Lift Louisiana Marks the Anniversary of U.S. Supreme Court Decision in Whole Women’s Health With a Week of Action and Awareness

Lift Louisiana is celebrating the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last year to strike down two onerous Texas abortion restrictions in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt with a week of action and awareness.  

Louisiana politicians are turning LIES into anti-abortion LAWS

Across the country, politicians are using lies about abortion to pass laws that make it more difficult or even impossible for women to access abortion care.

Louisiana legislators are no exception, using their time to enact restriction after restriction trying to prevent a woman from getting abortion care, even when that means lying to her, delaying her care, requiring unnecessary tests, making care more expensive, and shutting down reproductive health clinics.

Tell Louisiana Politicians To Base Abortion Laws On FACTS, Not Lies!

One year ago, the Supreme Court struck down anti-abortion laws that were based on lies in the case of Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. Yet Louisiana politicians reject facts and pass anti-abortion laws based on lies.

These laws try to prevent women from accessing abortion care - they force doctors to lie to their patients, require medical professionals to provide unnecessary tests, and shut down trusted health care clinics.
