Making Adoption an Option!
I'm on my way back from Indiana right now from our successful Indiana Premiere of I Lived on Parker Avenue . We then head to Tennessee tomorrow, where the film is featured in the Christian Worldview Film Fest. Please keep our travel in your prayers, and if you haven't watched the film , please do so!

Our Legislature is in session! As you see below, our main goal this session is to expand adoption awareness, especially at abortion facilities. We are also supporting bills to tweak current laws stuck in federal court. Hopefully, these changes can lead to laws from past years going into effect sooner rather than later. We look forward to defending life at the Capitol on your behalf!

For a Pro-Life Louisiana,

'Adoption Option Act' Introduced in Legislature
Louisiana Right to Life is sponsoring the "Adoption Option Act" in the Louisiana Legislature this spring following the release of the documentary I Lived on Parker Avenue. HB 449 is authored by Rep. Rick Edmonds. It's passage would ensure that Louisiana's Department of Health website contains proactive information for birth parents about the benefits of adoption and guarantee that materials distributed to women in abortion facilities will also contain information on adoption.

Have You Seen I Lived on Parker Avenue Yet?
Have you seen the adoption documentary I Lived on Parker Avenue ? You can now see it for free from the comfort of your own home! The short film that documents the story of LSU law student David Scotton's trip to meet his biological parents was released free online last week following a red carpet premiere hosted by Gov. John Bel Edwards and First Lady Donna Edwards at the Governor's Mansion.
