Louisiana is moving forward with a bill that would confirm there is no right to an abortion in the state constitution. The Louisiana House late Tuesday passed HB 425, the Love Life Constitutional Amendment.
The bill would add language to the Louisiana Constitution stating that there is no right to an abortion or taxpayer funding for abortions. To be added, the bill must pass the state legislature by a two-thirds majority and then be approved by voters.
Its sponsor is state Rep. Katrina
