On the same weekend pro-life marches were held statewide, Louisiana has been ranked as the country's top pro-life state.

Over the weekend, the organization Americans United for Life named Louisiana as the #1 pro-life state in the nation. The organization is an American anti-abortion public interest law firm and advocacy group based in Washington that was founded in 1971.

Considering Louisiana's strong set of laws against abortion, this ranking should come as no surprise. Even our state's Democratic Governor, John Bel Edwards is pro-life and has championed most of the pro-life legislation passed in Louisiana over the last few years.

In 2019, John Bel Edwards signed the controversial "Heartbeat Bill". A bill that makes nearly all abortions illegal in the state once the fetal heartbeat is detected, which could be as early as six weeks.
