The Louisiana legislature debated a total of seven bills dealing with the issue of abortion during its 2019 session. The bill that got the most attention would make abortion illegal after about six weeks — before many women know they’re pregnant.

Starting today, the Louisiana Legislature will spend two months crafting a budget and debating legislation. At the same time, plenty of focus will be fixed months down the road on October elections.
