On December 1, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, a case that could overturn the disastrous Roe v. Wade decision.
What do you need to know about this monumental case? How will this ruling affect the future of the pro-life movement? And what can churches do now to prepare for a day when Roe is no longer the law of the land?
On December 6, join the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention for a special online event to get answers to those questions and more.
Pray for the wisdom of the Lord to settle upon the US Supreme Court.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry has filed a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ rule mandating COVID vaccines on nearly every full-time employee, part-time employee, volunteer and contractor working at a wide range of healthcare facilities receiving Medicaid or funding.
Landry claims that the mandate will upend the state budget and create healthcare shortages.
“Biden’s bureaucrats at CMS are threatening the jobs of millions of our healthcare heroes who risked their lives last year caring for our neighbors with COVID-19. What’s more: the mandate once again gives more rights and protections to illegal aliens than American citizens. The federal government will not impose medical tyranny on Louisiana’s people without my best fight. The Biden Administration enacted their latest unlawful overreach despite acknowledging that there are endemic staff shortages for almost all categories of employees at almost all kinds of health care providers and suppliers. By disregarding not only the law but also the shortages, Biden is jeopardizing the healthcare interests of countless Americans.”
On December 11, St. Tammany Parish residents will have the opportunity to vote on the Camellia Bay Casino Resort.
We urge St. Tammany voters to look beyond the glitz & glitter of casino promoters and developers and to consider that gambling has a real impact on communities. Gambling addiction is very real and places a major strain on families.
LFF, along with other local groups, have warned that traffic will worsen and Slidell and the St. Tammany community will see the negative impact and severity of gambling addictions and irresponsibility.
St. Tammany voters, beware! December 11th is approaching and early voting is from Nov. 27 through Dec. 4 (excluding Sunday, Nov. 28) from 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m.
"Go vote. If dead people can do it, so can you." —U.S. Sen. John Kennedy, during a speech at the annual conference of the Public Affairs Research Council
The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) is dealing with the consequences of the vitriolic anti-police rhetoric that has dominated the legacy media narrative the past couple of years.
The number of monthly applications received by the NOPD has been cut in half since before the George Floyd protests and COVID, and 125 officers have already left the NOPD this year.
The NOPD is struggling to find necessary manpower to provide law and order in New Orleans.
Ideas have consequences, they have victims too! The media and advocates who attacked the honorable work of our law enforcement officers should be held accountable for the staggering increases in crime.
Friends, God makes no mistakes! Every job you perform, every person you talk to – whether it be a coworker or a stranger in the grocery store – God put you in that moment for a reason.
Remember that you may be someone else’s only encounter with the gospel. Live accordingly!
In His Service,
President, Louisiana Family Forum
