Robin Marty

The Lousiana governor signs a bill requiring all clinics and websites to state that it is illegal to coerce a woman into an abortion, and that there are choices other than abortion.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal made a Baptist Church the scene of his special ceremony to sign new abortion restrictions into state law.

Governor Bobby Jindal is expected at First Baptist Church of West Monroe at 4:30 p.m. today to sign HB 636 – a Governor’s Package Bill – that requires women to be informed of their specific legal rights and options before they undergo an abortion procedure.
