Safety 'Too Expensive?'
 Delta Abortion Facility Continues to Put Women at Risk
The abortion industry loves to say that abortion is safe. Of course, they ignore the baby. Abortion is violent for the baby.

But this spring, we again saw that abortion, and especially the facilities that sell it, aren't safe. Not only did the Baton Rouge Delta abortion facility employ a doctor on probation, but their lack of basic supplies such as IV fluids led to a woman’s hysterectomy. And only months earlier, Delta’s owner, Leroy Brinkley, said appropriate nursing staff was “too expensive.”

As the Supreme Court considers whether or not they will further consider our admitting privileges law , I hope they take a look at what happened in Baton Rouge. It is appalling that the Supreme Court will not even let a state regulate facilities within its borders. It’s time a change is made.

For a Pro-Life Louisiana,
Benjamin Clapper

P.S. As for good news, 66% of our legislators had a 100% voting record from 2016-2019. If your legislator is in that number, be sure to thank them!
Report: Woman Needs Hysterectomy Following Botched Abortion at Delta Clinic
Last week, the Louisiana Department of Health fined Delta Clinic of Baton Rouge $2,600 for violations of state law and regulations stemming from incidents that occurred in March. That's when emergency services were called to the outpatient abortion facility because an abortion patient was bleeding profusely and the facility did not have adequate emergency supplies, such as IV fluids, on hand to stabilize her. After the patient was transferred to a Baton Rouge hospital, the complications resulted in the patient requiring a total abdominal hysterectomy.

Last Saturday's annual NOLA East Dinner for Life was a powerful event. Dustin Bertrand shared how his mother courageously chose life after rape, and Dr. Kathy Allen and Pastor Jonathan Burton spoke to the community about what they can do to help reduce and end the violence of abortion.
A new national poll by Heritage Action for America adds another brick to the foundational truth that Americans are much closer to pro-lifers than pro-abortionists and are strongly opposed to the Democrats’ position that treatment for abortion survivors is up to the mother and the abortionist.
