Learn Where Legislative Candidates Stand
on Life Before Going to the Polls on Oct. 12
All statewide elected offices will be on the ballot this fall, and as a part of Louisiana Right to Life's educational role, we are dedicated to informing voters on where candidates and incumbents stand on life issues. Louisiana Right to Life is asking all candidates for the House of Representatives and Senate to fill out a legislative questionnaire, and we are publishing responses as we receive them. We encourage you to vote pro-life whenever you to go the polls! The general election is Oct. 12.
We Need Your Help to Pass the Love Life Amendment! Will You Volunteer?
70 percent of Louisianians are pro-life – so it should be easy to pass the Love Life Constitutional Amendment on Nov. 3, 2020! But we must make sure that all our pro-life people are aware and show up to vote. Dedicated volunteers are necessary to make this happen. We need team captains and members to be local resources for the campaign in each parish and community. Let us know if you want to be a part of this grand campaign!
40 Days for Life President Shawn Carney will be the guest speaker at the New Orleans 40 Days for Life Launch Party on Thursday, Aug. 29, at St. Angela Merici Church, and he is sure to inspire us as we prepare for this fall's 40 Days event. Have you marked this event on your calendar yet? It's just two weeks away!

Parents Be Aware! Over the weekend, Teen Vogue posted a series of images on Snapchat promoting abortions among teens. The magazine also told young girls how to skirt parental consent laws to get an abortion without their parents’ knowledge.
