Dear Friends,

This week, LFF is looking forward to hosting Bayou & Acadiana pastors to work with legislators on consequential bills and encouraging action which honors God, respects life, causes families to flourish and preserves liberty. 

There is simply too much to highlight here…so for today, follow the bills LFF is watching on our website!


During this legislative session, Louisiana lawmakers have a unique and significant opportunity to make a real difference for the future of Louisiana. To that end, the coalition of organizations above (see logos) are asking lawmakers to adopt a responsible budget for FY2024 and utilize both the previous year surplus and the current year excess funds without breaking the spending cap to increase the base budget.

As the budget process continues, the coalition supports these principles:

• Avoid exceeding the expenditure limit to grow government.

• Fully fund the Rainy-Day Fund to save for the future and hit revenue triggers in order to lower income and franchise taxes as promised.

• Pay down long-term debt to free up future budget resources and invest in our state workers’ retirements.

• Ensure spending of one time surplus and excess revenues are on genuinely shovel-ready transportation and infrastructure projects.

Hitting these triggers will lower income tax rates for every individual and small business taxpayer in our state. Additionally, doing so will reduce our state’s punishing franchise tax. All of this will yield economic growth and create new jobs and opportunities for Louisiana families.

We (the organizations above) urge the Louisiana Legislature to adopt a responsible budget with these principles in mind. We believe this will set our state on a path toward solid fiscal future, creating a foundation for economic growth and prosperity for all Louisianans.


The U.S Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit is set to hear a case that will determine whether the U.S. FDA approval of the abortion drug will stay in place or be reversed. 

In 2000, the FDA recklessly approved mifepristone despite the fact that the drug is incredibly unsafe for women and lethal for their unborn children. Thousands of adverse effects, like hemorrhage, infection, and death, have been voluntarily reported, and many go unreported. 

In 2021, the FDA removed several safety requirements for the drug. In response, the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine sued to reverse the FDA’s approval of mifepristone.

Half of all abortions today are performed with the abortion drug, meaning this case could significantly impact the accessibility of abortion nationwide. 

The Fifth Circuit judges will hear the case on May 17th. Please pray that they rule against the abortion drug to protect women’s health and save the lives of unborn children.


Friend, God calls us to do good, seek justice, and rebuke oppression (Isaiah 1:17). When we speak out and defend the unborn, vulnerable mothers, and common sense policy, we are doing His work and answering His call. Thank you for standing with us and making this work possible!

In His Service,

Gene Mills
President, Louisiana Family Forum
