Legislation that will further limit access to abortion in Louisiana and would likely close three of the state’s five abortion clinics overwhelmingly passed the state Senate with a vote of 34-3 Wednesday.
Due to the addition of technical amendments, the bill will head back the state House of Representatives for another vote before going to the governor’s desk. The lower chamber voted overwhelmingly to pass the legislation — which is more or less the same now — the last time they saw it. So the bill is expected to face little to no opposition as it crosses the finish line in the Legislature.
Back to forced pregnancy and unsafe abortions! Back to women having no way out of the trap. Back to women being unable to plan their own lives.
Gov. Bobby Jindal has backed the proposed abortion restrictions since the beginning of this year’s legislative session in Louisiana. It is expected that he will sign the measure quickly into law.
But…Roe v Wade?
Tough shit, suckers!
Sponsored by Rep. Katrina Jackson, D-Monroe, the legislation would require physicians who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the facility where the procedures take place. It also imposes the same restrictions — such as a requirement for a 24-hour waiting period — on abortion-inducing medication as apply to surgical abortions.
Bit by bit, faster and faster, they’re reimposing a total ban on abortion.
Which was the plan.
Fuck them all.
