Louisiana’s Republican governor, Bobby Jindal, signed a bill into law that bars abortionists from distributing “educational” material that promotes abortion in taxpayer-supported schools. Neither employees of abortion mills nor affiliates can speak to students about killing unborn babies. From LifeSiteNews:
The law will advance the state’s interest of “separating the abortion industry from our taxpayers,” Benjamin Clapper, executive director of Louisiana Right to Life, told LifeSiteNews. “HB 305 extends that policy by making sure abortion businesses have no place in state-funded schools.”
“We appreciate the Senate’s vote today and look forward to Governor Jindal signing the bill,” Clapper told LifeSiteNews.
Lawmakers who supported the bill cited the state’s commitment to life and determination to protect underage girls from an industry they say exploits their ignorance and innocence.
“Louisiana has a long-standing policy of respecting the humanity of the unborn child,” said the bill’s sponsor, State Rep. Frank Hoffmann, R-West Monroe. “Abortion providers should not be able to access publicly funded school grounds with any direct or indirect efforts to promote abortion.”
A former abortion mill owner said the material she and others distributed encouraged abortions. “We have a whole plan that sold abortions, and it was called sex education,” Carol Everett said.
Abortion providers promoting abortion in schools isn’t just immoral; it’s a conflict of interest (or should be). Planned Parenthood pushes “sex education” and promotes illicit sexual activity among teenagers, then once the girls become pregnant…there’s Planned Parenthood ready to kill the “unwanted” babies. All power, no responsibility.
The state legislature approved other abortion-related measures. One would require abortion providers to give women seeking abortions information that describes the psychological effects of killing their unborn babies, among other things. The other bill would require medical facilities to keep brain-dead pregnant women on life support until the baby’s born.
In related news, Live Action has released a video of Planned Parenthood covering up statutory rape and other crimes through the years.
