It is a shame that Louisiana, a pro-life Confederate state, is forced to allow this diabolical practice. It is also a shame that it is represented in the U.S. Senate by a pro-abortion senator, Mary Landrieu, Democrat. Here is the response from the Louisiana Right To Life organization to Landrieu's latest pro-abortion vote in the federal senate on the so-called health care bill:

LA Right to Life Releases Newspaper Ads Reminding
Senator Landrieu: Abortion is NOT Health Care
Louisiana Right to Life Urges Senator Landrieu to oppose “cloture” on H.R. 3590.
Baton Rouge, LA ‐‐ In conjunction with Louisiana Family Forum Action and the Acadiana Right to Life Committee, Louisiana Right to Life has published half‐page ads in three prominent
Louisiana newspapers. The ads call attention to Senator Mary Landrieu’s recent vote in favor of abortion funding and urge Senator Landrieu to oppose the vote on “cloture” on H.R. 3590.
The half‐page ad will run in The Advocate on Thursday and the Times Picayune and Lafayette’s The Advertiser on Friday. Benjamin Clapper, Executive Director of the Louisiana Right to Life
Federation, made the following comment after the releasing the ads:
“Senator Landrieu has asserted in the defense of her vote against the Nelson Amendment that pro‐lifers manufactured the issue of abortion in order to ”scuttle” health care reform. However,
this ad reminds Senator Landrieu, and Louisiana, that we believe abortion is not health care, and without the Nelson Amendment, the Senate health care bill will authorize government
funding of abortion.”
“We hope Senator Landrieu stands for Louisiana values by opposing ”cloture” on H.R. 3590,” Clapper concluded.
Louisiana Right to Life Federation (LARTL), established in 1970, works through education and legislation to restore the right to life in Louisiana by opposing abortion, euthanasia, and other life destroying actions.
Enclosed: Ad Run Thursday in Advocate in the Main News Section
