New Abortion Law
Legislation that would require Louisiana's seven abortaion clinics to post signs informing patients of their rights has unanimously passed the House and now heads to the Senate. West Monroe Rep. Frank Hoffman
says the sign informs pregnant women they can NOT be forced into having an abortion. Hoffman says the signs also inform patients there are many public and private agencies willing to help women carry their unborn child to term and to assist after the birth of the child. He says the sign also says the father can not force women to have an abortion. Hoffman says in addition to the signs being posted in waiting rooms, there will also be a DHH website with additional information.
