In another tremendous Tuesday win, Louisiana voters came out in droves to support a ballot initiative amending the state constitution and declaring that there is no constitutional right to abortion.
According to the New York Times, just over 65% of Louisiana voters supported Amendment 1, titled the “Love Life Amendment,” which states that the Louisiana Constitution does not protect any “right” to abortion or public abortion funding.

“We are protecting our state’s taxpayer dollars and reaffirming Louisiana’s pro-life stance. We also believe that our people should have a say in this,” said the sponsor of the measure, Democratic state Sen. Katrina Jackson, NBC News reported.
“We’ve been working hard to get the word out about what this amendment does and what it doesn’t do,” added Louisiana Right to Life Associate Director Angie Thomas. “This amendment will make sure that Louisiana’s current pro-life laws are protected and can’t be undermined by a couple of judges.”
Louisiana is also one of several states with a “trigger law,” according to NBC News, which would instantly ban abortion in the event that Roe v. Wade is overturned.
“We have several cases heading towards the Supreme Court, and any one of them could be a case that undermines abortion rights or overturns abortion protections,” lamented Elizabeth Nash, associate director of state issues at the pro-abortion think tank Guttmacher Institute, to NBC.
“This is a critical moment for an amendment like this to be on the ballot,” declared Michelle Erenberg, executive director of the pro-abortion group Lift Louisiana. “If we do see Roe v. Wade overturned, it would be used to bolster and solidify the Legislature’s efforts to outright ban abortion in the state.”
As good as it is to see the pro-aborts trembling in fear of losing their right to murder the unborn, remember that these small steps are not the goal.
We can’t simply regulate murder or denounce it while allowing it to occur in abortion facilities across the nation. We must end abortion, and, with God’s mercy on our land, we will!
