BREAKING: DEMOCRAT Sides With Republicans On Abortion

Looks like the Democrats are finally waking up…

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, broke away from his party and signed a bill that would prohibit women from having an abortion once a baby’s heartbeat is detected, in almost all cases.

Edwards also urged his colleagues to do so as well, tweeting “I call on the overwhelming bipartisan majority of legislators who voted for it to join me in continuing to build a better Louisiana that cares for the least among us and provides more opportunity for everyone.”

The abortion ban applies to pregnancies as early as six weeks, before some woman even know they are pregnant and also include exceptions only for “medically futile” instances where the mother’s health is at risk or the baby is stillborn. The bill necessitates an ultrasound to confirm pregnancy and does not include exceptions for women who were victims of rape and incest.

Even though many of the states legislations have been challenged in court because of its constitutional conflict, state lawmakers hope the controversy will facilitate Supreme Court justices in overturning Roe v. Wade.

The law will not go into effect until Mississippi’s legislation is upheld by a federal court, but so far, it faces legal challenges as a federal judge blocked the Mississippi law by injunction on Friday.
