Abortionist's License Suspended!
LARTL Holds the Abortion Industry Accountable...
We were happy to see that our letter and press release triggered action at the State Board of Medical Examiners to suspend the license of abortionist Dr. Kevin Work. Read more below.

It seems that many in our nation, often including our courts, portray those physicians who perform abortions to be the victims, as if they are the friendly neighborhood doctors who are there to help women. The truth is that abortion facilities hire doctors who often can't work anywhere else because of their lack of qualifications or history of malpractice and disciplinary infractions. These for-profit businesses, supposedly created for the welfare of women, cut corners in interest of profit, not patients.

We will continue to hold the abortion industry accountable and ensure they are following the pro-life laws of our state.

For a Pro-Life Louisiana,
Benjamin Clapper

P.S. Happy Mardi Gras! Love this image below...
Troubled Abortion Physician's Medical License Suspended to 'Safeguard the Public Health'
The medical license of Dr. Kevin Govin Work, who has been performing abortions at Delta Women's Clinic in Baton Rouge and Women's Healthcare Center in New Orleans, has been suspended by the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners pending final resolution in an administrative hearing. Louisiana Right to Life sent a letter of concern for public safety to the state board last week after discovering that Dr. Work was potentially violating the probation status previously set forth by the state board, when it reinstated his medical license with conditions in 2017.

Pro-Abortion Senate Democrats Block Bill
to Protect Born-Alive Survivors of Abortion
Earlier this week, the U.S. Senate voted 53-44 to advance the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 130) sponsored by Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), but pro-abortion Democrats, in a near-party-line-vote, blocked the bill from receiving the 60 votes necessary to move forward (“invoke cloture”). The bill would have extended federal legal protection to babies who are born alive during an abortion.

In the first comprehensive survey since a surge of outrage over Democratic proposals for abortion on demand until birth and after, a Marist Poll, commissioned by the Knights of Columbus and released earlier this week, shows a dramatic and substantive increase in pro-life attitudes and overwhelming opposition to post-20 week abortions.
