Louisiana governor signs 6-week abortion ban into law

Source: ABC News

The Louisiana House of Representatives passed the bill on Wednesday, sending it to the governor's desk for signature in order for it to become law. Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, has been vocal in his support for an abortion ban and signed the bill Thursday afternoon, his press office confirmed to ABC News.

After the state House passed the bill Wednesday, Edwards released a statement defending his more progressive work during his time in office, while also standing by his choice to sign the bill.

"As I prepare to sign this bill, I call on the overwhelming bipartisan majority of legislators who voted for it to join me in continuing to build a better Louisiana that cares for the least among us and provides more opportunity for everyone," Edwards said in a statement Wednesday.

2. Logic suggests that a device also be inserted in order to determine the age of the fertilized egg.

10. Our daughter went to Tulane

We visit New Orleans every year and have for the past 10 years. She got engaged there this past October. We love New Orleans but all agree that we can't spend a dime there as long as this repressive law is in place. Guess we'll know what it means to miss New Orleans.

11. Sorry, John. Don't tell me about your progressive accomplishments.

Your insane fascist zealotry here wipes that all out. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice anywhere.
