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
