Louisiana Legislature Passes Strict Abortion Bill

By an 85-17 vote, the Louisiana Legislature passed a bill that is worded to allow abortions only to save the life of the mother or “to prevent serious, permanent health problems for the mother.”  Legislators rejected a provision that would allow an abortion for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest.  The bill has been forwarded to Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco, who is expected to sign it.  Source.  Will Tubbs, lessvilledailyleader.com.
