New Film To Tell the Truth of Roe v. Wade
Film Producer at Bowties for Babies Tonight
Thanks to film tax credits, Louisiana has been called "Hollywood South" for some time. Now, these credits will be used to tell a story that hits close to home.

The feature-length film "Roe v. Wade" is scheduled for production in Louisiana featuring actors such as Jon Voight, Stephen Baldwin, and Stacey Dash. Producer Nick Loeb told that the film will be "the untold story of how (abortion activists) lied and manipulated Jane Roe, the media, and the courts into the decision to allow abortion in 1973."

Louisiana knows this story well because the late Jane Roe, or known by her real name of Norma McCorvey, is from Avoyelles Parish. Production on the film begins in the Baton Rouge area in June.

We look forward to hearing from Nick Loeb tonight at Bowties for Babies ( tickets are still available) about how this film will share the truth about the calculated effort to legalize abortion-on-demand in America.

For a Pro-Life Louisiana,
Benjamin Clapper

Committee Advances 'Adoption Option Act'
House Bill 449, the "Adoption Option Act," LARTL's signature piece of legislation for 2018, was unanimously moved out of the Health and Welfare Committee on April 4. The bill's author, Rep. Rick Edmonds, and I lived on Parker Avenue's David Scotton testified before the committee. Three other pro-life bills, each which clarifies language in previous bills in hopes of getting them out of federal court, also advanced out of committee.
