Louisiana Passes Ban on Abortion After 6 Weeks
As some states move to the extreme of evil by allowing abortion even after birth (hello, Virginia), some states are rolling back the sinister by banning abortion as best they can. Louisana is joining Alabama by banning abortion after six weeks, about the time women figure out they're pregnant. Guess what? The Democrat Governor is expected to sign it!
The Louisiana House of Representatives passed an abortion ban on a 79-23 vote Wednesday that would prohibit women from terminating a pregnancy once a fetal heartbeat has been detected.
Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards has indicated that he would break with his party and sign the ban if it crosses his desk. The Senate already approved the bill with amendments that include language to require an ultrasound and clarified that abortion did not include medically necessary terminations.
Like Alabama, Louisiana doesn't have exceptions for incest or rape. Which is fine by me, because babies conceived in incest or rape are still babies deserving of life. Abortion is always the same: dead babies. So there should be no exception. I'm not backing down from that. Just as a murderer can't appeal his sentence to the judge, so should a doctor not be allowed to raise his hand and say "but rape." Murder is murder. Enough. OPINION: You Cannot be Pro-Science AND Pro-Abortion and OPINION: No, You Cannot be a 'Pro-Choice' Christian.
Governor Edwards, a Democrat, is expected to sign the bill:
"I will just tell you, my personal opinion is that the people of Louisiana are overwhelming pro-life and this is the conversation that we've been having here for many many years," Edwards told reporters earlier this month.
It's hard to separate hopes from accurate predictions. Okay? Okay. But doesn't it seem like abortion is finally being discussed openly, honestly, and without apology? The left is finally being honest about wanting abortion on demand and at all times. The right is finally admitting they don't want abortion at all for any reasons (because it's murder). We need to be open in our discussions about abortions if we want the culture to change.
Georgia, Alabama, Louisana. Leading the fight for life.
