Dear Friends,

Yesterday was National Day of Prayer…and it could not have arrived at a more perfect time! Throughout America, we are witnessing outrage erupt following the leaked draft opinion from SCOTUS that indicates Roe v. Wade’s days are numbered. 

Not surprisingly, a radical leftist group published the home addresses of Justices A.C. Barrett, J. Roberts, S. Alito, B. Kavanaugh, C. Thomas and N. Gorsuch, encouraging protesters to storm the homes and intimidate justices in protest. Law-enforcement officials are anticipating the left to stir up trouble.

Chief Justice Roberts needs to finalize and certify the opinion NOW for the personal safety of his justices and the integrity of this court!

This week at the Louisiana Capitol:

Many long hours at the Capitol this week for legislators and Team LFF! With only 4 weeks left in the session, the press is on legislators to get their bills entirely through the committee hearings and floor votes. LFF was busy in committee assisting authors and testifying on various bills. Intense focus is now being placed on Louisiana's pro-life legislation with the shocking news from the U.S. Supreme Court. All of us are looking forward to the final decision from the court and a Post-Roe Louisiana!

Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, documents from the CDC reveal the agency purchased location data that tracked the movements of at least 20 million Americans to “monitor compliance with COVID-19 policies.”

To be clear: the CDC used $420,000 of your taxpayer money to track you!

Government agencies' unbridled power and surveillance of citizens warrants discipline. I do not consent to the emergency powers of executive officials without public and legislative review and veto authority!

 

Friends, God warned us that troubling times would come. He also has advised of the joy set before us and which awaits His faithful followers. Speaking of faithful, this Sunday is Mother's Day!

LFF sends a special tribute to moms everywhere! 

A Mother’s love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,

It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .

It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters

— Helen Steiner Rice

Thanks, Mom...for making all this possible!

In His Service,


Gene Mills
President
Louisiana Family Forum
