BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry today released the following statement on the eve of the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the historic Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal in America:
"Since the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade 44 years ago, America has lost tens of millions of babies to abortion. Today, I pray for those lost souls and re-affirm my commitment to preserve life from the moment of conception. As Attorney General, I will continue to all that I legally can to defend the pro-life legislation passed by the Louisiana Legislature."
Attorney General Jeff Landry is currently defending the State of Louisiana in the largest abortion challenge ever filed in the country. The challenge includes seven laws (listed below) that were overwhelmingly passed by the Legislature in bipartisan matters and signed into law by the Governor last year.
