Democratic Louisiana governor signs 15-week abortion ban

WaEx: Louisiana Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards signed into law Wednesday a bill banning abortions after 15 weeks.

Louisiana became one of 20 states to enact the 15-week ban, but it remains unclear if it would be challenged in court like other states.

The anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List made a point of congratulating Edwards, who is an abortion rights Democrat, for his signature.

“Louisiana is leading the way in the bipartisan effort to bring our nation’s laws into line with basic human decency,” the group said in a statement.  MORE

  1. It might be cold to say, but the only kids being aborted are future Democrat voters. If they want to kill their own future, why should I stop them? Especially when their future doesn’t align with the priorities of my progeny.

  2. Comment from a physician, here:

    While I fully support an abortion ban, I have to point out that definitive testing for genetic disorders isn’t done until around the 15-week timeframe.

    So if those test results come back positive for Edwards, or Patau, or Downs, or Tay-Sacks, or whatever else and we’ve already passed the 15 week point…what then?
