Protect Future Foodies! Ask NOLA Restaurants and Bars to Stop Promoting Abortion!

More than 50 New Orleans area chefs, bartenders, restaurant and bar owners, and others (and their businesses!) are publicly raising funds to promote abortion in our city, and we need to let them know we DO NOT SUPPORT their actions!  See the event’s Facebook page.

Contact these establishments today and tell them that they have lost your business! See the list below. Tell your friends as well.  Many of the places you have never heard of, but you probably have heard of a few, including Bayona, Patois, Willa Jean, Coquette, and others.

These businesses plan to participate in an event next Saturday afternoon, June 22, at the Magazine Merchant House in New Orleans.

According to a press release, the event, “Just Cause: A Boozy Bake Sale for Reproductive Rights,” is being organized by chef Mason Hereford and Lauren Agudo of Turkey and the Wolf and Molly’s Rise and Shine, chef Megan Forman of Gracious Bakery and event coordinator Mandi Bordelon. Others, like Ashlee Arceneaux Jones of Smallchalk who is providing artwork and graphics, are offering in-kind services.

They say 100 percent of the profits go to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast and the New Orleans Abortion Fund.

Here’s what Megan Forman told “For me, I just see an erosion of rights in general. When people’s rights are endangered, it’s a cause for alarm. It’s scary when you might alienate customers, but I feel so strongly about this.”

Obviously, the baby’s rights are not important to Forman and the others participating.  It is a sad day in our city when some of our world-class restaurants raise funds to help end the lives of living unborn babies. We want to protect future foodies, not abortion businesses.

Below is a list of participants that came from the “Just Cause” facebook page through a posted image on June 11.  It appears that post has been removed from the event page.  However, we are still proceeding as if these are the establishments participating. If your establishment is on this list, and you are not participating, please email us at and we will mark it appropriately.  In 2023, Second Line Brewing  was added to our list after they canceled an event they had committed to hosting the Sisters of Life because they said they were “unaware” of their pro-life views.

Contact these restaurants today and tell them that they have lost your business.
