Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on Louisiana’s abortion law, Act 620: 

“Throughout my career and life as a pro-life Catholic, I have advocated for the protection, dignity and sanctity of life and will continue to do so," said Gov. Edwards. “While I voted for the law in question and am disappointed, I respect the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision and trust that Louisiana and our nation will continue to move forward.”
