Did you know that we have an initiative on the November 3rd ballot which positions Louisiana to become the first abortion-free state after Roe v. Wade is overturned? With all the noise from the national election, it’s easy to miss Amendment 1, the “Love Life Amendment.”
Amendment 1 inserts language into our state constitution to clarifies that there is no right to abortion or a way to compel the public to pay for abortions, in the Louisiana Constitution.
And with the imminent confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court this Monday, the reversal of Roe v. Wade may finally be just around the corner!
If you want to make a difference on Amendment 1 at your church, you can download the Love Life Amendment Church Resource Kit here. There’s even a legal memo available so your church leadership can get involved without fear of reprisal.
Additionally, LFF supports Amendment #4 as a “Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights” which will tether the growth of state government spending to predictable parameters -- like GDP, CPI, and state population growth. Amendment #4 will make state budgets predictable, reliable, and smaller! It will necessarily focus state spending on imperatives! Consider a “Yes” vote on Amendment #4.
Finally, LFF has released a non-partisan voter guide, LouisianaVoterGuide.org, that assists voters in understanding which candidates support their positions on life, liberty, and limited government. That FREE, custom voter guide is available to YOU by clicking on this link and entering your ZIP code. Please share!
Here are a few other items that deserve some attention as you head into your weekend:
Thank you for continuing to stand with LFF as we draw the 2020 election cycle to a close. Our voter education efforts are in full swing; we have already reached almost half-a-million Louisiana voters so far this year. We need your help to reach more.
