The District Court's injunction against enforcement of the Louisiana abortion statute is vacated insofar as it bars enforcement of the "informed consent" requirements, and the case is remanded to that court to consider the construction of such requirements, their validity in light of Planned Parenthood of Central Missouri v. Danforth, 428 U. S. 52, 428 U. S. 65-67, and their severability from the remainder of the statute.

Vacated and remanded.
