Bel Edwards held his monthly talk show, where he touched on a series of
legislative topics, such as the 15 week abortion ban, a deal to renew Harrah’s
state contract, and the surprise success of a unanimous jury bill. Edwards took
the opportunity to reiterate his support for the 15 week abortion ban, a rarity
for a prominent Democratic official.

The House Criminal Justice Committee approved Senator
John Milkovich’s 15 week abortion ban bill 9-8, after it passed with little
opposition in the Senate. The bill mirrors an effort in Mississippi that’s been
halted in federal court that would make it illegal to provide an abortion after
15 weeks. The Shreveport Democrat says fetuses are alive, and deserving of a
chance at life.
