Pulse Leadership Institute a Success!
Students Ready to Spread the Pro-Life Message in their Schools, Communities

Today's the last day of our 2021 Pulse Leadership Institute, and what a great week it's been! Our high school and college students prayed at the Delta abortion facility, learned from amazing speakers, advocated through conversations on abortion with strangers at LSU, spoke in a committee room at the State Capitol, and much more.

Bridget Goldkamp from Mandeville shared, "From compelling speakers to caring small group leaders, PULSE has equipped me to go out into the world and spread the pro-life message." We are so excited to see these students make a huge impact for life. Thanks to all our supporters for making this impact possible!

As we look toward August and the start of school, remember that our team across the state gives awesome presentations to youth in school classrooms, church groups, and more. Email us at info@prolifelouisiana.org or call us at 1-866-463-5433 to be scheduled. And, of course, we speak to adult groups as well!
For a Pro-Life Louisiana,

Hyde Amendment Not in Biden's Spending Bill. We Must Save the Hyde Amendment!
For the first time in more than 40 years, the bipartisan Hyde amendment was absent from the annual government spending bill. Pro-abortion President Biden and the Democrat congressional leadership have committed publicly to ending the Hyde Amendment and reestablishing taxpayer funding of abortion. On Monday, a key House subcommittee cleared a spending bill for the Department of Health and Human Services without including a decades-old rider prohibiting funding for abortions. On Thursday, the full Appropriations committee was scheduled to work on the bill.

Billboards Going Up Near Abortion Facilities
Telling Women About Abortion Pill Reversal
We are putting up new billboards close to the abortion facilities in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Shreveport to inform women that they can reverse their abortions. These billboards, and other ads we hope to put out, will supplement the information in the facilities that is required thanks to the passage of the Abortion Pill Reversal Disclosure Act. Our mission is to make sure EVERY woman taking a chemical abortion knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that if she regrets her decision there is HOPE! Our billboards will be up for two months. Can you help us keep them up longer?

High school and college students participated in the PULSE Leadership Institute this week at the Timothy Retreat Center near Baton Rouge. Students learned how to be educated and persuasive pro-life advocates, took a deep dive into all things pro-life, including abortion, end-of-life issues, adoption, third-party reproduction and more, heard from local and national speakers, and went on several field trips, including to the state Capitol.
The Northwest Louisiana Prayer Breakfast is returning after being cancelled in 2020 because of COVID-19. Plans are still being formalized, but the prayer breakfast is scheduled for Aug. 31 and will be held at the Bossier City Civic Center. Tickets are $25 each, and sponsorships, both for tables and food, are available. Proceeds from the event help fund pro-life efforts in the Shreveport-Bossier area, including the Northwest Louisiana Life March.
The Proudly Pro-Life Gala will return to an in-person event in 2022! The event is set for Jan. 15 at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. State Sen. Katrina Jackson will receive the 2022 Proudly Pro-Life Award during the event, chaired this year by Kurt and Susan Crosby. Will you become a patron or sponsor today? Tickets are also on sale now.
The seventh Chers Bébés: Acadiana's Soirée for Life, is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 21, at Cathedral Hall in Lafayette. Last year's event had to be cancelled due to COVID restrictions, but this year the event will be back better than ever! Will you become a patron for the event as we honor Sharon Fontenot and Dr. Kim and Bonnie Hardey?
Pro-life and pro-abortion forces are focusing a great deal of attention on the pro-life Mississippi law about which the Supreme Court agreed to hear oral arguments this fall, but the Court has agreed to hear arguments related to a Kentucky dismemberment abortion bill and decide whether Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, in his role "as chief law officer," to be allowed to defend the law on behalf of Kentuckians.
In May and June, Louisiana Black Advocates for Life hosted a weekly Tuesday night video series on Facebook @LABlackAdvocates titled "I'm Black. I'm Pro-Life. This is Why." While the weekly series has ended it is planned to continue monthly. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for upcoming speakers. If you missed any of the speakers you can watch an episode or the entire series at your convenience!
