Attorney Generals of 21 States Want Supreme Court to Uphold Dismemberment Abortion Ban

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry is leading a coalition of 21 states in a Supreme Court amicus brief supporting Alabama legislation that prohibits the dismemberment of living, unborn children during abortions.

“Abortion by dismemberment kills fetuses by tearing them limb from limb while they are still alive in the womb” said General Landry. “Not only is this type of abortion gruesome, but duly-elected state legislatures have also ruled it unlawful because it diminishes respect for human life and ethics of the medical profession.”

General Landry was joined in this amicus brief by the Attorneys General of Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia; and by the Governor of Kentucky.

“While courts have protected a woman’s choice to have an abortion, access to a particular abortion method has not,” continued General Landry. “The law prohibits animals or death row inmates from being killed by dismemberment, and the same protections should be provided for defenseless unborn children.”

Along with Alabama and a number of other states – Louisiana has enacted a state law banning dismemberment as a form of abortion. Louisiana Act 264 was overwhelmingly passed the Legislature and signed into law by the Governor in 2016. Louisiana’s dismemberment abortion ban was part of a challenge by abortion providers to several Louisiana laws; and General Landry’s team is defending the wills of the Legislature, the Governor, and the people of Louisiana by fighting that challenge.

“The people of Louisiana have my commitment that I will do all that I legally can to defend their laws,” concluded General Landry. “Louisiana is an unapologetically pro-life state; and as its chief legal officer, I will continue defending the dignity of the unborn.”

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
