Supreme Court To Hear La Abortion Law

Good evening i'm jazmin thibodeaux.

Thank you for choosing news 15 at six... 3 the supreme court is jumping in to decide the fate of a louisiana law that involves doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges in nearby hospitals.

News 15's phillip boudreaux is live in the studio more information on this.

Phil- what can you tell us?

She was the roe of roe vs wade and she became pro-life.

It just seems fitting to me by the grace of god that louisiana would be the first state to possibly end it."

Both sides agree that the october 12th election plays an important role in the future of the abortion debate.
