Applauds the SCOTUS Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade
Covington, Louisiana – It’s a day to celebrate! The overturn of Roe v. Wade restores Louisiana’s right to protect the life of unborn babies across the state from abortion.
Concerned Women for America of Louisiana State Director Laura Huber, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, has this to say concerning the Supreme Court Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision:
“In 2006, the Louisiana legislator passed the Human Life Protection Act, which ensures that the state of Louisiana has the authority to prohibit abortion following the reversal of Roe v. Wade. In addition, the Louisiana Love Life Amendment passed in 2020 protects our pro-life laws prohibiting state judges from ‘finding’ a right to abortion or funding abortion in the Louisiana Constitution.
“And just this week, Gov. Bel Edwards signed into law several pro-life bills. The Governor made this statement on the bill signing, ‘My position on abortion has been unwavering. I am pro-life and have never hidden that fact.’
“Organizations around Louisiana stand ready to support, encourage, and advocate for pregnant mothers and children. Through solid resources to assist and good legislation, Louisiana is prepared to support a culture of life that protects all.”
Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee is the legislation and
advocacy arm of Concerned Women for America, the Nation’s largest public policy organization for women; we are dedicated to promoting Biblical values and Constitutional principles.
