The constitution should protect and affirm people's rights, not take them away. Our state’s constitution is too important to permanently change based on the extreme, anti-abortion agendas of some current politicians. We also know that politicians have no place in private health care decisions — and, no matter how you feel about abortion, politicians should not have any say in what you can or cannot do with your own body.
This amendment would harm all Louisianans, but it would most harm those who already face barriers to accessing health care: Black people and other communities of color, the LGBTQ+ community, people with low incomes, and young people. Access to health care, including abortion, should not depend on who you are, where you live, or how much money you make.
Louisiana does not need another unnecessary restriction on the right to abortion. Louisianans do need progressive policies to improve health and advance access to care access for all people.
This November 3, join us in voting NO on Amendment 1.
