This Pro-Life Constitutional Amendment Is On Nov. 3 Ballot
NEW ORLEANS – State Sen. Katrina Jackson, lead author of the pro-life Love Life Constitutional Amendment, will speak at several rallies and events hosted by Louisiana Right to Life around the southern half of Louisiana Friday through Monday.
The Love Life Amendment will be the first Constitutional amendment listed on the Nov. 3 ballot. This pro-life amendment states: “Do you support an amendment declaring that, to protect human life, a right to abortion and the funding of abortion shall not be found in the Louisiana Constitution?”
This ballot initiative received overwhelming bipartisan support and was sponsored by two female legislators, then Rep. Katrina Jackson (D-Monroe) and Sen. Beth Mizell (R-Franklinton). If approved, the amendment will ensure there is not right to abortion or the taxpayer funding of abortion in the state Constitution.
“Louisiana is a pro-life state that loves moms and their babies,” Sen. Jackson said. “We want to keep Louisiana pro-life. The Love Life Amendment, Amendment #1 on the Nov. 3 ballot, ensures that state judges can never find a right to abortion or the taxpayer funding of abortion in the Louisiana Constitution. I encourage citizens of Louisiana to vote yes on Amendment #1!”
