CA NO. 1 – Relating to Right to and Funding of Abortion
This amendment adds one sentence to the Constitution expressing that the Louisiana Constitution does not contain a right to abortion. Abortion remains legal in the United States. Louisiana already has a trigger law in place that would ban abortion statewide if the Federal Ruling on Roe vs. Wade changes.
Adds language to the Louisiana constitution stating, “To protect human life, nothing in this constitution shall be construed to secure or protect a right to abortion or require the funding of abortion.”
No language about abortion is added to the Louisiana Constitution.
