…put forward by Rep. John LaBruzzo (R – Metarie). The bill would outlaw all forms of abortion, even if it is medically necessary to save the mother’s life. Any woman having an abortion could receive up to 15 years in jail, as could the doctor providing it. The bill was at one point specifically worded so that abortion would be outlawed “to the extent allowed by the Supreme Court.” That wording was taken out, making it instead a total ban on abortion. This bill would make abortion completely illegal—no exceptions for life of the mother.
My mama said life would be so hard Growin up days as a black girl scarred In so many ways though we’ve come so far They just know the name they don’t know the pain So please hold your heads up high Don’t be ashamed of yourself know I Will carry it forth til the day I die They just know the name they don’t know the pain black girl
