BATON ROUGE, La. (CNN) — It’s Louisiana’s turn to try to pass its version of a more restrictive abortion law.
Louisiana’s version of the “heartbeat bill” is scheduled for a final vote in the State House Tuesday, May 28. Although, one local affiliate tells CNN the vote could actually happen on Wednesday.
The bill bans abortions once a heartbeat is detected. If passed, it would go to the desk of Gov. John Bel Edwards.
He’s a Democrat but has indicated that he will most likely sign the bill into law.
A series of restrictive abortion laws have recently passed in conservative states, including Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.
