Louisiana Lawyers for Life

 

 

 

HISTORY

Louisiana Lawyers for Life was founded in 1991 to join Louisiana attorneys and law school students together to support the legal protection of human life, born and unborn, from abortion, euthanasia, and infanticide through legal, legislative, and educational means. The organization accomplished much in its first 25 years, and we hope to use that foundation to grow the impact of Lawyers for Life.

REBIRTH WITH LOUISIANA RIGHT TO LIFE

Louisiana Lawyers for Life is now an internal project of Louisiana Right to Life, one of the nation’s premier pro-life state organizations. Louisiana Right to Life has spearheaded the pro-life legislative work in Louisiana since 1970 and has helped Louisiana become one of the most pro-life states in America based on Louisiana’s body of pro-life laws. The partnership of Louisiana Lawyers for Life and Louisiana Right to Life will strengthen the pro-life cause in Louisiana.
