The House passed a 15 week abortion ban bill with amendments
on a 78-9 vote, clearing one of the last hurdles before it arrives on the
Governor’s desk for his likely approval. The Senate has already approved one
version of the legislation. Denham Springs Representative Valerie Hodges says
the legislation’s enactment is contingent on the results of a legal challenge
to a similar bill in Mississippi.

Governor John Bel Edwards says if a bill banning abortions after 15 weeks ends up on his desk he’ll likely sign it. Edwards made the comments during his monthly call-in radio show, “Ask the Governor."
"It remains to be seen whether that bill will make its way through the process," said Edwards. "I would be inclined to sign it, if it hits my desk."
