A Democrat with a heart and conscience, we can rarely say this but Louisiana Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards proved us wrong!
He signed a bill into law Thursday that prohibits abortions in the state once a fetal heartbeat can be detected, usually at the sixth or seventh week of pregnancy.
“In 2015, I ran for governor as a pro-life candidate after serving as a pro-life legislator for eight years,” Bel Edwards said in a statement posted to Twitter. “As I prepare to sign this bill, I call on the overwhelming bipartisan majority of legislators who voted for it to join me in continuing to build a better Louisiana that cares for the least among us and provides more opportunity for everyone.”

The Louisiana House of Representatives passed SB 184, 79–23, on Wednesday. The bill requires that an ultrasound be performed prior to an abortion. If a fetal heartbeat is detected, the bill bans abortion unless, under penalty of perjury, the abortion provider states the procedure is necessary “to prevent the death of the pregnant woman or to prevent a serious risk of the substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function of the pregnant woman.”
The legislation also includes an exemption when a physician certifies that the pregnancy is diagnosed as “medically futile,” i.e., “the unborn child has a profound and irremediable congenital or chromosomal anomaly that is incompatible with sustaining life after birth.”
We need to get back to this America… Bipartisanship. It took amazing courage to stand up and vote against the grain, God Bless you!!!
