infected with the bacteria. Six of them later died after eating raw shellfish, including oysters. In 2021, 10 people died out of 34 people sick people. In 2020, there were seven deaths among the 36 who became ill.
