2013 Session

During our state legislative session, which is an abbreviated “fiscal” session, Louisiana Right to Life is pushing legislation to protect women and unborn babies by placing additional requirements on the abortion industry.

2013 Legislative Updates:

  • SCR 57 by Senator Danny Martiny (R – Metairie)
  • HR 105 by Representative Frank Hoffman (R – West Monroe)
  • SCR 57, and its companion resolution HR 105, urges various state departments to freeze state contracts with Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast while inquiries are being conducted into possible violations of state law and alleged medicaid fraud.
    During the process of these resolutions, Abby Johnson, a former Director of a Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast facility in Texas, testified before the House Health and Welfare Committee, exposing in dramatic fashion the truth about Planned Parenthood’s abortion quota.
    Both resolutions were passed with the overwhelming support of both chambers. We will be meeting with administrative officials soon to ensure the requests made in the resolutions are carried out with haste.
