Arrow Oh Robin: Democrat Louisiana Governor to Sign Abortion Ban. - 05-17-2019, 07:46 PM

Looks like someone just took a shit on Robins talking points.


Louisiana governor breaks with Democratic Party on abortion

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Nearly three decades ago, when Democratic Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ wife was 20 weeks pregnant with their first child, a doctor discovered their daughter had spina bifida and encouraged an abortion. The Edwardses refused.

Now, daughter Samantha is married and working as a school counselor, and Edwards finds himself an outlier in polarized abortion politics.

“My position hasn’t changed. In eight years in the Legislature, I was a pro-life legislator,” he said. When he ran for governor, his view was the same. “I’m as consistent as I can be on that point.”

Edwards, who has repeatedly bucked national party leaders on abortion rights, is about to do it again. He’s ready to sign legislation that would ban the procedure as early as six weeks of pregnancy, before many women know they are pregnant, when the bill reaches his desk.

Louisiana’s proposal , awaiting one final vote in the state House, would prohibit abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, similar to laws passed in Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia and Ohio that aim to challenge the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion. Alabama has gone even further, enacting a law that makes performing abortions a felony at any stage of pregnancy with almost no exceptions.

But the abortion bans in those other conservative states — spurred by anti-abortion activists hoping the addition of conservative judges to the Supreme Court could help overturn Roe v. Wade — were backed by Republican governors.

A rarity in his party, Edwards’ anti-abortion stance provokes angry outcries on social media from Democratic voters and disappointment within the party’s broader ranks across the country.

“When Republicans are taking away women’s rights at every step, it’s on the Democrats to show that we are the party that will protect women. When we fail to do that, we make it absolutely hopeless for women around the country,” said Rebecca Katz, a progressive Democratic consultant.

The abortion-rights debates that divide state Capitols across the nation cause few ripples in the Louisiana Legislature. It is one of the country’s most staunchly anti-abortion states, with a law on the books that immediately outlaws abortion if Roe v. Wade is ever overturned. State lawmakers annually enact new regulations seeking to curb access with bipartisan support.

This year’s so-called heartbeat bill, sponsored by Democratic state Sen. John Milkovich, has received little public opposition from lawmakers as it steadily advances. The ban, however, only would take effect if a federal appeals court upholds a similar law in Mississippi.

The Louisiana bill includes an exception if the pregnant woman’s health is in “serious risk,” but not for pregnancies caused by rape or incest.

“It gives a very small window for a woman to be able to access abortion services,” said Elizabeth Nash of the Guttmacher Institute, an abortion rights organization that researches reproductive health issues.

Edwards’ embrace of the anti-abortion legislation is unusual for a present-day Democratic governor, Nash said, although that was not always the case.

“If you think back 20 years, abortion politics were less along party lines,” she said. “There were moderate Republicans who supported abortion rights because they felt there was a right to privacy and places where government should not go.”

Edwards said his views are in line with the people of his conservative, religious state, who he described as “overwhelmingly pro-life.” And he said he extends that philosophy to his decision to expand Louisiana’s Medicaid program under the federal health overhaul law, a decision unpopular with Republicans, “because I think that, too, is pro-life.”

“That’s the way I was raised. That’s what my Catholic Christian faith requires,” the governor said on his monthly radio show. “I know that for many in the national party, on the national scene, that’s not a good fit. But I will tell you, here in Louisiana, I speak and meet with Democrats who are pro-life every single day.”

When he ran for governor in 2015, Edwards made opposition to abortion a central platform of his campaign. In a TV ad, his wife, Donna, described being advised to have an abortion because of their daughter’s spinal birth defect. The ad showed a grown-up Samantha as Donna Edwards said, “She’s living proof that John Bel Edwards lives his values every day.”

Four years later, as Edwards runs for a second term, his two major Republican challengers — U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham and businessman Eddie Rispone — have tried to hammer him for abortion rights policies endorsed by his party nationally.

But that narrative is tough to make stick against a governor who repeatedly signs abortion restrictions, along with data released in March that showed the number of abortions in Louisiana declined each year of Edwards’ tenure.

“This is not an easy issue to pigeonhole people — or especially me — on, at least, because I don’t think the labels really work,” Edwards said.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.

I just wonder if they have gone too far. It appears that are hoping this is the start of the demise of Roe vs. Wade. But the Woman's Voice in America appears to be getting stronger and stronger and I doubt that the majority of women will be as overjoyed as we are on AZ. I could be wrong.
And how does all that wash out? We shall see. Damm if I know.


God bless each and every one of you

No not really. I'm sorry to see that devaluing a woman's right to choose exists
on both sides of the aisle but alas it does. Doesn't mean any wind has been taken out
of my argument, it just means that yet another man is way behind the times. Apparently
this is the issue of the day and we haven't begun to see what the women's movements
are going to do. This also isn't Sev against Robin or vice-versa. In my estimation taking
away a right women have had for the last 40 yrs is a pretty unwise thing to do. There
might even be those women who voted for all this that find out later how it really
affected women in a way they aren't proud of, especially when their daughters move
out of state. All in all its going to be what ever its going to be. I do think we're in a
process where Politicians learn they don't really want to be on certain issues if they
can help it. I'm all for some real freedom and we're getting ready to see where the
majority of women stand on it. What an exciting time!

No one cares about Lousiana and their decision process.

This is a straight dirt pile up.

No value until decisions are explained.

No one in the media got a direct source reference.

Its all been they are wrong who cares what they were thinking.

Thats brain programming thats not journalism.

Ahhhh.
A womans right vs the devaluation of life.

So far each bill that passes puts a time stamp on when an abortion can be performed.
After that time limit restrictions are enacted.

Once again the bigotry of low expectations arises.
You seem to believe that women lack the necessary intellectual capacity and ability to be personally responsible and account able for their actions.

All rights. Even those outlined in the constitution have limits and restrictions.
How is this any different?

Just remember. Women themselves are demanding these restrictions.
It appears you dont believe that their voice counts.

Again. I dont believe you understand the concept of freedom. It is just a word without substance or depth that you parrot. Like so many others.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.

The majority of women are not skeeze whores out sizing up a dick a day and using abortion as the fall back safety net for their actions to ensure they don't have any babies with the genes of daddies stupid enough to screw them. Just because there are some female voices out there that are loud doesn't mean they speak for the silent majority. Feminist voices have always been loud and shrill.

Women will be just fine with it Tommy, don't worry.

You are also eligible to hang yourself in solidarity with the babies you are in favor of killing Robin. Prove that you stand behind your convictions. When your heart goes from beating to not then no one will be able to say you didn't walk the walk.

Somehow I question that a self-professed serial masturbator speaks for the majority of women in America. I could be wrong.
