BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) — Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry released the following statement on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and his steadfast commitment to overturning it.

“49 years ago, judicial activists on the Supreme Court ignored the Constitution and set in motion the murder of tens of millions of babies to abortion. I pray for the souls lost and the healing of their mothers. As the chief legal officer for the most pro-life state in the country, I will continue to defend our laws that ensure the health and safety of women and girls from incompetent abortion providers who put profits over patients. I will also continue to pray that this Supreme Court will rule in our favor in Dobbs v. Jackson – returning decisions about abortion policymaking to the states.”

AG Jeff Landry

Jan. 22 marks the 49th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States of America.
