Louisiana advances bill to criminalize abortion in wake of Supreme Court leak

Also available on the nbc app

If Roe v. Wade is overturned, abortion would immediately be outlawed in Louisiana. The state legislature advanced a bill yesterday that would charge mothers and providers with homicide. The group that helped write the bill says they are working with at least a dozen other states on anti-abortion legislation. Some states are taking action to expand access to abortion, as Senate Democrats’ effort to pass legislation is expected to fail.
