Gov. Edwards signs into law ban on second-trimester abortion procedure


Gov. John Bel Edwards has signed a ban on the second-trimester abortion procedure called dilation and evacuation, making Louisiana the sixth state to prohibit the commonly used method.

The procedure, known as D&E, will only be allowed if necessary to prevent serious health risk to the mother when the ban takes effect Aug. 1.

Right, a step in the right direction.


Well, that’s a step in the right direction. :thumbsup:
