  • Louisiana Rep. Danny McCormick, arguing that the state’s existing trigger laws, which would ensure that abortion will be a crime if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, are inadequate to give fetuses equal protection under the law, claiming that women who have an abortion should be in the same legal position as one who takes the life of a child after birth. McCormick proposed legislation that would make women who end their pregnancies subject to criminal homicide prosecutions. Gov. John Bel Edwards, who is anti-abortion, has said he’d veto the legislation. Late in the evening on May 12, 2022, McCormick withdrew the bill from consideration.
