The state legislative session has barely begun and Senator Guillory (R-24) has already introduced S.B. 80, an extreme attempt to outlaw abortion and control Louisiana families’ decisions about their future. This bill calls for Personhood to be put on the ballot this November, in an attempt to provide full legal rights to every fertilized egg “from the moment of conception.” This bill has far reaching legal implications, but could first and foremost threaten the right to access abortion, birth control, in-vitro fertilization, and other fertility treatments for Louisiana couples who want to start their own families.
Enough is enough.
Contact Senator Ben Nevers today and tell him, as Chair of the Judiciary A committee, that it is his responsibility to focus on what Louisiana wants and needs: real solutions to the budget deficit and policies that help, not harm, Louisiana families.
We’ve seen this ballot measure before, and it has overwhelmingly been defeated in Colorado, Mississippi, and North Dakota. This is a clear attack on birth control, abortion, and reproductive health services. We cannot stand by and watch this bill pass!
