WASHINGTON — The Louisiana state senator set to argue before the U.S. Supreme Court in March in defense of a law she authored believes the pro-life movement has reached a critical juncture in history.
Interview - Post - Thursday - Gala - Group
In an interview with The Christian Post Thursday following the third annual gala for the pro-life group Save the Storks at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Building, Louisiana state Sen. Katrina Jackson, D-Monroe, said the movement to save the unborn has reached "the turning point."
"I really believe that through prayer, we're at the turning point," she emphasized, "that people are going to turn from an extreme view and people who have been scared to speak up and say, 'Look, I'm a Democrat, I'm a Republican, I'm this, I'm that, but I'm pro-life.'

"But it will happen through prayer. It will happen that people come together and really say, 'This is no longer a party issue, this is a God issue; this is a United States issue. And we're going to stand together and protect our children.' And I believe this is the turning point."
In March, Jackson will present oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in the case June Medical Services v. Gee in defense of a bill she authored requiring abortionists in the state to have admitting privileges at a hospital within a 30-mile radius of the abortion clinics where they work. Jackson has also sponsored an amendment to the state constitution called No Right to Abortion that will be on the 2020 ballot.
