Abortion Drops in LA in 2018!
658 Babies Alive Today Who Could Have Been Aborted
Great news! We were excited to learn this week that Louisiana abortion figures DROPPED in 2018.

Read more below, but this 8 percent decrease means that 658 babies are alive this year who may have been aborted in 2017!

Don't get me wrong โ€“ every baby lost to abortion is a tragedy, and we will continue working until every baby is protected from abortion. But we can celebrate today that these precious 658 babies are alive.

Kudos to so many across Louisiana who are dedicated to supporting moms to choose life!

For a Pro-Life Louisiana,

P.S. We have a big announcement coming soon about the 2019 Legislative Session!
