Louisiana's state legislature passed a number of abortion related pieces of legislation this year. This past Tuesday, Bobby Jindal signed many of them. We've discussed a few of them previously, but another bill that Jindal signed would exclude abortionists from medical malpractice reform.
This brings up an important point in this election season - a lot of the abortion battles are taking place not at the federal, but State level. A lot of gubernatorial and state legislative elections are up this year. Please make sure you pay attention to local level politics because in the end, they can make a bigger difference than the person you elect to the House or Senate.
