Many people have asked us how to respond to the decision. Here are a few thoughts:
We would celebrate the reversal of Roe v. Wade, restoring Louisiana’s ability to protect unborn babies in Louisiana from abortion.
Current state law is clear: unborn babies would be legally protected from abortion immediately on an overturn of Roe. Everyone in Louisiana deserves a chance at life instead of the violence of abortion.
But we know our work is not done. We must serve mothers and babies in their time of need. There already is an abundance of public & private resourcesavailable in Louisiana to pregnant and parenting moms. And Louisiana just allocated more money to pregnancy help centers and alternatives to abortion.
Churches and local communities, we encourage you to become oases for those in crisis pregnancies.
Let’s continue to pray for the Supreme Court, for the protection of all life, for support of moms in need, and for peace in our nation when the decision is released.
