Over the past few weeks, Democrats have been insisting that it’s a bunch of right-wing extremists in Georgia, Alabama, Missouri and other states who have been pushing and have passed pro-life legislation.

They might want to check out what is about to happen in Louisiana, where Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards is preparing to sign a pro-life law.

And to the progressives who claim he just doing this for reelection purposes:

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.”

To add to the destruction he is doing to his party’s talking points, Edwards says he is far from the only pro-life Democrat in the state.

The Louisiana law prohibits abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected.
