Louisiana Named ‘Most Pro-Life State In The Country’

The state of Louisiana has been ranked as the number one most pro-life state in the country, according to a report released by the Americans United for Life (AUL).

AUL notes that in the state, an unborn child is recognized legally under the law and partial birth abortions after 5 months are entirely prohibited, based on the pain an unborn child can feel at the time.

Additionally, if Roe v. Wade, the US Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal, is overturned, the state of Louisiana has already set-up a law that will ban abortion altogether.

Also, no public funds are allowed to be used in the state for any abortion services, though legislators like Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) have questioned the actions of Planned Parenthood, requesting that the abortion provider be investigated to see if any public money is used to perform abortions.

Right behind Louisiana on the pro-life list is Mississippi, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Indiana. Among the most pro-choice or states with the most lax laws on abortion are Washington, Vermont, Oregon, California and New Jersey.
